Dealspwn: We chatted to Sandbox Strategies' Bill Linn at Gamescom this year, who confirmed to us that the upcoming title from Hard Iron - Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse - will not feature online multiplayer, instead offering up two-player co-op and four-player local competitive MP only.
"No, there won't be [online multiplayer]," he told us during the Family Guy presentation at Activision's Gamescom 2012 booth. "There is local [multiplayer], and four-player local at that. But it was one of those decisions that was made early on. It's kind of a game where you end up griefing a lot, and you saw in the demo that you can do friendly fire, so if that happens, I kinda just want to reach over and punch you. I don't want to be yelling into a headset, that's no fun. It's a game that perfect for enjoying with a friend on the couch."
