The Christmas break has come to an end, and 2016 is here. That means that some big titles are heading our way, or if we are unlucky getting delayed.

One game heading to the PlayStation 4 is Horizon: Zero Dawn, which promises many things. One thing that it seems to be lacking through is a multiplayer option. In a recent interview with IGN Latin America Guerrilla Games’ Mark Norris, the executive producer for the game gave an explanation as to why this is the case:

“Certainly we see that pressure, with PlayStation as a brand and PlayStation Network and its huge number of users There are questions as to why a multiplayer will not do The reality is that we are working on a new IP. We are making a new franchise for the first time in ten years and what we really want to do is improve the experience for a player. “

Adding to this, he brings up the point that the main character is the focus of the game, the story is built around her so there is no need for a multiplayer option.

“When you get to face these machines as Eloy, with this great character who is the real star of the story and everything that happens, have this connection with her. But what happens when you take the elements of multiplayer, you play as Eloy? You play as a supporting character? How does that work? And of course, we played other games and we really liked that Witcher Geralt of Rivia 3, which is an iconic character and is fantastic … not have multiplayer.”

So the simple answer is, the multiplayer element of the game is not needed. As a fan of the single-player experience, I have no problems with that.

Do you think that not having a multiplayer option to Horizon: Zero Dawn could be a mistake? Let us know your thoughts below.
