Evidence suggest that BioShock Infinite was delayed to add a multiplayer mode. This evidence comes from recent job post details at 2K Studios.

Damn of course, that never even crossed my mind.
That could very well be the reason for the delay.

zeal0us2085d ago

Make me think about when ME3 was delayed. This is the future might as well get use to "everything needs multiplayer."

Sure it guarantees 0-20% more sales.

Crazyglues2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

What I don't understand is how could you only now be adding Multi-player... should this have been a decision decided early in development... "Just Saying"

I just hope it turns out to be good, because at this point it looks like it's just going to be rushed and tacked on to maximize sales as opposed to a well thought-out Multi-player mode.

Thats one of the first reasons I thought of. Hopefully they add a co-op horde mode as well that would be alot of fun.

Bioshock 2 was not made by the same people as 1 and infinite. Kevin levine and his crew did not want to make another one in rapture. Heres hoping for a badass online component.

Online haters eat your heart out!!

I wouldn't buy Bioshock:Infinite then...I'm tired of all this every rpg/shooter needs to have online features crap..

Bioshock 2 had multiplayer.

Nostalgia2085d ago

And it was horrible and had unnecessary written all over it.

Human Analog2085d ago

Bioshock 2 was not made by the same people.

vickers5002084d ago

So even if it wont actually affect the quality of the campaign, (just a delay) you are not going to buy it?

Why...I thought Ken knew how much the multiplayer sucked in Bioshock 2, unless it was someone else.

Well if not then he must know deep down it didn't make Bioshock 2 all that better.

I'm sure someone like Kev Levine would want to spend time polishing the single player game.

Ravenor2085d ago

Ken was quoted as saying they had an opportunity to add something "Extraordinary". Extraordinary doesn't sound like "We shoe horned MP in there!".

There is also always the option of avoiding the MP, it's what I did with Bioshock 2 and I'm pretty certain it didn't harm the SP portion any worse than the game itself.

Human Analog2085d ago

Ken and irrational had NOTHING to do with Bioshock 2

user54670072085d ago


It's still Bioshock and the multiplayer wouldn't be any differen't despite who is in charge

I mean how else are you supposed to do the multiplayer, it will still look and play like Bioshock 2s

Anyway I'm talking about how Ken must of saw the reaction towards the multiplayer...I never said he was in charge of it

SeekDev2085d ago

Different developers make different things. So if Ken and his team made Bioshock 2's multiplayer, I'm sure it would be very different, whether for better or for worse. But probably for better.

Cablephish2085d ago

Personally, I would rather have just SP.

I enjoyed Bioshock 1 & 2, but the MP on 2 I found to lack balance.

Oh dear Lord...
