While huge franchises like 'Call of Duty' and 'Battlefield' are embracing the popular trend - sparked by the success of games multiplayer games like 'Fortnite' - it appears not everyone is wanting to include it in future titles.

During a rapid-fire interview with Game Informer, the title's director Scott Phillips was asked if there were any discussions about including such a mode in 'Odyssey' - and he insisted there have been no meetings about it.

Although he didn't elaborate on that any further, he did make it clear that the upcoming game won't include any multiplayer mode at all.

Although 2010's 'Assasin's Creed: Brotherhood' introduce head-to-head multiplayer, the series has moved away from this - and Phillips explained the development team were ocused on making the best possible game.

He said: "Splitting that focus for our team and the amount of time we had to make the game was, for me, not the right call.

"Delivering this giant open-world RPG is the way to do it and I think that's what Assassin's Creed should be."
