Ubisoft Recruiting for Triple-A Wii U Online Game

What could it be?
We already know Ubisoft is one of the many third-party Wii U developers — it announced Killer Freaks From Outer Space at E3 2011 after all. The company's throwing more weight behind the platform though, now recruiting for a "AAA Wii U game" at its Quebec studio.
Two positions are available: senior engine programmer and, more interestingly, network programmer. The latter is described as:
The network programmer develops solutions for players and friends to connect and play together in real-time on a local network or the Internet. He works with designers and other game developers to help them innovate and exploit opportunities offered by the network. He works to ensure the best game experience possible for a group of players in separate locations.
Ubisoft Quebec isn't quite as famous as its Montreal and Paris brethren, thought it collaborated with Montreal on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed: Revelations and developed 2010's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands on Wii.
Assassin's Creed was announced for Wii U at E3; could Ubi Quebec be working on its multiplayer aspect?
