Far Cry 3 multiplayer developed by Ubisoft Massive

Tuesday, 6th March 2012 02:47 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft’s multiplayer go-to team Massive is lending a hand with Far Cry 3.

The news comes courtesy of Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo, kindly sharing news from Ubisoft’s GDC event via Twitter.

Vox Games editor Brian Crecente added a few more hints as to what Massive is doing with Far Cry 3′s online component: Apparently the multiplayer is referred to as an “online universe” and will incorporate “elements from the indie scene and social games”.

The Sweden-based Ubisoft Massive also assisted with the multiplayer aspect of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, but is probably better known for Ground Control and World in Conflict. The developer is also apparently working on an unannounced MMO.

Ubisoft had promised not to break any news during GDC, as part of the organisers’ push to tone down the media circus aspect of the event.

    Well, it cant be worst than FC2′s MP. They’d have to literally set out to make it as bad as humanly possible to achieve that.

    Who thinks they should have both single player only and single player / multiplayer editions of this game? They could probably charge $10 MORE for the editions that didn’t include multiplayer. I mean really did you play Far Cry 1,2 & Crisis?

    @3 Sure from Customer point of view, but Developers want to add anything possible like coop,MP… to justify $60 price tag.

    What a waste. Massive were pretty much my favourite studio back in the day.
