    Source.

    Surprised they have announced the next Assassins Creed so soon after II was released.

    one guy plays the assassin and has the hide in the city, other people play guards and have to find and kill him.

    Reverse hide and seek, really.

    Is there any other MMO's that are like Assassin's Creed?
    Good luck for Ubisoft if they can pull it off.

    Assassins Creed was never a MMO in the first place, it didn't even have online in the first place.

    except how many legs do the assassins have? (I counted 8 for five assassins)

    I'm obsessed with the PS3 assassin's creed games Can't wait

    Assassin's Creed has had two main games and 3 spin-offs. I've seen more milked cows, trust me.

    But as for the online multiplayer, it's not uncommon. I mean, Metal Gear Solid is a stealth action game and MGO was pretty successful, especially in MGS4.

    Oohh...I've got a few ideas. I'm a big fan of the game, would love multiplayer in it but I don't think it will ignite to be honest. To me, the multiplayer will feel Phantom Hourglass-ish... but that's just me. Here are my ideas:

    1. Some of the missions from Assassin's Creed 2 such as race with thieves and capturing the flag would be very fun. Those carnival minigames would be awesome too.
    2. I guess they can pull a Pokemon Underground and everyone can be in one city where people will take bases and try to take home treasure without being detected. An assassination = loss of money to the killed guy.

    And Assassin's Creed has blades, whats your point? They both have to do with steath and taking action to complete your objective. Just think of the same gameplay as MGO only with swords and other weapons. Besides, they did say that maybe the next game will take place in World War or Civil War. I don't remember which ones but that just means it will have guns.

    Sod Assassin's Creed, what about bringing Rayman back. As much as I enjoyed Rabbids Go Home I want a new proper Rayman.

    Also as for Driver...spend time on revitalising it or don't bother.

    Or if they move the setting forward, you'd getting things like dual assassinations like a sniper cover, etc.
