Do you want more cooperative play in the next Assassin's Creed? Ubisoft wants to know. According to The Gaming Liberty, Ubisoft has been circulating a survey asking questions about overall satisfaction with Assassin's Creed 3 and what new features customers would like to see in the series. The survey isn't available for the public, or else I'd kindly link you to it.
One of the more intriguing questions deals directly with co-op. They ask how you would feel about the "Possibility for a friend to join the game in order to help me at any time during the solo mode." That, my friends, is a good indication that they're at least considering the possibility, maybe, however unlikely, of offering a cooperative campaign. Assassin's Creed 3's separate Wolf Pack mode was pretty cool, but a fully realized cooperative campaign would be a great option for gamers.
Don't get your hopes up, yet. This is just a survey, after all. Ubisoft has conducted surveys before. They even asked about an online and offline cooperative mode for Assassin's Creed 3 back in 2010. That got us the four player Wolf Pack mode. Maybe they'll crunch the numbers and finally give us an Assassin's Creed co-op campaign. The survey also asks if you'd be interested in buying the game if came out next year. Well, are you?
