Those who may be looking forward to playing some competitive multiplayer in either Unity or Rogue look to be out of luck. According to a report in Joystiq, neither 2014 release in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be featuring multiplayer.

No Man’s Sky- Seeing it all could take quite some time

No Man’s Sky is a quite ambitious title being developed for the PS4 by Hello Games in which players can explore multiple planets throughout a galaxy. Just how big is the game going to be? At Gamescom Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray filled us in on just how vast the game’s procedurally-generated universe will be. In the early stages of development the game was utilizing a 32-bit number to generate planets, and using that “it would take you four or five thousand years to see every planet if you spent only a second on each one.”

That sounds incredibly vast, but the team wasn’t satisfied, and increased that 32-bit number to a 64-bit number...
