A single player WW game a la the Batman series sounds like it could be fun. A WW GaaS just sounds like a recipe for failure.
From our point of view, yes, but what do the Steam numbers say?
- Marvel's Avengers: 31,165 player peak (66.12% positive reviews)
- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: 10,989 player peak (92.58% positive reviews)
^ So, in spite of a much warmer reception (GotG is awesome!), the single player game only achieved just over 30% of the all-time player peak of the live service game.
As for the Batman games:
- Arkham Asylum GOTY: 6,739 peak
- Arkham City GOTY: 6,871 peak (7,162 for the legacy version)
- Arkham Origins: 25,017 peak
- Arkham Knight: 27,406 peak
^ Respectable numbers with regard to the last two entries but still none of them reached Avengers.
Whether we like it or not (I sure as fuck don't), Warner Bros is way more likely to give us more Avengers instead of GotG or Arkham.
