Far Cry: Primal, unlike previous games in the series, won't come with a multiplayer component, a decision that was made by the development team in the game's early stages. According to community manager Jason Paradise, the team took the difficult choice to focus their efforts on the single-player experience in order to deliver "a strong gameplay experience".
"Bringing the Stone Age to life and providing players with a strong gameplay experience based off of the Far Cry legacy meant we had to reinvent our core gameplay loop," Paradise wrote on the Steam Forums. "This was definitely not a small undertaking.
"Our focus was on delivering this fantasy which required clear priorities for the team. Therefore, in the early stages of the project, we made the difficult choice of focusing our efforts on the single-player experience."
Far Cry Primal releases on the 23rd of February on PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version coming on the 1st of March.
