The developers behind Cyberpunk 2077 have entered into a “long-term strategic cooperation” with Digital Scapes.
Digital Scapes is a Vancouver-based multiplayer-focused development house with previous experience working on games like Company of Heroes and Dying Light.
Now, it’s not been said outright by the company, but we can assume that this is going to be related to a possible multiplayer component in Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red has previously said that they won’t be shipping the game with multiplayer but that it is in the R&D phase.
This means that whilst we may not get a multiplayer mode on launch, it may be coming later along the line, much like Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V.
Michal Nowakowski, Senior VP of BizDev at CD Projekt Red had this to say about the partnership.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is our most ambitious project to date, and we work hard every day to make it a creative and technological achievement. The Digital Scapes team brings aboard a lot of talent, experience, and technical knowledge, and I’m very confident our long-term cooperation will add plenty to the game.”
Details are naturally very slim at this point in time, but we will be sure to update you when we get any more of the finer details of this partnership and more news about the hotly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077.
