Night City remains going on the web, someday
A brand new Cyberpunk 2077 job listing indicates that CD Projekt Red is getting back on track with plans for a certain kind of multiplayer component to the first-person RPG.
The CD Projekt Red list is specifically filed under Cyberpunk 2077 on the studio’s tasks page, and one of its set of desirable qualifications for a gameplay designer is”encounter with storyline, multi-player or shooters.” As it stands now, Cyberpunk 2077 is an exclusively single-player experience, but the studio was open about its plans to create a multiplayer experience for or alongside the bottom game as well.
While a standalone Cyberpunk multiplayer match has been previously set to become CD Projekt Red’s next big job after releasing Cyberpunk 2077the studio “decided to reconsider” the project’s direction as part of a massive restructuring of its development strategy:”Given our new, more orderly and nimble approach, rather than focusing on a single large online experience or sport, we’re focusing on bringing internet into all of our franchises daily,” studio CEO Adam Kiciński said in the time.
Because this job list specifically asks for expertise with multiplayer matches, it’s a fairly safe assumption that CD Projekt Red is once more looking into the possibilities for some kind of Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayergame. It might appear odd for the company to be looking to plans for something as large as the addition of a multiplayer experience when it is still attempting to get all the game’s present versions relisted for sale after numerous launch problems. Nonetheless, such decisions must be made years beforehand in the complicated process of creating a contemporary, big-budget sport, and preparing for you doesn’t preclude work on the other.
Cyberpunk 2077 also recently caused a brand new game manager whose primary remit will be major work on future Cyberpunk 2077 expansions, which CD Projekt has formerly teased will be handled in an identical manner as The Witcher 3’s DLC.
