    <b>3. Do you plan to implement a multiplayer option, like in some other RPGs, or a co-operative mode? If this is not the case, we&#8217;d like to know what are the problems or difficulties which prevent you from doing it.</b>

    <br>
    Right now implementation of any form of multiplayer mode is not taken under consideration. Multiplayer games require a slightly different approach, not mentioning the technical changes that would have to be done to our engine. It is hard to imagine a world populated by "Geralts" or even by a large number of witchers, who are relicts of the past and almost an extinct profession. On the other hand implementing something like Diablo II or Neverwinter Night, where a player can choose from various races and professions is nearly impossible in The Witcher's world - it just doesn't fit. On the other hand we are aware that interacting with other players is very important and fun. In my opinion the best way to allow that is to implement some kind of co-operative mode (like in Gears of War for example), but this is a question for the future.</blockquote>

    Multiplayer Witcher. Gee that's a great idea. Somebody needs to do something about this horrible glut of single player, story-driven Western RPGs. :roll:

    The way the question is asked implies that the only possible reason behind the absence of multiplayer are technical difficulties. MMOs make people dumb.

    Holy crap, this is the dumbest question ever. Sounds like "Why does it have no multiplayer? Are you too dumb to make multiplayer? Lol, even the original NWN has multiplayer."

    Wow, that's a stupid thing to ask. I wouldn't be suprised if it was gamespot or any other game portal, but it's Witcher fansite

    I guess they've started after release... If they'd been following The Witcher for at least year, ther wouldn't be such questions i guess.
