Starbreeze said that they'll avoid developing single player only games like Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to focus on replayable co-op multiplayer games.
A damn shame, I loved their single player games
I guess they already forgot about publishing that John Wick VR game a couple months ago.
its about money and investment so when somone finishes that single player game then what? a lot of people sell or trade them in and that does not help the publisher. by adding dlc and making it multiplayer the gamer is engaged longer.
Which is stupid that it has come to that. I treat my favorite games or games I really like just like movies and replay them just like I would rewatch my movies. There's no rule out there saying once you beat a game you can never play it again and it's ridiculous a lot of people feel that way nowadays. Hopefully this mp fad will die down eventually and we can get back to awesome sp games that people play over and over like the old days but till then what can we do
The problem is in both ends, you have those that like single player games and don't like online games that have co-op or multiplayer so they think those games shouldn't be $60 unless there is a single player campaign attached to it. Which is also a stupid argument. I enjoy both experiences but until they get rid of the used market I fear there will be a continuous trend towards online enabled games along with co-op and multiplayer types.
thats a real shame :( i bought it on both the 360 and xbox one because i enjoyed it so much personally :/ and loved it on both ... thought it was a very enjoyable and different to what has become the standard affair of games nowadays ... makes me sad they are throwing the potential for another type of game like that away because of whatever reason they have come up with :/
I didn't mind Brothers, but it didn't really hold my interest that well. Brothers did have a certain charm to it that I liked though. TBH, I want another Chronicles of Riddick. Starbreeze/Tigon did a great job with those games.
Wow that's really crap news
Why Co-op is overrated
What a disappointment. The Darkness series and Riddick were fantastic. I was hoping for a Darkness III. But then again, all the best talent left and formed MachineGames which then created the fantastic Wolfenstein: The New Order.
