There's 'no place' for multiplayer in The Witcher 3

4 posts in this topic

While CD Projekt RED had previously mentioned its interest in experimenting with multiplayer as a possibility for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, plans to move forward with such a feature have been dropped. The studio "strongly [feels] that this final saga of Geralt has no place for meaningful multiplayer," project lead Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told Forbes.

Going one step further, Eurogamer got a similar comment from marketing head Michal Platkow-Gilewski which further drove the point home: "There's no place for multiplayer in so strongly a story-driven game as The Witcher 3. We want to focus on the single-player experience, delivering more than 100 hours of truly immersive gameplay."

Knowing what your game does best and concentrating on it? Yeah, that sounds like a plan. In other fist-pumping news, Forbes also learned that there will be no quick-time events this time around. The rationale is exactly what you'd expect: "[QTEs] didn't fit this type of gaming experience and usually frustrated players," explained Tomaszkiewicz.

Looks like a sure buy for me. Even if I wasn't a sucker for RPGs (which I am), I'd probably still buy it to make a point :p

No multiplayer? No microtransactions? Must be some kind of newbies with absolutely no clue how to make a game!

No quicktime events? Good - those were easily the most annoying things about The Witcher 2
