"No Place for Multiplayer" in The Witcher 3 confirms developer


CD Projekt RED has confirmed that there's no place for multiplayer in The Witcher 3: Witch Hunt, due to the game's story driven experience.

Speaking in a new interview with Eurogamer, head of marketing Michal Platkow-Gilewski confirmed that Witcher 3 will not include multiplayer, which we think is fantastic - sometimes it's just nice to get lost in an RPG world all on your lonesome.

"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. Geralt can be only one."

Hopefully more developers will sit up and realise that multiplayer is not always necessary.

What do you think?

Sadly, no mention of no MP in cyberpunk. I'm more interested in that than The Witcher.

Why? The Witcher 2 had great combat, the way you had to prepare before every fight and fight carefully it's was great

For you, I'm going to overtake you soon, and to think there was a 5K+ gap between us when we started.

Pleased with this decision, IMO too many devs try to shoehorn in multiplayer modes in what are essentially single player games and usually at the cost of the overall single player experience. Good focused single player story driven games like this are what I prefer, just hope it lives up to my expectations.

Good. Games like this don't need multiplayer. Originally single player games that have multiplayer added later in the franchise can sometimes have it done well (Mass Effect, for example) but sometimes it is just awful like with Assassins Creed. So glad that this will be a single player game! I play those a lot more than multiplayer ones :D
