CD Projekt RED, champion of all that is good and right and also a few other things that aren’t either of those things, has once more stood proudly in defence of the single-player experience.
“There’s no place for multiplayer in so strongly a story-driven game as The Witcher 3,” marketing head Michal Platkow-Gilewski told Eurogamer.
“We want to focus on the single-player experience, delivering more than 100 hours of truly immersive gameplay. Geralt can be only one.”
You may be surprised to learn that there was ever any question of the series going multiplayer, but a few months ago CD Projekt said it was thinking about something, although not necessarily a traditional multiplayer mode. Whatever it was toying with now seems to have been abandoned.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is expected in 2014.
