It seems like Cyberpunk 2077 is going places the polish studio CD Projekt Red hasn’t gone before. CEO Adam Kiciński mentioned that the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, will contain ‘online elements’ of some capacity.
In an interview with Polish investment site Strefa Inwestorow, Kiciński discussed all of the current projects from the studio, including the future of the Witcher franchise, the card game Gwent, and of course, Cyberpunk.
“We want to experiment in new fields that were not yet explored in the Witcher,” says Kiciński. “I can’t say much about Cyberpunk, although our ambitions are set really high because that is our style of work. We want to go even higher, and especially seeing how we’re having a business chat, we’re interested in Cyberpunk being commercially even more significant.”
Kiciński noted that the Studio is investing heavily into the title and expects it to be a greater commercial success than The Witcher 3. When asked to comment on multiplayer in Cyberpunk 2077, Kiciński responded, stating that “Online is necessary, or very recommended if you wish to achieve a long-term success,” he continued. “At some point, we have mentioned that there will be a certain online element related to Cyberpunk.”
Considering the whole issue with publishers demanding micro-transaction implementation into modern video games, it makes sense that CD Projekt Red get some sort of multiplayer involvement in the title. Perhaps we may see a similar multiplayer mode as Ubisoft’s Watchdogs?
