Could Bioshock Infinite Remodel Today’s Multiplayer?

Matt Randisi writes, " It seems silly that the general state of online multiplayer nowadays is presumably known by gamers and developers alike, yet it has taken this long for someone to make mention of it; especially in reference to motivation for shaking things up. Bioshock creator Ken Levine has stated, "We are never interested in making a multiplayer mode you could just play in some other game, because A) that's not creatively interesting and B) financially, you're wasting your time. They're going to go play Halo. They're going to go play Call of Duty.” Why is this pertinent at this time?

It could . . . . but it won't.

even if the multiplayer mode is unique, different or interesting it just wont be a selling point for me when it comes to this game. when i think bioshock i dont think multiplayer. i think rich story, engaging characters, unique setting and diverse weaponry. whether a multiplayer mode is included or not, i wont be playing it. im whole heartedly interested in the single player and so far it looks stunning.

No, because hopefully it won't have it. Give me a strong narrative and solid game play over multiplayer any day. I am so sick of every company thinking it needs online play. There are only a small number of games which have strong justifiable MP and they can all be counted on one hand.

nope,because this franchise does not need any type of mp

Would trying to add a MP with a unique style hurt the game? No. Though it may not do anything to draw attention away. Bioshock single player is one of the best i've played in a FPS.
