World War Z developer Saber Interactive has revealed that the company has offered its contribution in order to build a multiplayer mode for Days Gone.
Sony has unfortunately declined the offer, since the game had already been developed at the time as a single-player experience.
“Days Gone, it’s a single-player experience. At some point I went to Sony and said, ‘I’ve seen what you’re doing with Days Gone. Look what we’re doing with World War Z. Maybe we can help you with a multiplayer component,'” CEO Matt Karch told VentureBeat.
“But they were obviously too focused, and understandably, on what they needed to do to get that game out.”
“We were already under development when we heard about it. Of course we took a deep sigh, when you know Sony is going to be putting major marketing dollars behind a title that’s highlighting the swarms the way they were. It took a little wind out of our sails,” he said.
“But since then they’ve focused less on those swarm elements and more, I think, on the story aspect of their game. I don’t know if we’re in the clear, is the way to put it, but there’s a market for both games, what we’re both doing.”
We know many of you might be disappointed at hearing a news like this, as a multiplayer mode coming from such a well known developer would’ve been a great addition to the title.
Anyway, I honestly prefer the game being a single-player only experience, as offering games in this form most of the times grants you to have a more focused and well crafted story. What’s your point of view on this topic?
