Florence Kum, Senior Producer of the game also said on Playstation Blog that they first wanted to make the game playable for four players, but the idea to play a the game split-screen with four players was later thrown in the basket.
Kum said the following:
“We are informed that some of the fans wanted a split-screen playable for four individuals, just like in Starhawk’s predecessor Warhawk. But we finally agreed not to implement this into the game, based on statistics and the fact that there are not enough people who make use of it. Instead, we decided to put more effort in the two player split-screen.
Kum extended his apology to those would like to see a four player split-screen in Starhawk.
In Starhawk both players will be able to login into Playstation Network and fight together on the battlefield,’ Kum explained.
Only thing about this hole two player split-screen Kum did not mention was that only one player will be able to receive trophy’s.
