Vincent Pontibrand is lead producer on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity, and he’s talked about his desire to one day make an Assassin’s Creed MMO.
“I’d love to have time personally, but it’s not there!” Pontibrand told Arabic Gamers. “My dream would be to build basically an MMO where we can revisit all these storylines through the same avatar, that would be awesome. But it’s not the game we’re making.”
He also called Unity’s co-op play the “first step” toward the kind of online play involved in an MMO.
“We haven’t gone as far as we want, you cannot share the world with other groups of people,” said Pontibrand. “When you’re online with three other friends you’re just the four of your in your session of Paris. Other players might be playing at the same time, so one of your friends could drop out and one of your other friends could join you and we have joining progress and stuff like that.”
Assassin’s Creed Unity launches on new-gen consoles and PC later this year.
