Single player thrived with an action-packed campaign, but a lot of players saw its multiplayer as more of an afterthought - though some appreciated the feature.

Strong single-player games appeal to many gamers and they sell well even if they are linear and don't offer much replay value aside from varying difficulty settings.

Fans of the Wolfenstein series know well enough that the main focus of the series has always been the story.

"The only way we can create these super immersive narrative experiences is if we can exclusively focus on the single-player", said narrative designer Tommy Tordsson Björk in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz.

In the case of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, developers can devote all of their time to making sure that the story and gameplay are stellar in the campaign. The Nintendo Switch version will come out some time next year.
