Despite the mixed-bag that was Assassin's Creed III we actually really like the idea of Connor Kenway. The half Native American, half skull-crackin' Templar who brought his strong, silent tomahawk down in ACIII will not be returning to the story featured in future Assassin's Creed games according to lead writer Darby McDevitt.
Let’s face it, Connor wasn’t exactly Daniel Day Lewis from The Last of the Mohicans but he came off as one of the most badass Assassins stuck in a game that couldn’t live up to expectations.
Now it seems Ubisoft has gone and killed off the would-be heartthrob; McDevitt says Connor is done for. Which may be okay considering the massive amount of sexy Connor themed fan fiction out there – oh yeah, that’s happening.
“…we planned the Edward, Haytham, Connor saga more than 2 years ago, long before any of you had heard Connor’s name or learned his backstory. We had no idea how he (or Haytham) would be received, but we had our own long story to tell, and we embraced it. And it was our hope that — taken together — this saga would represent the story of a family… a migration, a mixing of cultures, and a dashing of ideals… Connor played his part, Haytham played his, and now Edward has had his say too.”
It seems like a waste of a good character stuck in a bad story. What do you think, should Connor –AKA Ratonhnhaké:ton – live to fight another day?
