New Assassin's Creed multiplayer will have "justification"

Ezio's new adventure will be a full narrative.

Two of the top creators behind the Assassin’s Creed series shed some light on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed II follow-up game set to release next year.

Before the Interactive Achievement Awards at the DICE convention Ubisoft creative director Patrice Desilets and series lead writer Corey May stated that the upcoming game, in which Ezio returns to Rome after the events of Assassin’s Creed II, will have a full single-player campaign. Desilets added that the game’s multiplayer, the first for the series, will have "narrative justification."

"It won’t be boring," added May jokingly.

When asked how it is possible that another full Assassin’s Creed game could be made a year after Assassin’s Creed II, Desilets stated that it took a year to make the technology for Assassin’s Creed II and that should make it easier to make this upcoming installment quicker.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and is expected to release in March 2011.
