A quick Google search revealed that developers said that subtitle was removed due to new game engine and multiple people talking at same time but I think that they're pretty weak excuses as you could easily program game to only display subtitle during cutscenes & important moments.
Do you feel that lack of subtitle in Assassin's Creed does hinder your gameplay experience too?
