Ken Levine confirms Bioshock Infinite won’t have a multiplayer mode

There was a rumour earlier that Bioshock Infinite multiplayer modes were cancelled, but now we have a solid confirmation.

Ken Levine, boss of Irrational Games, revealed on Twitter that there won’t be any multiplayer mode for Bioshock Infinite and they won’t change that decision. Now for a modern videogame, such a decision can cost a lot considering how people value games that deliver a lot of content. However, the franchise is mostly known for having a solid single player component, so they should be fine.

The studio has been going through a tough time recently with key people leaving for other studios, but Irrational Games have hired a bunch of new people like former Gears of War executive producer Rod Ferugsson, and hopefully they can finish the game on time for a 2013 release.

The game was unveiled in 2010 and went on to win plenty of awards and became a critic favourite at game shows like E3 and Gamescom.

Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood.

Here’s the confirmation from Levine about the game having no multiplayer mode.
