Not long ago Ubisoft said that For Honor would support split-screen when it launches next year. Well that was short lived. Split-screen has been removed from the product so developers can focus on polishing the online multiplayer experience according to Stephane Cardin who is producing For Honor. Cardin says it was a difficult decision to make but feels as though its removal will allow the studio to make the game the best it can be.
Of course while this doesn’t seem like a big deal considering many games have gone away from split screen co-op, the fact that it is something that was announced and now being removed is what will bother some. We all know given Ubisoft’s track record that if they are saying split screen is what is needed removed to make the game better then reality is they’re already trying to justify the inevitable delays that will follow.
