Altair to return in Assassin's Creed 2?

Ubisoft animation director David Wilkinson has hinted in a recent interview that the company is working on a sequel to the highly successful Assassin's Creed, which will apparently mark the return of Altair in some capacity.
While extolling the works of fellow animator Alex Drouin, who previously worked on titles such as Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the original Assassin’s Creed, Wilkinson commented:
"He's busy making Altair even more beautiful. Last thing I saw him do was getting Altair to swim."
Although the notion of Assassin’s Creed 2 is entirely conceivable in itself, we’ve still yet to hear official confirmation on the matter, though Wilkinson’s comments nonetheless provide an intriguing insight as to what the company has up its sleeves.
We’ll keep you posted on any developments.

I think Assassins Creed is enough, making another one will be torture.

I always thought that assassins creed 2 would have desmond become altair in the real world

Bring it on. It's a nice diversion from all the shooters und racing titles, or combined released as gta4 and sr2. It can't hurt to have some RPGs or Stealth games once in a while.

psn id: gingo.... i thought assassins creed was actually quite good, ok it got repetitive but it was a change from the usual shooters and other games

T-Dogg400, Assassins creed ended in a cliff hanger. They need to finish the story.
I for one, am hoping that part two, starts off with an action packed escape.

I would hope that there will be a sequel to Assassins Creed. The end of the first game really left me hanging. I was more interested in the Altair story when I first started playing the game, but by the end of it, I was more engrossed in the Desmond story! I hope they release another one, sans the repetition that the original introduced.

Got the first game, sequel and Prince of Persia are mine.

I really liked the 1st game, even with some visual glitches and repetative gameplay, I loved jumping over roof tops in Jerusleum, blinding.

I would like to see the Legacy of Kain series come back
- 4:05am EDT - October 14th, 2008
Im glad that they still working in the franchise besides the critics, I love the dialogues and dualism in this game
- 4:08am EDT - October 14th, 2008
Hopefully they won't release this one until they remove ALL the freezing issues the first one had. Also, it would be nice if they sped up the loading times... and let you just start playing right away instead of having to listen to mister master assassin give you your mission... that was gay...

Off topic but does anyone know when the Resistance 2 beta goes up? Cant wait to see what this game will feature

the first one was to over hype for a game that have you doing the same thing over and over, Major dull fest after 45 mins of game play. Hope they make this one different and let us do different things.

I just hope that it doesn't get as repetitive as the first.

LOL, I love the photoshop work, it looks almost believeable!

@11 i would too, but i like Soul Reaver a bit better than Blood Omen, and with Raziel dead and absorbes into the physical Soul Reaver sword (is that what the sword is called? i can't recall) im not sure how it could continue..well Kain could do something, i cannot remember the reason Raziel put himself in front of the Physical blade, Kain was not happy that it struck Raziel..but what was the reason
ON TOPIC: i enjoyed the gameplay of Assassins Creed. but the same thing over and over again got to me by the end, i finished it purly because of the actual assassinations and the fighting (thought really easy to master and basically become invincable) was actually kind of cool and fun to watch. Also the story was cool, i wished it was portrayed in a different way or more seperated in time, switching back and forth EVERY dream kind of kept you from getting to connected
