Insomniac Games, who has made plenty of single player games in the past, announces they don't think they will ever make another single player only game in the future, with the upcoming Fuse being the start of their new philosophy.
In an interview with GameSpot, the CEO of the company, Ted Price, states the change in direction is due to social technology and the state of the industry which no longer is favorable to single player-only games.
He was careful to mention this doesn't meant Insomniac Games will only be making multiplayer only games since Fuse does contain a single player campaign. Instead they will switch the priority towards online multiplayer when developing new projects.
The decision itself might have also been influenced recently by EA who is the publisher for Fuse. EA stated they no longer will allow games to be released by them (developed or published) if they do not contain some form of online multiplayer.
