Speaking in this TeamXbox interview, Swedish developer GRIN’s confirmed that Capcom’s Bionic Commando will have 10-way multiplayer, the lesser number hopefully keeping the servers “happy”.
“Ten is our target,” said a spokesperson. “The reason being is that I’ve done a lot of multiplayer games with 32 players, but the servers rarely seem happy. So, we were going for a game that runs optimally with twelve players, but now it looks like ten will be the sweet spot.”
