At a recent Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood event, game director Patrick Plourde mentioned that eventually, co-op will find its way into future Assassin’s Creed games.
“I think eventually there will definitely be co-op in the brand,” Plourde said. “For Brotherhood we focused first and foremost on the validation for multiplayer. 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.”
It’s great news to know that Ubisoft is digging at the idea of introducing co-op in future titles…
