Rage 2 will not have any multiplayer modes


You're lone wolf-ing this one, kid

Speaking at an event at their Stockholm studio this week, Avalanche's Magnus Nedford, designer of punk-rock shooter Rage 2, revealed that the upcoming sequel will not feature multiplayer.

"We're just focused on the best open world single player game that we can make," said Nedford in a statement to Eurogamer. "I personally really believe you can make single player games really fantastic, so that's what we're focused on".

The news comes as a surprise given the co-op and competitive multiplayer of the previous game, as well as Rage's 2's loud marketing, which is filled with colourful characters and a nihilistic "party" atmosphere. I'm all for single-player experiences, given that I have no friends, but when I saw the initial trailers, I honestly thought that multiplayer would actually be the main focus of the bombastic title.

Rage 2 is headed to PS4, PC and Xbox One in Spring 2019. Our own Ray Porreca, the scamp, got some hands-on time with the game at E3, so look forward to his preview in a few short hours!
