CD Projekt Red, which has released the new Cyberpunk 2077 patch, has announced the new roadmap for the open world game. However, the company seems to have reassessed the idea of offering the game’s multiplayer experience. The Poland-based game studio seems to have made it a priority to bring all of its games online one day.
Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt Red, describes the new long-term approach to the multiplayer experience in a new video. Kiciński stated that they wanted to add elements that seem meaningful to the game and continued, “We don’t want to lose our DNA where the single player experience is at the forefront. We want to take significant steps to improve our online capabilities.
The studio appears to have prioritized a more inclusive online framework. The company wants to draw fans to the platform through the GoG store. Kiciński said, “We are building an online technology that will be seamlessly integrated into the development of our future games. This technology will power the online elements that we want to integrate into our games. So we will build an online community with our own GOG Galaxy platform in the middle and connect players both inside and outside the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 has long been described as a standalone game with a massive multiplayer experience. The fact that single-player games are still popular and the studio doesn’t want to relive the troubles of the debut seems to have been effective in this decision change. CD Projekt Red seems to have prioritized fixing the bugs in the game during this time.
