PS4 Exclusive Drawn to Death Won’t Launch with Split-Screen, but David Jaffe Feels that it’s Needed

on June 4, 2015 4:42 PM

With the raise of online multiplayer, local split-screen multiplayer seems to be going the way of the dodo for most developers, but David Jaffe and the development team between Drawn to Death feel that it’s really needed for their game, even if it won’t be there at launch due to implementation challenges.

I do not think we will be launching with split screen however as- believe it or not- it’s not a simple, fast addition (at least not for a small team like us). BUT it’s something we really, really, REALLY feel needs to be in there. Online is fantastic in its own right but yes, nothing like playing with someone on the same couch- those are some of the VERY BEST MP experiences of my gaming life.

As an additional bonus, Jaffe revealed today some rather lovely art showcasing a costume for Johnny Savage, which you can see below. Doesn’t it look quite familiar?

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
