BioShock Infinite will not have a multiplayer mode, Irrational Games boss Ken Levine has confirmed.
Answering queries on Twitter, Levine issued a clear “no multi”.
No multiplayer mode had ever been officially announced for Irrational’s new shooter, but as multiplayer is often seen as essential to a triple-A release, and BioShock 2 featured several modes, rumors of an online component seem quite credible.
In May, whispers said BioShock Infinite’s delay out of 2012 to February 2013 was related to ongoing issues with networking for its multiplayer modes. By August, it was said that multiplayer had been shelved completely.
BioShock Infinite is expected on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Personally, I'm glad to hear it. I don't see why it would need one.
