Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Won’t Have A Companion App

Ubisoft has confirmed they will not be developing a companion app for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Ubisoft has ditched any and all plans for a companion app in order to “focus all their efforts on the core experience.” This announcement will likely please fans of the series, given criticisms over the companion app for their previous title Assassin’s Creed Unity. Locking extra content like costumes and treasures within the app left were just one of the issues leaving many unhappy with the experience.

This comes along with the decision not to include multiplayer and support for previous generation consoles, the former being a first since Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and the latter being a first for the series. The lack of multiplayer comes as more of a surprise given Syndicate features two protagonists. Nonetheless, Ubisoft has made it clear they intend to learn from the problems Unity faced. Hopefully this means we won’t see any faceless people or end up dropping below the ground…

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be released on October 23 this year for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
