Looks like CD Projekt Red is finally ready to step out of their comfort zone and are gearing things up. Though they’re purposely keeping their team for the adaptation of Cyberpunk 2077 small for now, Badowski plans to bolster the project’s roster to rival that of their flagship title. When speaking with Eurogamer about their newest endeavor Badowski said, “It will be a story-based RPG experience with amazing single-player playthroughs, but we’re going to add multiplayer features”.
While not divulging any further on the subject, he did confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will not demand that you fill the role of a predefined hero, but let you decide your own path straight from the beginning. Which has got to be great news for anyone who has played the original pen-and-paper version. In this dark future in the metropolis of Night City where technology has a delicate balance between salvation and doom, players will have to undergo “different situations in Cyberpunk,” that will not adhere to linear progression, and that “Cyberpunk will have different character classes”.
Lastly, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also going under close scrutiny to see if the multiplayer angle could or should be applied. It would be a huge break away from the title’s tradition, and Badowski confirmed that if they did do a multiplayer for Geralt’s final journey, it would be nothing like the Arena option from Witcher 2‘s Dark Mode. But they are “thinking about something” that might match The Witcher‘s typical feel without removing us from the elements we’re used to. Here’s the teaser trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 in case you missed it! Pay close attention to the release date at the end of this one folks, I believe them.
