You can love it, you can hate it, but you certainly can’t ignore it! This is my motto for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Every now and then, some new information on any of the *three upcoming Assassin’s Creed titles continue to ooze out; the latest of which is related to newly announced Assassin’s Creed: Rogue.
In recently surfaced reports, it has been confirmed that the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will not feature a dedicated multiplayer mode.
The game is reported to be a pure single-player experience, despite of the fact that the multiplayer aspect has been a significant feature of the franchise since Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
Currently, there is no information as to why the developer chose to do away with the multiplayer mode. Those who have been following Assassin’s Creed news will know that Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is not the only title to exclude the online mode as Assassin’s Creed: Unity is also casting away the multiplayer mode to put more focus on 4-player co-op.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is slated to launch across Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 this November, while Assassin’s Creed: Unity is expected to launch on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 on Oct. 28, 2014.
Assassin’s Creed franchise has always enjoyed a small yet dedicated bunch of online players and doing away with the online mode would most certainly affect their decision of buying the game. What’s your take on this?
*We have also received reports of a new Assassin’s Creed Monopoly Game which is expected to launch alongside Rogue and Unity.
