In an interview with Game Informer, Monolith Soft head Tetsuya Takahashi said the studio isn’t looking to create a massively-multiplayer online game any time soon. The studio’s latest title,
Xenoblade Chronicles X, has online multiplayer features that made some fans wonder if Monolith Soft was gearing up to make a full-fledged MMO as their next project.
“I feel that, although I really like MMOs, I think that’s a completely different kind of beast in terms of developing one of those. So that’s not something we’re really thinking about at the moment. We still are always thinking about multiplayer for future projects, because we feel like having multiplayer in a really big world tends to work out really well.” —
