We know people, dammit, really!
It is unfortunate since a lot of people wanted this (I am not one of them). Apparently split screen is a resource hog from what Todd Batty has said in interviews when asked why it was taken out. It was a tough call, but they felt online was/is where its at nowadays which is true in general. Personally I am glad they did not waste the resources on it, but I know a lot of people are not happy about it which is understandable as well.
The good news is they have hinted at a possibility of splitscreen being released for DLC at some point or maybe in the sequel if this one is successful enough. There is still hope for those who want this
My biggest DLC wishes are to improve the online multiplayer experience when it comes to playing against friends/strangers since it is a bit clunky right now as far as actual head to head racing where everyone starts at the same time, and a Free Ride mode.
Overall though, I have not been more excited for a game in years as I am for this one! Should be awesome HT fun as well.
