The Witcher 3 Has “No Place For Multiplayer”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt won’t have multiplayer, as CD Projekt Red believes it has “no place” in a “strongly story-driven game”.
The company’s head of marketing Michal Platkow-Gilewski told Eurogamer that the decision was an easy one, as the team wanted to focus on the climax of Geralt’s story.
“There’s no place for multiplayer in so strongly a story-driven game as The Witcher 3,” he said. “We want to focus on the single-player experience, delivering more than 100 hours of truly immersive gameplay. Geralt can be only one.”
Multiplayer almost seems to be a given component in most games these days, what with it cropping up in predominantly single-player titles like Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3.
