The Order: 1886 Will Be a Single Player Only Affair, Says Ready at Dawn

One is the loneliest number
As we reported yesterday, there's been a wealth of rumours floating around the Internet in regards to upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886. There is definitely something brewing over at developer Ready at Dawn, and we suspect that there'll be a truckload more details to pore over in the coming weeks.
With that said, we're hoping that the title's four characters weren't leading you to believe that it would boast a Left 4 Dead-esque co-op multiplayer mode, as studio co-founder Andreas Pessino has confirmed on Twitter that such a feature does not exist, stating: "No multiplayer, it is a single player, third-person action adventure game."
When asked for a reason for this absence, the executive stressed that the team's main focus was to create a strong single player experience. "Better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed," he continued. "We are trying to make a single player experience that you will enjoy." It seems that you'll be protecting the monarchy all on your lonesome, then. Do you think that the lack of multiplayer is a missed opportunity, or do you prefer to play alone?
