what would have been your reaction with a fully but great third party DLC? Do you think SSM did this for a quick $ grab? Do you think he should be in the next game if there's ever a sequel?
Connor is already dead. See the AC 4 trailer and all it's stupid glory. Pirate assassins*facepalm*
Cole mcGrath is dead, Sir Dan is dead, parappa is dead, does it make a reason not to add him? And beside, he is the family of Edward. AC4 looks really good.
I'd have welcomed any Assassin really. Not to mention an AC rep has been heavily requested throughout the game's lifetime, with both Ezio and Connor coming up as suggestions.
And yes, Zeus was a money grab and a promotional tool for GoW: Ascension. It's pretty blatant when the character announcement comes with "get these characters free if you BUY THE NEW GOD OF WAR". There is literally no other reason for his inclusion.
