let’s do hope so, because based on the first edition, it said it included everyuthing up to revelations. unfortunately, it didn’t include the info revealed (heehee) in the lost archive dlc. thing was, if they had that dlc planned as being already part of the game even before both the first ed and the acr game came out and the lost archive’s eventual release in february, then those pieces of info should have been included in the first edition. unless the lost archive only started to be developed after those two items’ release, then it’s a different story. in relation to that, if liberation was only revealed to the writers and editors of the second edition upon its official annoncement at e3 a few days ago, then there may be a chance it may or may not be included.

well, the workshop received the first copies of the first ed around mid-september last year. judging between now and september (if they expect to receive the first copies of the second ed by then), the encyclopedia staff still have ample time to add the information from liberation. i sure hope so, ‘coz it wouldn’t feel right if they release a third edition that doesn’t cover the desmond-and-ancestors story arc and yet still have remnants of that arc into the third one. unless liberation will also act as a bridge for the desmond arc and the-next-in-line-modern-assassin arc in terms of encyclopedia publication continuity.
