The lights are on
It's routine for companies to gauge interest in something regardless of whether it ultimately ends up coming to pass. Surveys, focus groups, and trademarks are just a few of the methods used by publishers and developers to kick the tires on ideas. As it has done in the past, Ubisoft has commissioned a survey that inquires about another Assassin's Creed in 2013, co-op play, and much more.
The Gaming Liberty has uncovered the GMI survey that asks a range of questions from participants' thoughts on Assassin's Creed 3 and its DLC, to more future-orientated questions like whether they want co-op in the series. This includes everything from splitscreen offline co-op to undertaking assassination or story-based missions with a friend.
Elsewhere the survey also asks about participants' thoughts on matters like player customization, PvP multiplayer, a new present-day hero other than Desmond, playing another game with Connor, playing as a Templar, playing as a new assassin in a new time period, and more.
The survey also asked how likely participants' would be to purchase a new Assassin's Creed game in 2013.
In the past, Ubisoft has used surveys to gauged interest in features like co-op, and given Ubisoft's history with the franchise, we frankly expect a new game in the series to come out in 2013. We'll have to see what makes the cut.

Split screen PLEASE!
Ehh, if they do that I will feel similar to how I did with Brotherhood and Revelations. I will get it and play it at some time but it wont be day one and definitely wont be full price.
