CD Projekt's multiplayer job listing is research-oriented

The "Multiplayer Programmer" job being filled by CD Projekt Red shouldn't necessarily be taken as evidence of multiplayer, CDP marketing head Michal Platkow-Gilewski told Eurogamer. "We want to bring to the team someone experienced in this field to evaluate our concepts and ideas," he said. "He will be one of backbone elements of our R&D."

Platkow-Gilewski said the multiplayer programmer is part of CDP's desire to "explore all possible directions, check what would be cool, what's feasible and - always the most important for us - what suits our games the best."

In other words, the multiplayer programmer is there to help CD Projekt Red determine whether multiplayer would work in any upcoming games. We hope, for the sake of the person hired for that position, that it ends up working in at least one.
