Ubisoft explains why multiplayer naval battles won't be featured in ACIV
Assassin's Creed director says Ubisoft experimented with naval warfare multiplayer mode, but studio could not get it to "good enough level."
Ubisoft's upcoming action game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will not feature naval battles, though not for lack of trying.
Game director Ashraf Islamil explained to GameSpot that the studio attempted such a mode at the onset of development, but it never panned out.
"Naval multiplayer, unfortunately, we don't have it," Ismail said. "It's something we tried at the beginning, but we didn't feel we can get it to a good enough level for this iteration."
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag launches October 29 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. The PC version will follow at a later date, while the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 iterations will be launch titles for the next-generation machines.
