CD Projekt RED believes that there's no point forcing multiplayer into a story-driven experience, and definitely won't put it in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
"There's no place for multiplayer in so strongly a story-driven game as The Witcher 3," marketing man Michal Platkow-Gilewski told Eurogamer. "We want to focus on the single-player experience, delivering more than 100 hours of truly immersive gameplay."
"Geralt," he coyly continued, "can be only one..."
Having seen so many games offer pointless multiplayer modes that die out after a matter of weeks, sometimes even sapping valuable development time away from the core singleplayer experience, I think we can all agree that CD Projekt are once again talking simple, honest-to-God sense. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out in 2014 for PC, PS4 and whatever Microsoft announces on May 21st. [Eurogamer via VG247]
