Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer will fit with the lore of the single-player campaign. This is what CD Projekt Red level designer Max Pears, said in an interview with Video Games Chronicles.
Pears said that the multiplayer mode is spending a lot of time in the research and development phase. That’s to be sure that it fits with the lore of the world.
“I can’t say too much on it because it’s still going through its process. But it’s about making sure that multiplayer fits in with the lore of the world and it feels right.”
Then Pears added that Cyberpunk 2077‘ s multiplayer needs to fit with how CD Projekt designs and delivers games.
“It’s about making sure it fits in with who we are as a company as well, because the story is so important to us, plus it needs to fit in with how we design and deliver games.”
“That’s why it was so important to go through the R&D process with it, to make sure that we’re not just throwing something in and that it feels like a CD Projekt Red multiplayer that has our beliefs and design philosophy.”
Pears also said that the Cyberpunk 2077‘ s team is hiring to get “the right people for the job.” Though, Pears added that the single-player is still CD Projekt Red’s main focus, at the moment.
