Money nicely spent.
A few months in the past, CD Projekt applied for government grants via the Polish GameINN programme to analysis City Creation, Animation Excellence, Cinematic Feel, and Seamless Multiplayer.
According to the official description, City Creation is “a complex technology for creating a huge living city, playable in real time, which [the technology] is based on rules, AI, and automation, and supports innovative processes and tools for making top-notch open-world games” whereas Seamless Multiplayer is described as “a complex technology for making unique multiplayer gameplay mechanics, including the ability to search for opponents, manage game session, replicate objects, and support for different game modes along with a unique set of dedicated tools.”
Presumably these applied sciences can be carried out in CD Projekt’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 that appears set to be quite impressive already.
WCCF Tech reported final week that the corporate’s request for the grant was accredited.
CD Projekt RED’s president Adam Kiciński launched a press release, saying that, “Developing videogames is a hyperinnovative exercise, but in addition one which carries substantial monetary dangers, entails steady R&D work and requires a lot experimentation and prototyping alongside the way in which.
“The GameINN program – a fruit of our business’s collaborative efforts – will, within the coming years, allow Polish builders to hold out practically 40 tasks value 191 million PLN. I’m assured that the ensuing modern options will additional elevate the standard of Polish videogames and improve our competitiveness on the worldwide stage. Indeed, our business now has the potential to develop into the champion of the trendy Polish financial system.”
It will surely be fascinating to see the studio’s tackle seamless multiplayer in a world considerably greater than The Witcher’s, however we’ll have to attend some time to see it in motion.
