and the Abstergo storyline has been utterly uninteresting thus far.
It remains so.
When you get to the end, there's definitely something that happens, but it's so...meh.
After so many games with the characters, I was really hoping Sean and Rebecca would have a bigger role. I'm not really sure what the point of them being in the game was unless there's something bigger planned for future games.
I almost feel like this game tried to be a total reboot of the series, but it still wanted to cling to a few of the old story threads without actually doing anything with them (Juno, Abstergo Industries, etc).
Honestly, even though I absolutely loved the Edward Kenway parts of this game, I think killing off Desmond in the last game was a huge mistake. The real world portion just seems kinda pointless without him.
