Assassin’s Creed 3 hasn’t been out all that long, but Ubisoft is supposedly canvassing opinion for a sequel among fans, if an unearthed survey is anything yo go by. The questions include ask about gamer’s desire for yearly sequels, co-op functionality, and a greater emphasis on Uncharted 3-style platforming. Get the details below.

The Gaming Liberty reports that the survey generally covers questions relating to elements of Assassin’s Creed 3 – such as gameplay, the plot and so on – but gets rather interesting when it starts to ask questions about sequels and co-op.

One particular question asks, “If it was to become available next year, how likely are you to purchase the next Assassin’s Creed game?”, suggesting that Ubisoft has its eye on repeating the ‘Brotherhood’ and ‘Revelations’ route of the Ezio trilogy.

The next question is really interesting however, as it asks participants to rate their experience with Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, suggesting that the publisher is looking at a more contained, set-piece driven experience.

Finally, a question regarding co-op asks how enjoyable a drop-in/drop-out feature would be in the next Assassin’s Creed game.

The survey has yet to be confirmed by Ubisoft, so please treat it as rumour for now, but Ubisoft is no stranger to the focus testing route, as it even polled opinion for the creation of Assassin’s Creed 3.

What do you make of the above questions? Would you like to see these features? Let us know below.
