The idea of multiplayer being a part of CD Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, is something that has been played around with by its developer. Never denying it, statements regarding the feature would point in the direction that they were interested in doing it but it was not a primary focus for them. However, CD Projekt Red has just confirmed that, after extended time in R&D, multiplayer would be a coming feature in the game. The caveat is it is still in the works and will not be launching with the game in April.
The plan for now is to deliver Cyberpunk 2077 in April, then follow up with DLCs (free!) and single player content, and — once we’re done — invite you for some multiplayer action. – via Twitter
1/2 Until now, the only thing we said about multi was that it was in R&D. As we’re getting closer to launching ‘single player’ Cyberpunk 2077 in Apr. 2020, we’d like to confirm that multiplayer’s in the works!
