BioShock Infinite will not include a multiplayer portion, series creator Ken Levine has confirmed.
"No multi", he wrote.
Irrational had been working on a Spec Ops mode, which allowed four players to blast through levels from the single-player campaign. A tower defense-style mode was also cut. It had shrunken players battling enemy toys in a steampunk arcade machine.
Work on a multiplayer offering - which by job postings was seemingly only embarked upon this year - may have caused the game's delay into early 2013. The original BioShock eschewed multiplayer, a decision reversed for sequel BioShock 2 which lacked Levine's involvement.
