Most will agree that we have been starved for some official Kingdom Hearts 3 news as of late from Square-Enix. We have spotted however, several pieces of evidence which suggest that Square-Enix may be exploring the possibility of Kingdom Hearts 3 multiplayer.
We remember hearing back in September of 2014 that The Osaka studio of Square-Enix were hiring a network programmer to work on their upcoming projects.
Now, we can see that the same studio are looking for even more staff related to an online component of an upcoming game. Kingdom Hearts isn’t specifically mentioned of course, but it would be very interesting if Square-Enix are planning on adding online multiplayer elements to KH3.
We have seen multiplayer elements in old Kingdom Hearts games before, but never had a full blown multiplayer that is geared towards online play for Kingdom Hearts.
Whispers suggest that director Tetsuya Nomura has been deciding whether or not to put multiplayer into Kingdom Hearts 3 and it could be the reason why official updates have been so slow.
If Kingdom Hearts 3 online multiplayer is really coming, then it’s obviously a huge task to make it work not only from a technical point of view – but acceptable to the legions of devoted fans out there too.
As we wait for the next news update from Square-Enix, let us know your thoughts on the likelihood of multiplayer for Kingdom Hearts 3. Do you see it as an inevitable outcome considering how much money can be made from add-on DLC content?
If it does come, how would you like to see it pan out?
