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.

Capcom Confirms More Resident Evil Remakes Are Coming

After the success of the Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4 remakes, Capcom has confirmed plans to continue the trend, although stopped short of announcing which Resident Evil game is next in line for the remake treatment.

Right or go crazy and bring back there old street fighter titles

But na remake old RE games that somehow 20yrs later get awards for being the best game of that year like sure....

@just_looken: they're completely redesigned from the ground up. RE2 and 3 even moreso. It's completely valid that RE4 could win GOTY. Thats like saying MW3 2023 shouldn't have a chance to win GOTY (if it were actually good) simply because it shares a name and concept with an older release. Very silly logic tbh

Code Veronica is a must

RE5 but I want it like the original 4.5 ideas, if they must have co-op then I want it drop in drop out so single player gamers can enjoy the game with the solo survival horror themes in tact.

The original ideas had things like heatstroke if you stayed in the sun too long and also if you stayed inside for long period and enter to the outside too quickly your vision would be blurred to refocus in the bright sun.

Resident Evil Survivor psvr 2?

na that means psvr 2 would not be a paper weight and even get fresh ideas/new games nvm

I know I'm the only one that wants it, but can we get a Remake of 1 in First Person? OKTHANKSBYE!

Maybe make it an option like Village. Jill and Chris are too iconic to be left in 1st person.

SimpleSlave11h ago

3rd person is simply inferior and obtrusive but I'm OK with Options. What I don't want is have to buy a VR headset to experience these and other games, like Hitman, in First Person mode.

To each their own but at least give us the option without having to pay extra is all I'm saying.

I hope they make a new IP. It's boring that only remakes are being made.
