The future of single-player games has been thrown into chaos lately as developers are keen to make multi-player more widely available in the interest of giving players content that keeps on giving, rather than finishing a title at the end of the main story.

However, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has now given his thoughts on the shrinking popularity of single-player games within developers, insisting that players are still eager to sink their teeth into a good story, which will continue to push sales of those titles.

According to GameSpot.com Yves - whose company develops the 'Assassin's Creed' franchise - said during an investors call: "Those types of games can continue to sell for a long time."

Ubisoft have had huge success with single player games in the past, with the 'Assassin's Creed' franchise having recently released its 10th instalment 'Origins'.

The company are also finding success with Nintendo Switch release 'Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle', which is also a single-player title.

Meanwhile, 'Horizon: Zero Dawn' developer Tim Stobo - who works for game developers Guerrilla Games - recently said there was a future for single-player games that he hopes 'Horizon' can revive.

He said: "I think 'Horizon' proves that there is a future for a really high quality single-player experience. [The upcoming story expansion Frozen Wilds] proves that again. We're really committed to delivering that high level, quality experience for players. It does seem like maybe there is a business shift in other parts of the industry. But at Guerrilla, we're just focused on telling amazing stories."
