Game Director Tony Huynh has recently confirmed a response to a question asked by a player on Twitter about the co-op gameplay mechanic. He revealed that the team right now is focusing on stabilizing the MultiVersus experience. “Any plans to integrate couch co-op is further out,” he said.
Huynh said that the team is now focusing more on netcode improvements, hurt/hitboxes, projectiles, and platform interactions, which are all important to the team.
Players who are hoping for couch co-op will have to wait longer as the development team still has to make improvements to the game itself, which is a good thing. Having a local co-op while still being buggy will only hurt their sales.
MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass is already available introducing the new character Morty and more.
MultiVersus is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
