Ubisoft survey indicates next Assassin's Creed may have co-op play

A survey by Ubisoft includes a question that asks gamers if they'd like the "possibility for a friend to join the game in order to help” in the next Assassin's Creed.

After the recent release of one of its biggest games, Assassin's Creed III, it appears Ubisoft is considering new ideas for the next title in the series. According to The Gaming Liberty, the company has sent out a new survey that shows the potential path the next game's development could follow. The survey covers a wide array of topics, but what caught our eye was one question that could lead to an all new mode in the next game - co-operative play. It asks if gamers would like the “possibility for a friend to join the game in order to help.”

Other questions in the survey cover the release of Assassin's Creed III, general satisfaction with gameplay, combat, sequences, and story arc, while probing for the next potential protagonist for future games. The survey also asks questions about general interest in Connor coming back for another game, another game with Desmond, and a revisit to the Frontier.
