Ubisoft: Eventually There Will Be Co-op In Assassin's Creed Franchise

There will "eventually" be co-op support featured in the Assassin's Creed series, revealed game director Patrick Plourde in an interview with Games Radar.

For the first time since the inception of the franchise, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will feature a full blown online multiplayer component. But what about co-op?

"I think eventually there will definitely be co-op in the brand," says Plourde.

"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,'" he said.

"They're right "“ it's a couple of years of turnaround to make sure co-op would work. 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 is out November 16 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
