Wolfenstein: The New Order – Begründung für fehlenden Multiplayer

Wolfenstein: The New Order wird am 23. Mai 2014 für die PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox 360, XBox One und den PC in den Handel kommen. Zeit genug um weitere Details der Öffentlichkeit bereitzustellen. So wird der Shooter laut Publisher Bethesda keinen Multiplayer bieten, da dieser schlichtweg als überflüssig angesehen wird. Natürlich haben wir den Auszug aus dem Original-Interview für euch:

We believe in defining the game experience you want to deliver, and if multiplayer is a part of that then you should do that. It’s no different than any other feature: it has to be part of what it is that you want to make. In the case of MachineGames their background is not in multiplayer stuff. They make cool, interesting and compelling singleplayer experiences, much like the Arkane guys with Dishonored or anything Bethesda Game Studios has made.“

The first really multiplayer experience from Bethesda is the upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online, which takes its medieval fantasy role-playing game universe and transforms it into a multiplayer game for the PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One platforms.

Hines further emphasized that adding a new mode to a game, like multiplayer, ends up affecting both the single-player campaign and the studio as a whole due financial problems.

„We’ve obviously had a lot of success doing singleplayer games, and as a result we may just have a different view, but we don’t think adding a feature just for the feature’s sake is the right approach. You spend a lot of time doing that and it’s not free: you have to hire the people to do that, you have to spend all that time polishing, and that time could be spent continuously improving a singleplayer experience. That’s always been our approach and I don’t see that changing.
