No multiplayer for Wolfenstein: The New Order
Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines has explained today that Wolfenstein: The New Order will not include multiplayer. The reason behind this choice is that this aspect wasn’t in the plans of developer MachineGames, and Bethesda simply does not want to force them.
You can read the full statement below:
“We talked to MachineGames about the game they wanted to make and multiplayer wasn’t in their thought process. We’re not going to force it down their throats and say, ‘Well, the last games did, so you have to do it.’ These guys do cool stuff. If you look at The Chronicles of Riddick or you look at The Darkness, those games have a creative element to them that is similar to the things they’re doing in Wolfenstein and that’s what attracted us to them, and that’s what attracted us to their vision of Wolfenstein. And we said ‘Okay, run with that.’ We’re not going to say, ‘Oh, we’ll find somebody else to do the multiplayer”.
The game will be out on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One near the end of the year.
