Assassins Creed 3 to Have COOP?

Assassins Creed 3 may let you have fun taking down enemies using your tomahawk with a friend. According to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace description for the game, AC3 will feature online COOP. Unfortunately, the description has been pulled, which may indicate that the game may not actually have COOP.

The whole COOP idea seems promising. I doubt it would be for the actual single player campaign, but perhaps it would be it’s own side mission similar to Splinter Cell Conviction’s COOP story. Or, as IGN suggests, maybe it will be a “standalone experience, like the Free Roam mode in Red Dead Redemption.” At this point the whole idea is up in the air, and again the part that mentioned COOP was taken down.
