Future Assassin’s Creed Games Could Feature Co-op

November 1, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Although Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is going to introduce multiplayer for the first time in the series, what about co-op? Brotherhood‘s director spills the beans on the potential prospect of the feature.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood game director Patrick Plourde told GamesRadar:

“I think eventually there will definitely be co-op in the brand. For this one, we focused first and foremost on the validation for multiplayer – and the templar angle was interesting. In campaign, co-op comes with a lot of challenge. At GDC the Saint’s Row guys were like: ‘if you want your game to have co-op – especially in a sandbox – you need to build it from the ground up.’ They’re right – it’s a couple of years of turnaround to make sure co-op would work.

With Brotherhood we were expanding the brand, but we also have the quiet confidence that we’re successful enough to take our time. That’s super liberating – we have great ideas, but we can put some of them on the backburner for the time being then – next time round – revisit some of those old ideas.”

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is currently scheduled for a release on November 16th for North America, while the title will be released within European territories shortly after on the 19th.
