Coop Wouldn't Work In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Why don't we have coop in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood you ask? Well Jean-Francois Boivin, associate producer on the game has said the complexity of the game's storyline prevents it from working:
“You have to come back to the universe of Assassin’s Creed and what Assassin’s Creed is, because Assassin’s Creed is the story of Desmond Miles and a machine called the Animus in which he relives his ancestors’ genetic memories."

“So to justify something like co-op, you would have to have in our universe with Desmond, the assassin and the Templars… you’d have to find subjects that had ancestors in the same time period, as for example in this case Ezio, in the same area and have a separate Animus."

“Once again, you have to be smart about it – it’s a very complex universe. It’s very easy to find logic holes, and once you do, you become cheap. And we’re not cheap, we want to stay true to the complexity of the universe, and I think that’s what makes Assassin’s Creed a very fine game and a very unique game, the overarching storyline of it."
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is set to release on November 16th in the US and November 19th in the UK.
