CD Projekt Red’s Managing Director Adam Badowski has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will indeed have multiplayer. But no concrete details about the multiplayer was announced, as Badowski merely said,
“It will be a story-based RPG experience with amazing single-player playthroughs, but we’re going to add multiplayer features.”
This is coming straight off the heels of news coming out that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may also be implementing some multiplayer. Badowski said that they are “thinking about something” when asked about multiplayer in The Witcher 3.
Badowski also dropped some details about Cyberpunk 2077′s setting and character customization. Cyberpunk 2077 is an open world RPG, with players starting in an area called Night City and then moving out to different locations. When talking about character customization, Badowski said that Cyberpunk 2077 will be different from The Witcher because Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be limited to an already defined protagonist. There’s going to be more flexibility in Cyberpunk 2077, with different character classes and more freedom of choice.
With Cyberpunk 2077 slated to release in 2015 for next generation consoles and PC, there’s still a lot of waiting to be done. Apparently the reason why CD Projekt Red unveiled a teaser trailer so far before its release date was to try to attract development talent.
Badowski was also asked about the dichotomy between PC and consoles, as this is the first time they are looking to release on all systems at once. He said,
“I don’t think that the gaming world is split between PC and consoles. I’m a console player and I was a PC player and … I don’t want to be treated as stupid or less smart than a PC player. It’s not like that. We definitely want to bring mature and ambitious gaming experience to the wider audience.”
