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.
