While not much details is known about Assassin’s Creed 3’s upcoming multiplayer component, at least we know now who’ll be developing it; and it’s none other than Ubisoft-Annecy, the same studio who handled multiplayer duties for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
This news was dug up when Tim Browne updated his twitter page to read “Lead Game Designer on Assassin’s Creed 3 Multiplayer @Ubisoft-Annecy.”
Browne, who’s no stranger to multiplayer development is also an industry vet who has worked on games such as – Operation Flashpoint: Red River and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.
Details has been scarce on the ACIII multiplayer front but it’s been heavily rumored that the game will feature online co-op and that it allow up to 2-8 player to play online at the same time.
Assassin’s Creed III is set to hit the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this October 30.
