"In answer to the issue you highglight in your email, I’m afraid that online will not be present in A Space Oddity. While I appreciate many gamers would like to see that feature, we’re not able to change the release date due to contractual obligations with THQ.

I’m really sorry that I can’t be more helpful in this instance, but hope that you appreciate the effort and love that we *have* put into the game. Whether you end up purchasing it or not (and I can understand if you’re a hardcore fan of the game, maybe “Worms Open Warfare 2? on PSP or DS: two online-centric versions of the game, would be a flavour you’d enjoy more), I’d like to thank you for taking the time to mail and say that we greatly appreciate the feedback we get from fans of the game."


Damn you THQ, you had something that would sell a lot of copies and you won't let them put online on as it means a delay! I hate you even more now.

Miyamoto is right.. "A delayed game will eventually be a good game. A bad game will always be a bad game."

Wasn't SEGA publishing the last Worms games? What happened?

Damn it, as a big Worms lover I was looking forward to this.

What a joke it is without online -- even the DS one had online! Me thinks there rushing it to market... Well fuck 'em. I'm not even going to download it if it hasn't got online.

If Team 17 do another Worms game for Wii they should go it alone and release it as WiiWare.

This is why Wii60 is the perfect combo for you Wii owners, your gettin had off time and time again. Even the Worms game on Xbox Live Arcade has online MP.
imo Wii sux, and news like this keeps it sucking. What possible logic reasoning can there be for this? I know I can't think of any.

imo wii doesn't suck! develpment teams which are so money hungry that they simply cut out an essential mode for such a game SUCK big time!!!
Possible logic reason: dont buy rushed and quickly thrown at the market games!

By the way the new bomberman game wont have online too!

What the fuck is Worms without online, lol? That's like single player Smash Bros. or Counter Strike. Or multiplayer only Zelda.

If I remember correctly there was a multi-player only Zelda called Four Swords

Dissapointed in the in the game altogether Worms thrives on online even the games made for the PC back in 1997 had online-multiplayer. I would've thought SSBB would have encouraged developers to keep delaying there games so they can make them better.

I used to play Worms 2 alot at one time on the PC.
Fun stuff to play online. Extremly boring offline without a second player.

I would blame THQ for this crap. As no doubt Team17 would want it online.
I think theres some sorta wait that nintendo puts devs through to get a game online or something. Wich is also extra stupid.
I really wish we could get a real explanation rather than all these excuses.

Funny though, Nights has online play. It really doesnt need online play.
Yet a game that really needs it doesnt get online.
Ironic really.

Too bad they didnt stick with Sega though.
I think their deal with Sega ended after Worms3D didnt sell so well.
Personally I thought the 3D one was a fine addition to the series.
Mins that annoying menu music.

Maybe we might see another one on Wiiware or something if we're lucky.
Id defintly hope so.
Simple classic worms with online play. Id buy that for five bucks and even gift one.
