No competitive multiplayer in either 2014 Assassin’s Creed game

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. Rogue on the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be a single player affair only, while Unity, coming out for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC will have at least a four person co-op mode. Ubisoft delivered the following statement to Joystiq:

“With Assassin’s Creed Unity, the pillars of the franchise have evolved thanks to the potential of new-generation consoles. With that evolution, we wanted to bring a new type of multiplayer experience, which was asked for by fans and which we wanted to explore for a long time: cooperative gameplay.

“Our aim was to have a seamless single-to-multi experience: This is why we are not opposing single player and co-op; we have ancestral missions dealing with Arno’s story and Brotherhood missions dealing with Arno’s duties towards the Brotherhood.”

Multiplayer was introduced to the franchise in 2010 with the release of Brotherhood, and was present in Revelations, Assassin’s Creed III, and Black Flag. Assassin’s Creed Unity releases on October 28, with Assassin’s Creed Rogue coming a couple of weeks later on November 11.
