There will be co-op for Assassin’s Creed “eventually,” says Ubi Montreal

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood game director Patrick Plourde has told GamesRadar that co-op will come to the series “eventually”.

This year’s title, a direct sequel to ACII, has multiplayer, a first for the series. But co-op is something that will “definitely” be looked at in the future.

“I think eventually there will definitely be co-op in the brand,” said Plourde at a recent event for the game in Montreal.

“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.”

Plourde added: “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 releases on November 19 in the UK for PS3 and 360.

PC version release next year.

    Brotherhood mulitiplayer would floop but if they had changed it to co-op it would go so much better adding tactics and hard challenges.

    Co-op would put such a massively different spin on the game.

    With the same lame ass combat and auto-pilot free-running it’d still be a boring game though.

    I find that AC series at it’s most basic form is just a simple platformer and not complex what-so ever, now adding co-op would light the game up to different audiences and experiences.
