'Cyberpunk 2077' developer CD Projekt Red has teamed with Digital Scapes.
The company has announced a "long-term partnership" with the new Canadian studio - which features developers from BioWare Relic and Radical - and confirmed the start of this collaboration will be on the upcoming role-playing game.
In a press release, the firm revealed: "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.' "
Although the solutions haven't been elaborated on, Digital Scapes' LinkedIn blurb reveals the studio build the PvP invasion mode for Techland game 'Dying Light'.
It also worked on the title's "cloud-based online service which allows developers to collect telemetry data and tune the game in real-time".
It could suggest that 'Cyberpunk 2077' will feature a multiplayer mode of some kind, and CD Projekt Red has hinted at the possibility in the past.
Quest designer Patrick Mills previously said: "We have multiplayer in R&D, but the game we're shipping to you, the game you're going to buy is the single-player experience.... Maybe [multiplayer will come post-launch], no promises.
"Nothing at launch. At launch we're concentrating on the single-player game. That's what we want to give you."
