CD Projekt Red given loads of money, researching seamless multiplayer

They say ’tis the season for giving, and it looks like CD Projekt Red has been allowed to open one of their presents a few days before December 25: a cash bounty from the Polish government to the tune of 30 million zloty (that’s $7 million US dollars or £5.6 million Queen’s megapounds), according to a report from WCCFTech.



To make off with those hefty stacks from a total jackpot of 116 million zloty, the Witcher 3 developer submitted four proposals to the Polish National Center for Research of Development, along with one additional one relating to cross-platform development of GOG.

Let’s have a look at what the proposals were about, shall we, and then we can sit back and (perhaps excitedly, it is Christmas after all) speculate on what the studio could possibly be working on next:
City Creation
Comprehensive technology for the creation of “live”, playable in real-time, cities of great scale based on the principles of artificial intelligence and automation and taking into account the development of innovative processes and tools supporting the creation of high-quality open world games.


Seamless Multiplayer
Comprehensive technology enables the creation of unique gameplay for many players, taking into account the search of opponents, session management, replication facilities, and support of a variety of game modes along with a unique set of dedicated tools.


Cinematic Feel
Comprehensive technology for providing a unique, film quality RPG with open world, also taking into account innovative solutions Process and unique set of dedicated tools.


Animation Excellence
Comprehensive technology enabling a significant increase in quality and production of complex face and body animations for open world RPG games, also taking into account the innovative process solutions and a unique set of dedicated tools.

Elsewhere in the list of winners, Dying Light developer Techland saw their bank accounts fill up after promising a prototype of a first-person fantasy RPG, with money also reaching the coffers of CI Games, The Farm 51, and Bloober Team.


In a statement, CD Projekt Red boss Adam Kicinski said the resulting schemes would “enable Polish developers to carry out nearly 40 projects worth 191 million PLN.” Even without staring into our crystal ball (PLEASE LET IT BE CYBERPUNK 2077) and looking at the future, seeing this investment into our industry on the world stage gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling… or maybe that’s just all the glühwein kicking in.
