GamesRadar - "I think that model is finished," Electronic Arts Games chief Frank Gibeau told Develop two-years back. He was discussing what he called "fire-and-forget, packaged goods only" or, as they're commonly known as, single-player games. He said that developers needed to continue the connection with players, and that a good method was through some sort of multiplayer component. In one interview, one of the leaders of the second biggest game publisher had signed a death warrant for single-player gaming. People were understandably upset, thinking that the era of single-player was over.
