How many video games are simultaneously great single-player games and great multiplayer games? I'm not going to claim zero, but I am almost certain that if there are any, they are an exception to the rule.

 

The principles that make a great single-player game are fundamentally different from those that make a great multiplayer game. In addition, there is only a finite amount of time in which to make a game--trying to make two games in the same amount of time is going to result in a reduction of quality in both unless magic or deals with Satan are introduced.

 

Therefore, the fact of the matter is that whenever I hear news of a single-player game "getting multiplayer" I don't feel like breaking out the party hats and kazoos. I don't often get a chance to use the word 'kazoo', by the way.

 

Having said that, I don't believe we have any concrete news on this subject. I'm just pre-bitching.

From what they said before, their multiplayer game will be like a gwent and that you can only play the game in bars/clubs etc.

I really don't think they wouldve needed to bring in a whole nother studio for a gwent-like mini game.

Oooookay.

 

I actually read CD Projekt RED's Digital Scapes Studios Ltd's press release, as well as the information on its Linked in page, and there is no indication given that this collaboration has anything to do with multiplayer.

 

In addition to multiplayer game programming, Digital Scapes lists its services as including:

 

  • PC game development
  • Combat and mission design
  • Animation
  • Production tools and pipelines
  • Analytics and R&D

...any of which could be useful to CD Projekt RED and relevant to Cyberpunk 2077.

 

Also, the head of Digital Scapes, Marcin Chady, specifically mentions CD Projekt RED's "narrative-driven, role-playing games".

 

I'm not trying to convince myself or anyone of anything--the truth is truth regardless--but it seems a misunderstanding arose from someone associating Digital Scapes with multiplayer development on Dying Light, and in turn associating multiplayer with Cyberpunk 2077.
