Peter Molyneux Defends Xbox One Always-Online Requirements

22Cans creative director, Peter Molyneux, is defending Microsoft’s decision to make constant internet connection mandatory to be able to play on Xbox One. A policy which has been cancelled a few days after announcement thanks to players’ backlash.

"I know Microsoft, I know they were only doing things because they thought they were long-reaching and long-thinking," said Peter Molyneux.

"But the world we live in now is that we have to realize, especially if you're a big corporation, if you make one step wrong, the world will leap on you, and unfairly, very unfairly, they will judge you."

Molyneux is known for founding and leading Lionhead Studios from 1997 to March 2012 when he moved to 22Can to develop Godus, a spiritual successor to Populous. Lionhead Studios were acquired by Microsoft in April 2006.
