New Assassin's Creed Announced, Features Multiplayer

During Ubisoft's updated 2009 fiscal third quarter results this morning, it was revealed that a new episode of Assassin's Creed will be released in its fiscal 2011 year, which begins on April 2010, and will include an online multiplayer mode. Ubisoft also noted its new Ghost Recon and Driver titles will be out during the same time period.

"The 2010-11 fiscal year will see a greater number of franchise releases than fiscal year 2009-10, including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction, a new game in the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series, Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands, Driver, Raving Rabbids 4 and a new episode of Assassin's Creed, which will be the first in the series to have an online multiplayer mode," the statement reads.

The story is too old to be commented.

If they continue the improvement that from the First to the Second, I would love to play this...Online would be interesting. Competitive or Co - Op? Competitive, I see like Assassinate -> Who Kills the Target First, Death match -> Of course, except Blending In will be the most important skill, certain time where you can use your Eagle Vision...I have a lot more ideas but I think that is enough xD

Honestly I'm not too happy.. well then again this could mean March '11 for all I know.
But didn't expect a sequel so soon. They do realize people want to see improvements in the game right?

BUt multiplayer does sound awesome.
Love to assassinate 8 guys all at once in 4 player co-op. (each of em doing double assassinations.
