They have less than three hundred years of left untill we get into the present day and desmond has already found the apple and the day that the templars were gooing to take over is pretty much here.
How far are they intending to spread that story. It can only go so far before it falls flat.
What he means by that is they don't want to create a story focusing on either side of the war, instead it's about the ongoing Templars vs Assassins struggle (as it always has been.) It was stated the American Revolution is basically the backdrop for the game, not the main focus of the story.
And about Desmond, it's been stated that ACIII is the end of his story, it was always planned to end in this game so I don't think they'll stretch it out anymore. Also how close they are to the present day doesn't matter either, since they said they could always go further back in history rather than having to move forward and, well... running out of history to use.
