- Following this idea...
- Can't believe I'm saying this, but it's confirmed.
- No, it's not.
- It actually is. There is an entire presentation one can find in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag over the ctOS project being advertised to Abstergo in the real world hacking section.
- Potentially Jossed - One of the "Randomizer" videos you can uncover (its on one of the servers in the Bunker) shows a kid playing one of the Assassin's Creed games while his dad sits next to him trying to figure out why the bad guy is talking after he was killed ("Cause its his confession dad!" "That... doesn't make any sense..."). The kid then bemoans the fact that the dad is ruining the experience for him. May also double as a Take That against Assassin's Creed. Though I suppose with the technology at Abstergo's fingertips, they could be making Assassin's Creed games... but I don't see why they would.
- You mean Assassin's Creed: Liberation? The game that is a video game in the AC universe.
- Actually, in Watch_Dogs there is an Easter Egg where one of the targets is actually Olivier Garneau, the CEO of Abstergo Entertainment from Black Flag.
- Game Theory has an episode on the subject that breaks it down very well.
- Why the world? The ctOS is explicitly stated to affect cities in the US, not anywhere else.
- Perhaps other countries adopt their own version of ctOS that are all linked to one another. Aiden shutting down the Chicago one would be a domino effect on the others.
- Since the game has some pretty open ended missions, maybe the final mission will have a choice to shut down the ctOS? It may be tied into a multiple ending sort of thing.
- Somewhat confirmed. Aiden has to shut down the ctOS temporarily to keep it out of Damien's hands, even if it makes him enemies with Ded Sec.
- Confirmed. He acts and generally plays like a pulp hero, right down to a tragic backstory causing him to go after criminals. He is essentially a modern pulp hero.
- Jossed, he only kills those directly responsible for his niece's death Marice's death is optional though, you can choose to either shoot him or walk away
- Where is that confirmed?
- Could be subverted in that while it's set in the same universe, the Assassin/Templar conflict may have little/nothing to do with the story.
- It turns out that the Assassins put out a hit on Olivier Garneau of Abstergo Entertainment (although he's mislabeled as CEO instead of Chief Creative Officer) under the guise of "child abandonment", for Aiden Pearce to execute.
- Jossed. Neither bits from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag ever come up in-game.
- However, Assassin's Creed does show up in-game, in game form. A randomizer video on one of the bunker servers shows a kid playing one of the AC games with his dad watching. Dad then proceeds to ruin the experience by questioning game elements.
- Or she deliberately faked her own death, as in the recording right afterwards she mentions that she's "good at disappearing".
- More specifically, it would almost certainly use an Apple of Eden, since this seems to be the Templars' ultimate goal as demonstrated at the climax of the very first Assassin's Creed. This probably means that the higher-ups in Blume (and Lucky Quinn, who was pulling their strings) are Templars, and maybe even T-Bone, as the lead designer of ctOS, is a former Templar or was at least privy to their secret, or figured it out on his own.
- This would also mean that the Assassins would almost certainly appear at some point, even if they aren't specifically named as such in-game.
In Bad Blood Aiden's 3rd audio log has him literally talking about a banana bread recipe which seems frivolously out of character until you realize that Belwether can use anything as it's imprint. The entire recording could be confirmation that he's been targeted.
He already notices this as his weak point early on in the game. And W_D was not subtle at foreshadowing. True Damien's actions could be the thing that Jordi's chat was foreshadowing, but maybe in the back of his head he, like Aiden knew that they could easily be at odds and was or considered planning something.
- Sequel confirmed and it's set in San Francisco.
We know AC 2016 is set as a side-story to the Assassin's Creed universe, and W_D is canon to said universe. Henceforth, Aiden would likely make a cameo. Potentially, he could be mentioned by the Assassins or Templars as having killed the Abstergo CEO (Which he did) or could also potentially be seen in some form of montage, or, most likely IMO, would hack the Animus at some point, possibly working in conjunction with Erudito.
