More and more, we’re seeing multiplayer being used as a selling point from publishers. After all, that’s one more reason why a gamer won’t trade-in their game after they finish it, and one way a developer can add in microtransactions. That’s why traditionally single player franchises have seen tacked on multiplayer modes. Typically this is met with eyerolling from the series’ fans since it just isn’t what they want the developer to be focusing on.
