Florence Kum, Senior Producer at SCEE, has revealed that Starhawk will not feature a four player split screen. Instead, the studio have been concentrating on the two player mode, which will be “better”.
“We are very aware that some of you wanted 4-player split screen like Warhawk,” says the article. “We thought about it a lot and decided not to go this route.”
“Based on our data, not enough people ever used 4-player split in Warhawk, so we concentrated our efforts in other areas, such as making 2-player just plain better. For the few people that actually played 4-player split screen…we’re very sorry about that.”
“For everyone else, we think you’ll like the aspect ratio change and the bigger radar map.”
Dual log-in is in, though, which means two players playing locally will be able to join up and both sign into their PSN accounts.
