Arkham City will not have multiplayer

Written by David Stellmack


It is certain to be a single player experience
A number of rumors and idle chit chat have been filling the web as of late that the upcoming Rocksteady title, Batman: Arkham City, would offer a multiplayer experience; and there is fake video evidence floating around so that it is easy to see how people might conclude that it is going to happen.

After checking with our sources, we can confirm that Batman: Arkham City will be a single player only experience and isn’t going to include any type of multiplayer support. We have learned that this has also been confirmed by Srfton Hill of Rocksteady in a recent IGN interview. There just was no time to add the type of a multiplayer experience the way that they wanted to present it this time around.

Arkham City is in the final phase of development, is currently on track, and should make its release date of October 3rd. When released, Arkham City will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.

Check out the IGN Interview here with some great stuff on the upcoming game.

Not too disappointing. There are plenty of multiplayer games these days.

Idd, why forcing a MP part in a solo game.

Quoting 123s:

Because apparently everything needs it these days.


I can't even think of a good way for it to work in this game. lol

Capture the catwoman !


Its not impossible to make halfway decent MP but why wasting times and resources and that just to have one like other games try.

Yeah, and I think it would feel tacked-on and unnecessary either way. The first game was fine without it, and I don't think that too many fans of AA want MP anyway. This is just one of those epic single-player games, and we need more games like this these days.

True, true, it even had decent single player time They take their time here, dont push for release and dont add stuff like MP just for marketing, i am pretty optimistic that it´ll be great again...and i dont even like the comics.

Glad to hear that a developer does not succumb to greed. Crytek recently stated that you're games need to have multiplayer to sell... to sell.. not be good. Example Dead Space 2 added multiplayer which came as a surprise to me because now it's ruined my impression of that franchise, and since playing the multiplayer its mediocre. Plus the single player side wasn't nearly as good the first game nor scary. Prolly because they were spending resources to make the multiplayer no matter how easy that task may be, they still invested into it.
