That money is usually better spent on multiplayer DRM, marketing, yet another content distribution network, or more preloaded DLC's.

At first glance, you might think that games like COD would already have a decent AI implementation for their Single Player Campaign, at least that was my first thought.

 

But these implementations are probably less sophisticated than you think: the only thing they have to do is run to cover and shoot at you. And maybe a very trivial "spotted" method for stealth missions. Everything else, any tactics behind it, is probably done via level design, backspawns for flanking etc. So multiplayer AI takes up a lot more resources than you might think.

 

The last game I played that had multiplayer AI was Counter Strike, here you really don't have a Single Player Campagin. Multiplayer matches are sort of the only thing. On the other hand you have games like MOW/COD that have a full blown SP Campaign, the single players are likely already satisfied with this.
