A quick announcement:
Effective today, security operations at our location in Seoul, South Korea will be heightened to Level 5 due to increasing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. All remaining personnel will be required to attend Emergency Training by the end of this week, no exceptions. International travel to this facility remains open, but is discouraged at this time.

With our amazing and brilliant launch a week ago, with your help, we have introduced to you all an amazing new technology. A simple disc that would let you explore the memories of actual true events of the past.
Even though we’ve had trouble with the terrorist organization, known as “Erudito”, we stand strong, and continue to deliver you the best we can.
ERUDITO, or The ERUDITO Collective, is a terrorist organization consisting of several individual users whose goal is strictly to oppose Abstergo Industries primarily by hacking Abstergo’s intranet and destroying digital property.
The threat was first discovered in Abstergo’s DDS, or data dump system, Project Legacy, which employed a vast number of volunteers into a special Animus program to compile events in history from each individual ancestors’ perspective into one fully-immersive experience.

“Who is Abstergo?” is a multi-part series of articles that explores the past, present, and plans for the future of Abstergo. This series is being published to create an accurate public profile of the company, and to debunk the myths surrounding its creation and operations.
Whenever a company grows to the size of Abstergo, there are bound to be some theories and allegations regarding the true roots and intentions of that company. Abstergo is certainly no exception. Through my previous Who is Abstergo? articles, I have explored the founding and direction of the company, but still some misinformation remains.
