Worms: A Space Oddity No Longer Online

Posted by Damien McFerran

Team 17 makes a massive u-turn regarding multiplayer options for its forthcoming Wii title

Even though the company previously announced that the upcoming Wii game Worms: A Space Oddity would feature online play, developer Team 17 has now retracted the statement and has confirmed that the game will not make use of Nintendo’s WiFi connection for multiplayer-related shenanigans.

Publisher THQ had this to say about the announcement:

Worms: A Space Oddity is a social gaming experience that is best enjoyed locally, in a party-game atmosphere with other players.

So basically online play was removed because the devleopers were concerned that you’re not seeing enough of your friends.

As much as I love the Worms franchise this is dissapointing! They managed it for open warfare 2 on the DS, this feels like a step backwards! :-(

btw when does Team 17 ever make a new game? They're worse with capcom pimping out Street Fighter and its 200 versions.
