BioShock Infinite to be a solitary affair

If you were looking forward to a bit of multiplayer action in BioShock Infinite, it seems that you’re in the minority – and you’re going to miss out. Irrational Games bossman Ken Levine has revealed that the upcoming release simply will not feature any opportunities to play with your mates.

This is a return to form – the original BioShock did not include multiplayer at all. That all changed for BioShock 2, which featured seven multiplayer modes, from king of the hill to deathmatch.

Rather than bucking the trend, BioShock Infinite is the latest in a growing list of games that has discarded multiplayer elements, alongside Metro: Last Light and Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. This suggests a change in attitude from both developers and gamers, who have commented for years that – for many games – multiplayer is a last-minute, tacked-on addition which can drag the overall title down with it.
