There will be an ultimate assassin. This much you can expect from Ubisoft as a rep in E3 affirms that Assassin's Creed 2(PS3, Xbox 360, PC) is but the second in an intended trilogy.
Said the Ubi rep, "It's always been planned to be a trilogy, and Desmond is going back [in time, using the Animus] to [eventually] become the ultimate assassin. Can't tell you any more, though."
Assassin's Creed 2 is expected to arrive on November 17, 2009.
