You know how it is; you’re interested in a game but the developer doesn’t say anything about it for ages and you wake up one morning to a ton of reports.
Yesterday CD Projekt Red streamed a financial results debrief, during which president Adam Kiciński revealed a couple of details about Cyberpunk 2077. While very juicy details, such as the game’s release date, weren’t mentioned, Kiciński did reveal a piece of news that’s likely to be music to the ears of most players waiting for this game.
While the developer doesn’t seem to have entirely ruled out any multiplayer options for Cyberpunk 2077, its focus is on delivering an awesome single-player mode – ya know, just like it did with The Witcher games.
“We’re considering everything and anything,” Kiciński said. “But as of today we’re not discussing Cyberpunk yet. The first thing we’re going to discuss is the immense story-driven roleplay for a single player without any micro-payments, without any hidden things whatsoever.”
Cybperpunk 2077 was also described as very technologically advanced, leading some to speculate that it may be cross generational between the current crop of consoles and whatever machines may follow after them.
“Technology-wise, Cyberpunk is very advanced. Our technology is ready to interface with future generations,” Kiciński said. “The game is developed in such a way that it can use future, very powerful equipment but I cannot tell you more beyond that today as no future generation of console has been announced.”
Kiciński wouldn’t be drawn on whether Cyberpunk 2077 will make an appearance at this year’s E3 expo. While the developer will be there, it’s unknown at this stage whether it’ll make any announcements about the game. Still, those with one eye on Cyberpunk 2077 have learned the virtue of patience; the game’s been in development for around six years now, after all.
