Assassin's Creed's "Desmond" Will Have His Story Wrapped Up By 2012

According to Assassin's Creed: Revelations' creative lead Alexandre Amacio, the character of Desmond in the game will have his own personal story wrapped up by December 2012.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Amacio confirmed the character's fate will be known by the end of next year.
“In Assassin’s Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012."

“That’s fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point.

“We had such a complex and strong narrative that we ourselves did our best to just try to execute these games before that date. It would be stupid of us to be centring a game on a semi-reality and then have that conclusion happen after that date in real life.”
Assassin's Creed: Revelations is out on November 15 in the US and November 18 in the UK for the PS3, 360, and PC.
