Ubisoft Annecy Developing Multiplayer For Assassin’s Creed III

It’s been confirmed that Ubisoft Annecy will be developing the multiplayer component of Assassin’s Creed III.

Annecy are Ubisoft’s France-based studio, and previously worked on the multiplayer for both Brotherhood and Revelations, so this is nothing alien to worry about.

This news comes from GamerZines, who saw that on the Twitter Profile of Tim Browne – a recent addition to the Ubisoft Annecy team – it was noted that he is the “Lead Game Designer on Assassin’s Creed 3 Multiplayer @Ubisoft – Annecy” – and that makes it quite clear.

However, to this date Ubisoft has only officially revealed Ubisoft Montreal to be working on the game, and they’re the main Assassin’s Creed studio.

It was previously speculated that Assassin’s Creed III will have cooperative multiplayer.

    “Let’s name 15 games Assassin’s Creed: X, then release Assassin’s Creed II as the 16th game. That’ll rustle some jimmies [/trollface]”

    Fuck you and your shit, Ubisoft.

    This is nothing new, Ubisoft has been using this multi-studio bit-part approach since AC II where the Assassin’s Tombs sequences and a few other bits were sourced out to smaller Ubisoft studios. Some of the prominent ones were Ubisoft Annecy and Singapore.

    Certainly better than the Deus Ex approach of outsourcing but to someone completely removed from the studio who isn’t even guaranteed to do a decent job.
