The Order: 1886 won't feature a multiplayer mode

PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 will be a single-player only release with no additional multiplayer mode, Ready At Dawn co-founder Ru Weerasuriya confirmed to German games website Play3.

Weerasuriya describes the largely under-wraps title as a "third-person single player action game" that could potentially release on PlayStation 3 systems in the future.

"We currently work exclusively on the PS4 version," said the studio co-founder. "Games are always designed for cross-platforms, but clearly, if there is a possibility to take over the physics system to other platforms, we would use this."

The Order: 1886 was first revealed by the studio during last year's E3, with little information offered beyond its initial teaser trailer. Weerasuriya told us the game had been in limbo prior to the release of PS4 kits as last generation hardware was not capable of achieving the ambitions the studio had for the title.

Weerasuriya acknowleged to us that the decision to bring the game only to PS4 will mean it will reach a smaller audience; However, he says, the studio's focus is more creative than financial.

"Yes, of course, there's an opportunity to make a dual-platform game and there are third-party publishers we can go to," he said, "and it's not something we'll ever dismiss, but for now since we've been so targeted towards working on a single platform it felt natural for us to make that decision regardless of the financial hit we would take."

The Order: 1886 is slated to hit in Q4 of this year.
