Ubisoft revealed via Twitter that their Massive Entertainment studio is taking on an Assassin’s Creed project. What’s interesting is that Massive has only ever made Real-Time Strategy games on the PC (Ground Control and World in Conflict). Could this mean that an Assassin’s Creed game in the future is going to venture into the RTS genre?
Even more interesting is that in 2008, Ubisoft announced that they were planning for Massive to start work on an MMO. Are these related at all? Could the next Assassin’s Creed be an RTS-MMO? Maybe something like Company of Heroes Online?
It should be noted that the tweet did mention that Massive is teaming up with another unnamed studio so this is just a stab in the dark (see what I did there?) and the end result really could be anything. We’ll keep you posted when we get more information.
