No Vampire Multiplayer

Again digging into the new PC Gamer magazine as a source, HomeLAN Fed reports the latest issue of the print mag has a confirmation that Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines, Troika's upcoming Source-engine vampire game, will not feature multiplayer support. Let's say it together... that sucks.

47. Multi, eh? Oct 12, 2004, 05:29 .Drifter
What kind of multi did you want?
Co-op, so you could play the game with friends?
Frag fest, so you could go around busting a cap in each other's vampire butt?
Freeform, where you had a DM who made the map, the story, and everyone played their character out?

From what I'm reading, ALL of the above were wanted.
Now honestly, do you think any company without a huge budget would be able to do all of these, and do them right, along with a single player game? Not gonna happen.
And as for multiplayer in general, with this game, I seriously doubt anyone would buy it for multi alone, regardless of the type it had. As something to do when the singleplayer was done, maybe. But then again, what if the multi wasn't what you were looking for, then what? Complain the multiplayer they included wasn't the kind you wanted?
