One of the less popular aspects of Assassin’s Creed has been the modern sections following the tale of Desmond and the remaining assassins. While a useful storytelling device for following the histories of his ancestors and exploring eras past, it remains a point which some reviewers have regarded as ultimately being the lesser part of a greater game. Despite this opinion, it seems that Ubisoft is sticking to its guns and will keep such sections of the series.
In an interview by Clickonline.com, the series’ lead writer Darby McDevitt stated the following when questioned about dropping this element of the series: "I think it’s a part of the DNA of the series. I think it unifies all the games and helps make them part of one big universe. We still could have assassins and Templar’s in the past but I think this present day part is nice because it allows us to connect what’s happening in history with things that happen in modern times."
