GAMING QUESTION

Hi, i have this question to answer and i would love some opinions on this

 

1. A lot of traditionally single player game are increasingly adding online multiplayer modes, such as Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption II. Some games are removing single player modes or hugely cutting back on them, such as Star Wars Battlefront. Why do you think game developers are increasingly moving towards offering these online multiplayer modes?

 

thanks

This is because of one primary reason. Cheap easy content. Let me explain. To create a proper single player story game as most of the aforementioned games are, it requires a great deal of story writing, and  content creation, none of which is cheap. Meanwhile having multiplayer allows people to create their own enemies their own stories, and better understand the game by exploring it with the friends, family, or random people on the internet. And as time progresses more and more people have faster access to the internet and better servers release allowing this to become more of a practical reality. In the end it simply provides more reasons to play the game, increases the amount of content available for a minimal expense, and also serves as marketing as players invite their friends to play the games.

In search of the future, new tech, and exploring the universe! All under the cover of anonymity!

Because they like money. It's much easier to sell micro DLC in an online multiplayer mode than it is with single player.
