The list of projects submitted for grants from the Polish GameINN program has revealed potential new information for CD Projekt Red's highly anticipated upcoming title Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt S.A., the capital group that includes CD Projekt Red, applied for a grant for something called City Creation, which, according to the official description (as translated from Polish), 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."
The group also applied for something called Seamless Multiplayer, 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." The description evokes a similar mechanic to what Ubisoft offers in their Watch Dogs series, where gamers are free to join other player’s sessions at any time.
Other information the PDF revealed were grants for Animation Excellence, which is technology used for making more realistic animations in open-world RPG games, and Cinematic Feel.
Cyberpunk 2077, the developer's first game since the critically acclaimed Witcher 3 last year, currently has no release date.
