Batman: Arkham City will not feature an online multiplayer mode. In fact the game won't have any multiplayer or co-op modes and will only have a single-player experience. When designing the sequel to 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum Rocksteady Studios Game Director, Sefton Hill told IGN, "If we use all of the energy that is required to create multiplayer and instead focus this on the single player, would that deliver a better overall game?"

Batman: Arkham City is now reaching its final stages of development. Hill is positive that Batman: AC wouldn't be the game they hoped to create if they had divided their efforts between both a single player and multiplayer experience.  According to Hill, multiplayer is a common and often unnecessary add-on to games. It can also extend a game's lifespan and add to replayability. Hill hopes gamers will see they made the right choice once they beat Arkham City.

In my opinion some games like BioShock 2 and even Uncharted 2 didn't need a multiplayer mode to be a complete gaming experience. Batman: Arkham Asylum was a fantastic game that did well critically despite not offering multiplayer gameplay. Do you think not adding multiplayer will help or hurt Batman: AC? Are you as crushed as I am there won't be a Batman and Robin co-op mode?
