First Star Wars SWTOR, then Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, now Shadow Realms. I'm not saying online multiplayer is bad, but Bioware was always known for it's single player RPG experiences, not this.

I'd expect EA is just forcing them.

Ea forces all games to be made with multiplayer. The ceo said so himself.

Because an online element provides an incentive not to resell the game 15 seconds after you beat it.
Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

EA wants to compete against everything..

They were so desperate to cash in from the MOBA craze that they bought the guys who made Dawngate. Now suddenty EA has a Dota and LoL competitor even though they had nothing to do with its development. Dawngate isn't even a bad MOBA. But you can bet Electronic Arts™; will ruin it eventually somehow.

It provides an incentive, then you realize it's yet another tacked on multiplayer for the sake of multiplayer, then sell it anyway.

EA games are some of the highest traded in games of any publisher on the market.

Just because bioware was known for good single player RPG's does not mean they will forever make single player RPG's. Companies are always changing for good or bad. People are moving on from the company, new people coming in, things change.

Bioware is owned by EA which is one of the biggest gaming companies. Multiplayer is popular and EA does have a lot of multiplayer games and no doubt wants more.

Despite that, its not like bioware is not making RPG's anymore. As far as I know Dragon Age Inquistiton looks like a great single player RPG.

Mass Effect multiplayer was great and I do look forward to the next installment. As long as they don't take the game 100% TPS shooter like Gears of War, I'll be happy.
