So the hyping of these super titles begins.

They won't be saying this if MW2 or CoD 4 didn't come out.

Hm, I love Crytek games but sometimes they say the dumbest shit ever.

This is coming from a dev that has made SP games for the good part of their existence. I honestly hope they don't make a shoddy and gimped SP campaign in favor of tacked on multiplayer, just what we need is another crap MP game right? /s

Long Live Singleplayer!!

MintBerryCrunch2519d ago

they say this now, but i bet that the MP will be gimped and the SP will be much more interesting since people found the first game could have done a better job at making a more fleshed out SP campaign

Don't they have Crytek UK working on the multiplayer aspect of Crysis 2?

Crytek UK previously known as Free Radical.. I'm sure they can handle multiplayer.

Crytek hired Free Radical to make Crysis 2's multiplayer. Free Radical spent the good part of their existence making multiplayer games. So don't worry.

"Free Radical spent the good part of their existence making multiplayer games."

Yeah, but they also made Haze. lol

Jonoc332517d ago

good point, but everyone makes mistakes, right?

guigsy2519d ago

Most FPS games need MP to keep people playing, especially when the campaign is like 8 hours long. Games like Half-life are an exception to the rule.

DeadlyFire2518d ago

If you think about it though HL provided MP gamers with an option to mod their game and Counter-Strike was born. Game mods keep people playing. MP is nice too, but if gamers can't mod their game, make their own levels, models, tweaks, modifications, and express themselves in a creative way. Then there is no self expression or freedom to Multiplayer and enjoymeant of a boxed in game engine is limited and often makes gamers just jump to another more interesting game when they find it and forget all about that other game.

I hope that doesnt mean the Sp sucks. I dont think it will suck but you never know until the game actually comes out.

Quagmire2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

Is there any FPS game this gen which doesnt have a MP?

Solidus187-SCMilk2519d ago

maybe some other game too, cant think of another.

Vorgier2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

Multiplayer in Bioshock Infinite COULD work since its being made by the original developers.

I liked B2 multiplayer a lot, but it could have been so much better. Same goes with the SP.

They could do that in BInf and still focus strongly on the SP.

Or do like most do. End up skimping on the SP because there is MP to worry about.

SnakeMustDie2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

I hope they maintain a balance between SP and MP. I don't want to pay for a game with a great multi but shitty SP.
