Assassin’s Creed III features a “flamboyant” assassin, and while Connor is a little bit more “straight laced” than Ezio, director Alex Hutchinson feels he’s a cool Assassin.
In an interview with OPM, Hutchinson says, “I think following up Ezio is going to be a challenge, no matter what you do. He’s so iconic, he’s over-the-top, he’s funny, he’s a juicy character to dig into.”
“We just wanted to create someone who could stand up against the other two Assassins. Yes, [Connor] is a little bit more strait-laced, but it’s the story of his whole life. We really hope people get a kick out of him.”
When asked about Hutchinson’s best elements in Assassin’s Creed III, he said “We spent a lot of time working on this Assassin, trying to make someone who was compelling to people and seemed like a cool person to be. The fact that responses have been positive – we’ve already seen cosplay and fan art – and people seem to really have adopted him, which was really satisfying.”
“When you haven’t shown the new guy, you’re always worried that people won’t embrace him as they did with Ezio before. Overall, just the sheer excitement we’ve generated on a game that comes out once a year has been so rewarding. It’s tough for us. If something comes out once a year, people potentially get tired of it and we work on it every day. Getting people this excited has been really rewarding”, he concluded.
