In a strategy update video posted today, the studio said that it’s changing course with multiplayer.
“Previously we hinted that our next triple-A would be a multiplayer Cyberpunk game, but we have decided to reconsider this plan,” Kiciński says in the video. “Given our new, more systematic and agile approach, instead of primarily focusing on one big online experience or game, we are focusing on bringing online into all of our franchises one day. We are building an online technology that can be seamlessly integrated into development of our future games.”
“CD Projekt Red makes singleplayer, story-driven, triple-A RPGs. That is not changing,” he said. “What is changing is our long-term approach to online. By this, we mean ensuring we are properly prepared to implement online elements in our games where they make sense. We don’t have to go overboard, or lose our singleplayer DNA. We want to take thoughtful steps to build robust online capabilities.”
