Sierra has confirmed that the multiplayer and co-operative sections of the upcoming multiplatform Prototype has been cut.

In previous interviews, Radical Entertainment's Tim Benson strongly hinted that co-op would feature in the finished game and promised that multiplayer would be "on the table from the start".

Now though, Sierra has confirmed that the multiplayer has been scrapped so that more focus can be put on the singleplayer side of things. Co-op too has fallen by the way-side, most likely so that the game can still make the Q3 2008 release date.

Prototype will be the first game in a planned series of parkour-influenced games, combining free-running play-styles with free-roaming gameplay.

The game is plotted around an amensiac, shape-shifting man who players control in his search for his identity. You know, that whole schtick.

Do you consider multiplayer to be an important part of games nowadays, or would you prefer to have a game with an established singleplayer? Let us know in the forums.
