Vanquish won't have multiplayer


In one of the coolest moves within the last two years, a developer has decided not to slap an MP component into its shooter. In a recent conversation with Eurogamer at a Tokyo event, Platinum Games' Shinji Mikami confirmed that Vanquish would not have a competitive online component for fear of stripping down the title.

"Vanquish is very intense, full of action. There are just so many things going on," Mikami told Eurogamer. "When you take that into a multiplayer environment, then you have to realistically consider shaving a lot of things off and putting them into your multiplayer environment." He added that it's all about balance. Platinum plans to go for details and visuals and don't want to bother with keeping MP on that level.
