Speaking in an interview with IGN, Yerli - who recently claimed the Crysis 3 studio will transition entirely to free-to-play development - suggested that not all of its future browser-based offerings will be competitive online titles such as Warface.

"I think the notion of a single-player experience has to go away," he said. "However, I'm not saying that there will be no single-player experiences ... it could be it's called Connected Single-Player or Online Single-Player instead.

"Online and social can reignite single-player in a new type of context and provide benefits that will make you want to be a part of a connected story-mode rather than a disconnected story-mode.

"Sure, if the technology forces you to play a traditional single-player game online, that doesn't make sense but if it's offering actual benefits to be online then you want to be part of it."


Yeah...no.

Which is strange, because, and correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't the reason most people buy Crysis games the single player campaign?

I've always seen the MP as a cheap cash grab for the CoD crowd, but it's not very well implemented and so people never really get into it.

That would make me quit gaming, and im pretty sure i wouldnt be the only one.

Seriously, what needs to go away is developers trying to force me into some social networking crap. Make it an option, not the focus.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

This is the effect of not understanding why a studio that is now only focusing on online play would want less focus on single player. Reading is fun, take your hatred and spite and bugger off.
