EA’s Gibeau clarifies “not greenlighting single-player games” comment

Now where's my Mirror's Edge 2, EA?

Posted By | On 07th, Sep. 2012

EA’s Frank Gibeau set the Internet on fire recently when he said he hasn’t greenlighted single-player only games. “I have not green lit one game to be developed as a singleplayer experience. Today, all of our games include online applications and digital services that make them live 24/7/365,” he said few days ago.

He later clarified that comment with Kotaku. “You can have a very deep single-player game but it has to have an ongoing content plan for keeping customers engaged beyond what’s on the initial disc. I’m not saying deathmatch must come to Mirror’s Edge,” he said.

“What I’m saying is if you’re going do it, do it with an open-world game that’s a connected experience where you can actually see other players, you can co-operate, you can compete and it can be social. I’m not suggesting deathmatch must be in Bejeweled,” he added. “You need to have a connected social experience where you’re part of a large community.”
