Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Enters Partnership With Studio Behind Dying Light PvP
With all of the hype surrounding the upcoming futuristic RPG from CD Projekt RED, it’s difficult not to be swept up in the storm that is excitement for Cyberpunk 2077. Despite its release date being unknown at this time, fans patiently await any word about the game. That said, it appears that CDPR is picking up further momentum in the development process by partnering with the studio behind Dying Light’s PvP mode.
In a recent press release, CD Projekt RED announced that it was entering a partnership with Digital Scapes, which is made up of former BioWare, Radical, and Relic developers. “The Canadian partner studio will closely cooperate with CD Projekt Red on creating and optimising technological solutions for use in the development of Cyberpunk 2077,” the release said.
Now, it’s worth noting that no mention of a multiplayer aspect is made in the press release, but one might assume as much considering Digital Scapes’ previous work on Dying Light. The studio’s LinkedIn also says they worked on “Dying Light’s cloud-based online service which allows developers to collect telemetry data and tune the game in real-time.” There’s no telling if the partnership means multiplayer is guaranteed for Cyberpunk 2077, but it’s certainly possible.
After all, Quest Designer Patrick Mills has previously stated that CDPR has “multiplayer in R&D, but the game we’re shipping to you, the game you’re going to buy is the single-player experience.” During the same conversation, it was also noted that multiplayer is a possibility as post-launch content, there are no promises. Either way, we know the title is poised to possibly be the most realistic RPG we’ve ever seen, teeming with life in a vibrantly dark city and providing players with a rather rich story. Whether we’ll get to experience it with others may be unknown, but we can’t wait to dive in.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a launch date remaining a mystery at this time. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
