For the first time since Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, an Assassin's Creed game will not have competitive multiplayer, but instead implement a co-op mode for up to four players. Well, at least Assassin's Creed Unity will have co-op; Assassin's Creed Rogue will be a single-player experience only.
Ubisoft explained to Joystiq why they opted to remove competitive multiplayer for at least the time being:
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.
I'm personally excited about the lack of competitive multiplayer. The co-op is exactly what I wanted from Brotherhood in the first place.
