The Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, currently codenamed Orion, is a complete mystery. Aside from the fact that it’s in development, we know almost nothing about the project. One thing we do know is that developer CD Projekt Red is seriously thinking about bringing multiplayer into the mix this time around.
“We think that [artificial intelligence] is something that can help improve certain processes in game production, but not replace people,” Nowakowski said. That sounds nice, but only time will tell how AI is used in the company’s games going forward.
Kotaku reached out to CDPR for comment.
Badowski and Nowakowski’s comments on multiplayer echo CDPR’s position in October 2022, when the company revealed its intention to bring multiplayer to its upcoming games, of which there are five in the works that we know of. It’s unclear what form multiplayer will take when it arrives in the Polish studio’s in-development games, but at least we know it’s real and (potentially) coming. Let’s just hope that, like CD Projekt Red has already promised, its developers won’t have to crunch to make it all happen.
