Ubisoft's Financial Update Reveals Upcoming Assassin's Creed Multiplayer Mode [Updated]
Written Wednesday, January 13, 2010 By Dan WebbView author's profile
In Ubisoft's financial update for its third fiscal quarter (yes, the one that saw Splinter Cell: Conviction get delayed) towards the end of the press release Ubisoft makes mention of an upcoming Assassin's Creed multiplayer mode.
The press release states that coming in 2010 is "a new episode of Assassin’s Creed, which will be the first in the series to have an online multiplayer mode."
No more details at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled and we'll keep you updated when we hear more.
We only have one question now... actually, maybe two.
Is the single player game not sacred anymore? And how the hell is multiplayer going to work in Assassin's Creed anyway? I can't say I'm intrigued or even care, it's hardly a franchise that needs multiplayer.
[Update:] IGN reached out to Ubisoft and got a few answers about the upcoming product. Ubisoft clarified that this is a new project and not an expansion to our Game of the Year, Assassin's Creed 2. The title picks up where Assassin's Creed 2 left things and will feature Ezio... and of course will feature multiplayer.
At least Ezio returns. That we do approve of.
