Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3 Co-Op Developer Massive Entertainment Working on Triple-A RPG?

A goldmine for rumours, LinkedIn has struck again with the profile of an employee for Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment - the studio behind Far Cry 3's co-op mode - reveals that the studio is apparently at work on a "AAA Online RPG" for next-generation consoles.

The project is also listed on Massive Entertainment's website, with a job listing looking for a Level Designer to join the team. "Massive is looking for an experienced Lead Level Designer to join an international team working on a AAA Online RPG. In this position you will lead a Level Design team in building the best gameplay experiences ever conceived. For any game. Ever," the post reads.

Additionally, the job listing asks that the candidate has experience in the third-person action games, as well as "experience working on an online multiplayer, co-operative or open-world game project." An online RPG that isn't an MMO? Maybe... Perhaps it could even have something to do with the rumoured Prince of Persia reboot apparently leaked back in August? Or perhaps that's just us clutching at straws.

Interesting news, hoping it is a Prince of Persia Online RPG. I really enjoyed both of the recent adaptions. Still yet to try out Far Cry 3's co-op so can't comment on that side!

The co-op really was poor and a blemish on an otherwise great game.

The co-op in Far Cry 3 was decent, the characters to me, was what made it bad. I liked the little activities you had to do, played with a bunch of mates it was a blast.

I haven't played Farcry 3 yet but I plan to at some point, and this probably has nothing to do with anything. But I want more MODERN/FUTURISTIC RPGs. I'm tired of RPGs like The Witcher, Skyrim, and Dragon Age. I personally like stuff like Deus Ex and Mass Effect. We need more of that...

@8 Co-op isn't bad in my opinion, I played it with 3 friends and we had a right laugh at the challenges because it brings a competitive edge to the co-op. Just because a few people have said its bad, its your opinion that counts for you, you may hate or you may like it.

#8: It's pretty much a poor man's Left 4 Dead. Consecutive 'corridor' style, rectangular arenas. They do switch it up a little by having meta games, where you have a snipe of with teammates to see who can score the most, but it's largely unremarkable and stealthing it up isn't really an option in co-op. Haven't seen any animals yet. Decent but nothing to scream about.

I thought the characters were okay from what I've seen of them. Scottish guy's "Oot" needing to be translated for Leonard was amusing.

@ 6

to each his own but I have to disagree. those rpgs that are geared toward midevil times, dragons, crystals, castles and the like are what makes an rpg an rpg. Like I said, to each his own and that's just my personal opinion. although Final Fantasy 7 is no doubt one of the best rpg's ever made, I don't really know how to label the time setting of it. it was just great.

Not sure why alot of gamers did dislike the co-op in FarCry 3 that much, i enjoyed it more then that so dissapointing co-op mode in the latest Ghost Recon, and thats kinda sad as co-op in the previous Ghost games was a blast! As FarCry 3,s co-op its even fun and can be done with a friends on insane and it ranks you up quik, as MP seems non excisting at least not much ppl playing it, typical realy if there is no achievements to be earned i not playing it comment is at hand here, so much for the gamers who write "I wish a game not had MP achievements"
As goes for that screenshot looks alot of some sort of egyptian themed background if you ask me and thats def not a prince of persia setting or? I rather would almost bet it could be the next AC set in the farao period lol

It's funny how they always promise you gold and then shut down the studio. I don't think I would want to join anyone unless I knew exactly what I'm getting myself into. Then again money is money, right. Who cares how well a game sells=P

@6 I would rather have both, not just one or the other. I enjoy modern/futuristic RPGs and Medieval type RPGs.

I'm getting Far Cry 3 for Christmas, can't wait. FC3 will be my GOTY for sure, even if the mp/co-op is bad, i've never really been one for multiplayer, hell after i'm completely done with the singleplayer i'll probably just make maps with the editor, it was so ADDICTING in FC2 so i can only imagine in FC3, and the thing is i never really played FC2 multiplayer, i just made the maps and published them and played them every once in a while, like i said i'm not a huge multiplayer guy but i really enjoy creating stuff. My main concern is the singleplayer.

The co-op is terrible. A mate and I played through it thinking it would be fun and ended up finishing it just for the achievements.

They should make an Adventure RPG like Skyrim but do it so you can play with 1,000's of other players like on WoW. I know peope think these kind of games are boring but i love levelling up a character and showing others what gear you have.

I'm not sure the team behind the co-op is capable of a triple A anything.

I'm sure the co-op can be fun with friends, but it's a complete disaster on public servers.
