No, we don’t have confirmation that the next Witcher game will include multiplayer, but CD Projekt has posted a job listing for an experienced multiplayer programmer to work with the studio’s core team.
The bullet point also had this to add:
- Creating a roadmap of changes necessary to add multiplayer to the Red Engine.
- Designing and implementing network layer of the Red Engine.
- Helping in design and implementation of multiplayer changes to existing systems.
- Participating in shaping the future of the Red Engine.
It states that experience working on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 is a plus.
So, does this mean multiplayer for The Witcher 3? Or is this for something much sooner, say, their upcoming Cyberpunk RPG?
We’ll post more news as it develops.
