I've been reading stories about the decline of single player games. I, for one, enjoys single player games and rarely bothers with the multiplayer.
Games like Titanfall and Star Wars Battlefront were heavily criticized for not having single player content until they are added in the sequel.
Then, there are games that needed an online connection to be playable even though some single player content can be played offline. In Need for Speed Rivals and The Division, you can't pause the game because you are always online when you are playing solo.
Now, while there have been some great single player games recently, I can't help shake the feeling that they are being overshadowed by multiplayer focused games such as Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege, but you don't hear anybody complaining about them not having single player content or being online only.
About a month ago, EA shut down Visceral Games canceling plans for a single player Star Wars game.
Companies like Bethesda have shown that they committed to single player games. Again, there are some great single player games out there. Wolfenstein 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Doom 2016 being a few examples, and I hope other companies pay close attention to this.
So, should we expect a decline of single player games in the near future?
