The lights are on
Rumors are circulating that Assassin's Creed III may include more than one assassin teaming up to fight the good fight. A recent article over at IGN offers some suggestion that AC III may include 2-4 player online cooperative play. What's the evidence? Well, it's pretty flimsy. For a short time, Microsoft put up a product listing for the game on its website with a bullet point that declared the game would have 2-4 player online co-op. The detail has since been pulled, and could just as easily been a misuse of a product listing template as an actual leak. Game Informer reached out to Ubisoft about the story, but Ubisoft declined to offer any official comment on the matter. While it's certainly possible that Assassin's Creed III could include an online cooperative component, it would go contrary to anything Game Informer witnessed during our recent trip to Montreal to see the game. Time will tell if the rumor turns into fact.
