Assassin's Creed III isn't going to dismiss tough issues such as slavery and the USA vs England conflict, according to Lead Writer Matt Turner.
In an interview with , he discussed the importance of ensuring Connor doesn't take sides:
"Our story is of both the Assassins and the Templars, that’s the focus of our story," said Turner. "The Templars get their dirty little hands in everything, so Connor’s trajectory through the Revolution isn’t one sided at all, he’ll be going where the Templars are and they’re everywhere."
With regards to slavery, its something the team at Ubisoft are prepared to include:
"It’s something we’ve been very aware of,” explains Turner. “Everybody had slaves at that point; the first groups who rallied around emancipation didn’t come around until 1787 – largely driven by Benjamin Franklin funnily enough. That was very much after our game and slavery was maintained in culture."
"We feel that kind of a subject deserves a certain amount attention because it’s so serious and it needs to be treated with utmost respect. We’re definitely not going to shy away from it in terms of not showing it."
Assassin's Creed III will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in November.
