Ubisoft has confirmed that the split-screen function of their upcoming game For Honor has been removed. The game’s online co-op mode is specifically affected.
“We decided this week to cut the split-screen… It was a feature that we loved, but when we looked at what needs to be done to support online co-op, for us it was critical to make the decision now so we can polish all the features at the Triple-A level and make sure that we have the most amazing experience,” explains producer Stephane Cardin in an interview with IGN.
The game’s creative director, Jason VandenBerghe, told Gamespot during last year’s E3 conference that For Honor’s split-screen function is an important feature for the game.
“Because this is a game about fighting with weapons, split-screen is absolutely a key feature for us. You want to sit on the couch and beat up your buddy, right? That’s the thing.”
Whether the split-screen function will be entirely removed from the game, or just for its online co-op mode, is yet to be confirmed by Ubisoft.
