The rumours of a multiplayer Silent Hill title for Xbox Live Arcade are not true according to Downpour producer Devin Shatsky.
The rumour was scraped from an interview with SH: Downpour art director Radek Marek. Shatsky has said though that “whoever that Italian interviewer was either took Radeks comments completely out of context, or it was lost in translation. As previously mentioned, we were (many moons ago) investigating a separate Multiplayer mode, but that was quickly extinguished when we costed it out and determined how much resource time it would detract from the core singleplayer experience.”
A multiplayer SH certainly sounds intriguing, though I’m not too sure how it would work exactly. Maybe it’s for the best that this rumour won’t be coming true.
Thanks to Hell Descent for the info.
