According to the latest issue of Game Informer, Assassin's Creed: Rogue will not support any form of multiplayer. With Assassin's Creed: Unity featuring only cooperative multiplayer, this means that Rogue will be the first title to not feature multiplayer since Assassin's Creed II.
Ubisoft has yet to reveal the reason for this decision, but considering that even Assassin's Creed: Unity is skipping competitive multiplayer, it's possible that Ubisoft has decided to focus more on the single-player campaign of these and future titles.
Assassin's Creed: Rogue will take place between the events of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed 3, with players taking control of Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. While playing as Cormac, players will delve into his story and see his transition from Assassin to Templar.
Ships are back, allowing players to travel across the frigid North Atlantic, and visit places such as Appalachian River Valley and New York. In addition, a lot of familiar faces will make an appearance, including shipmate Adewale from Black Flag, and mentor Achilles from Assassin's Creed III.
Assassin's Creed: Rogue will be available on the 11th of November for PS3 and Xbox 360. Ubisoft has also recently revealed the game's Collector's Edition, which includes several items and in-game bonuses.
