There's no multiplayer in Wolfenstein 2, because it would "dilute" the story

wolfenstein 2 release date

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus won’t contain multiplayer, as it would “dilute” the game. Machine Games’ narrative designer Tommy Tordsson Bjork says the studio’s focus on single-player games will be pivotal to the game’s success.

Here's our Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus perks guide.

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz at Gamescom, Bjork says “the only way we can create these super immersive narrative experiences is if we can solely focus on the single-player. Having a multiplayer component in this work process would just dilute it all. That's the danger if you try to do two things at once. We just keep our heads together, and focus on making a really good single-player game... Doing our thing is what makes the game great."

Wolfenstein II will be the third Wolfenstein game Machine Games will have developed since 2014; Wolfenstein: The New Order was followed by The Old Blood, a prequel, in 2015. None of those three games contain any multiplayer elements.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus releases on Friday, October 27, and will feature Hitler himself - the former German leader features at the end of the game’s launch trailer.

Good! As more and more games shift focus to multiplayer in an effort to hawk microtransactions, it's nice to see games that still care about making a good single-player experience and story, which is why we wanted to buy the game in the first place.

I think it would've been a good idea if they added Co-OP survival mode where and your buddy or buddies fend off against hordes of Nazis, and then the longer you go the cooler things you get :P that would make the game playable for years even if done correctly... Even if it was a DLC.. ps if one of the dev's reading this please take it under advisement

This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I thought this was a company that knew how to make games, not some new shitty team that doesnt know how the hell to incorporate multiplayer. FFS they even put microtransactions IN THE SINGLE PLAYER. Now everyone that says ''good this means they wont have MT's'' congratulations you're dumb. Now we get MT's AND a single player experience as good as the single player experience is WITH MULTIPLAYER. Stop buying into all this ''we cant do it cause it'll hurt the story'' BULLSHIT. There have been amazing games over the years with BOTH. The only reason they have to not input it is because they don't fucking want to and you all play into it.
