According to the LinkedIn profile of the game's associate producer, Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed Victory will contain "innovative asynchronous gameplay". That's presumably a fancy way of saying that the game will contain multiplayer in which two or more players have a markedly different experience.
