It looks like good ol' protagonist and stock villain voice extraordinaire Nolan North will be getting his heftiest paycheck yet, as Assassin's Creed III is reportedly going to feature more Desmond than any other game in the series. According to GamesRadar, Ubisoft had this say regarding our contemporary hero -- "All I can say about Desmond's story is you're going to experience more Desmond than you've ever had before. We're spending more time on the present than we have in past games.”
I might be alone in thinking that nearly all of Desmond's required sections in 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations were kind of dull (especially the fetch quests in Brotherhood), but hopefully Ubisoft can put in some cold hard badass Desmond blood baths in there to spice things up. After the non-revelatory Revelations, it would be nice if something interesting was in store for us this time around, story-wise.
