There will be no beta for Assassin’s Creed 3′s multiplayer Ubisoft has revealed.
Both Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Revelations saw multiplayer betas leading up to their respective launches but the long-awaited third chapter of the series will not follow suit.
According to the game’s multiplayer director Damien Kieken, a beta was considered but due to time constraints it was “favourable” to focus on the final game.
“Doing a beta takes a lot of time; we’d need to polish a version, submit it to the platform holders and support it when it’s out,” said Kieken.
“And all the time put into the beta doesn’t go into the final game. Because we wanted to push so many things into the game, we took the hard decision to favor the final game content instead of doing a beta and we believe it will be favorable in the end.”
“To be honest, it’s something we want to do every year because we get community feedback that helps us tune the game. It is also a good reward for the community that has followed us from the beginning. “
Kieken also reveals that the team at Ubisoft Annecy has been working on Assassin’s Creed 3′s multiplayer since wrapping up work on 2011′s Revelations.
Extra support has been brought in with Ubisoft Bucharest helping out with feature development and map building and Ubisoft Shanghai working on some of the multiplayer characters.
