Batman: Arkham Knight will not have a multiplayer component

Rocksteady has confirmed that no multiplayer mode will be present in Batman: Arkham Knight. 

Even though last year’s disappointing Batman: Arkham Origins had a versus multiplayer component handled by Brink developer Splash Damage to go along with Warner Bros. Montreal’s sad attempt at a prequel, Arkham Knight game director Sefton Hill has already gone on record saying that won’t be the case with this game.

“[Arkham Knight] is a single player game. There is no multiplayer. Right at the start this was our vision.  It’s going to take all of our effort for all of this time. We don’t have the time to do multiplayer,” Hill told Game Informer (via VideoGamer).

“We want to focus on making the best single player experience we can. We don’t feel that it needs a multiplayer element. Warner Bros. backed that up right at the start.”

I don’t know about the rest of you Bat-fans out there, but I, for one, am thrilled by this announcement, as the multiplayer in Origins felt tacked on and completely unnecessary. Thank goodness the franchise is back in Rocksteady’s trusted hands.

Batman: Arkham Knight is due out sometime later this year for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
