MP is something they definitely have planned for the near future. If not present at release.

That's not at all the impression I've gotten from what Erik and Elliot have said.


Yes, Elliot is making the game so that MP can be added later on, and Erik has stated they definitely hope/would like to do so. However, I'm reasonably certain we're not going to see MP added to the game anytime soon.

We might -- *might* -- see MP added in the first major expansion, but I honestly doubt it. And I can't imagine we'll see it added any sooner than that (although I won't be upset if I turn out to be wrong).

Agreed, as much as I'd love MP we really only have confirmation that the engine is capable of supporting MP and that it would be possible to implement it at a later date.

Well, in my opinion it would be odd to design a game with MP in mind (and that's not a simple thing) and not have it in at some point. If all goes well, i don't see why not. The ball is in the air about when that's going to happen, i agree.

I don't remember which thread it was in but they definitely said that the foundation of MP was planned from the start as a future option but actually putting it in would not be a primary consideration at least early on. So unless DW2 has brisk sales and catches on in a big way don't expect MP any time soon as they have so much other basic stuff to put back in like pirate play and the other races etc.

SirHoraceHarkness has it right. There was no source in particular to what i said a few posts back, just my impressions of everything i've read. I think they will add MP in at most 2 years post release (near future). Won't be at release though, of that im more certain now. Hope that clears things up a bit cause this isn't exactly on topic, lol.
