Assassin's Creed Multiplayer Beta Planned

BOOM widget 100372 With the fall's stand-alone Assassin's Creed II follow-up Assassin's Creed Brotherhood set to bring multiplayer and a new single-player campaign to the murder-centric series, maker Ubisoft has confirmed that it will be holding a multiplayer beta before the game's release.

"We will have a beta test," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillmot told investors and Joystiq today during a conference call. Guillemot added that the company has not announced beta platforms or "exactly the date yet."

Ubisoft has been on a bit of public multiplayer beta kick as of late, with a recent public multiplayer test for R.U.S.E. PC under its belt and a multiplayer beta for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier due this summer for owners of Splinter Cell: Conviction on Xbox 360.

The product of numerous internal Ubisoft studios, including Assassin's Creed II developer Ubisoft Montreal and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory multiplayer veterans Ubisoft Annecy, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
