Yes, don't have any entirely optional features, that's the way forward!
A focused single player game, is MILES better than a single player game with co-op just shoehorned in. And if the co-op isn't just shoehorned in but is a large part of the experience, then you'll be risking alienating the huge amount of fans of the single player original (ala the aforementioned Resi 5 and LP2).
Besides the fact that the isolation of Arkham Asylum worked so well because you were alone. Throwing resources at a co-op mode is such a shitty idea.
But then as long as you get "options", eh?
