Eidos-Montréal on Single-player and Multiplayer Support

A new Vision Statement from Eidos-Montréal discusses the developer's embrace of online gameplay, quoting studio head David 'Prison Tat' Anfossi saying "we are placing an added emphasis on the online experiences in our games, striving to continually provide players with content that is memorable and impactful." They also hear from director of online technology Sébastien Bessette saying, "We’re also structuring the DAWN engine, our proprietary technology, to interface with modern online solutions, which gives us the ability to take advantage of existing technologies." This apparently prompted some strong reactions, as DSOGaming notes a tweet from Anfossi, who responds to concerns this means the Deus Ex and Tomb Raider developer is abandoning single-player games: "Nobody said we give up the narrative single player games; this is what we like to do. Where did you read that?! ;)" He also later reassures: "Stay tuned if you like strong action adventure games ;)"

You say "online experiences", I hear "continual revenue stream".

Indeed. And they will justify it by quoting expenses and return on said advances not being adequate, but a lot of that is their own silly expectations.
