The Witcher developer CD Projekt has responded to a recent multiplayer job advert on the company’s website, saying that they “believe that there’s still a lot of space for innovation in the RPG genre.”.
Marketing head Michal Platkow-Gilewski explained to Eurogamer that they haven’t even decided what the successful applicant will be working on.
As for the job ad: this post should be named Multiplayer/Online Programmer. I don’t want to comment on what this guy will create, it’s way too early.As for the job advert itself, the developer requires applicants that will be ”creating a roadmap of changes necessary to add multiplayer to the Red Engine”, with experience of Xbox 360, PS3 and PC RPG development a “plus.”
We want to bring to the team someone experienced in this field to evaluate our concepts and ideas. He will be one of backbone elements of our R&D. We believe that there’s still a lot of space for innovation in the RPG genre. At this stage of our games’ development, we want to explore all possible directions, check what would be cool, what’s feasible and – always the most important for us – what suits our games the best.
It’s a distinct possibility that The Witcher 3 will feature some sort of multiplayer component, with the unannounced installment undoubtedly due to receive a PlayStation 3 version.
It’s been speculated that the the original Witcher, meanwhile, will arrive on Sony’s console.
