Cyberpunk 2077 will include online elements of some sort according to a video interview

When science fiction writers pictured the world of tomorrow back in the mid-’80s, they pictured some things that definitely have not caught on in ubiquity (bulky VR headsets, neon everything, phasing out daylight in favor of rainy nights all day every day). But the whole idea of constantly interconnected computers? They got that. So it seems appropriate that the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red (best known for The Witcher series) will include some form of online component.

Company CEO Adam Kicinski has said in a recent interview that an online component is recommended and/or necessary in order to achieve long-term success in the video game marketplace. What that online component may be remains to be seen, as it could be anything from a multiplayer mode to lockboxes to just being a full online co-op game. You can check out the video interview just below, but it is in Polish, so you’ll want to turn on subtitles if that’s not a language you speak.

I’m a little worried considering they’re a single player game company. Hopefully it’ll be something simple like the co-op missions in Mass Effect.

CD Project Red are the parent company of gog.com with both entities being founded by Marcin Iwiński and Michał Kiciński (the person in the video)

Hoping it’s something co-op’ish, randomly generated runs or something along those lines – if not fully co-op main story. Would rather not see some half-assed PVP mode tacked into the game.

Amen to this. Would really love to be able to play in story mode with a few friends. 4 people feels like the magic number for a co-op game imo.

Most likely will be something similar to multiplayer mini-games in Watch Dogs 2… Though I really hope they’ll make it more interesting/persistent.

CDPR are not that sort of company imo and seem to always want to provide the best experience they can for their players money.

They did a series of 16 free dlc’s for Witcher 3 for example which they could have easily charged for. The dlc they did charge for added a huge amount of content to an already huge content rich game.

Time will tell but I am pretty confident it won’t anything shady or remotely like the EA’s current fustercluck

“The dlc they did charge for added a huge amount of content to an already huge content rich game.”
I’d even go so far as to say the “Blood and Wine” DLC was better than most games I’ve played in the past 20 years.

Trion used to be a good company when it comes to business models, look at them now, when it comes to game developers i never hope for good anymore.

Yeah, I have quite a bit of faith that CDPR won’t jack the gaming community. Plus, the game will probably sell 15 million copies anyway haha!

The sense of pride and accomplishment is important too.
