Assassin's Creed II's dad Patrice Desilets has confirmed that the Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities download packs due next year were originally meant to be in the main game.
 
"I felt that, 'Okay, there were too many things to do and to finish.' So we said, 'Okay, let's take a portion of the game that was planned and we'll give it in DLC.' We'll remove some stress to the team while giving more to fans and people who like Assassin's Creed," Desilets said.
 
"I think we gave them so much content that they cannot say that we owe them, that we didn't give them a lot for their 60 bucks," he added.
 
The two bonus episodes are due out in January and February for $4 and $5 respectively, and fill in the "Sequence" gap in the Assassin's Creed II storyline.
 
Desilets also hinted that the team may reintroduce another feature that was cut in order to get the game finished - the ability to replay any mission. "Eventually maybe we'll come out with some way to do it somehow," he said.
 
Here's to Hoping that this doesn't become a popular trend for story-driven games, otherwise alot of experiences will be ruined.
