Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer mode is real and coming when its ready
Cyberpunk 2077 is finally out for Windows, Playstation 4, Xbox One and other platforms. The game was first teased way back in 2012 and it has been released as a Single player action RPG set in the fictional world of Night City in the year 2077. In its stages of development, there was talk of a multiplayer version of the game.
Now, after the (slightly botched) release of Cyberpunk 2077, the developers will soon be able to focus on other projects. During development, it was confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer would be a standalone adventure and now, people are curious about what the game possibly could be. So, here's what we know about Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer.
Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer is coming but no one knows when
CD Projekt Red have been teasing a kind of a multiplayer version of the game ever since it was in development. The most recent development is that the company's CEO called the (multiplayer) project a massive "separate standalone production."
Apart from that, CDPR publishing head stated that Cyberpunk 2077 will come, but not as soon as people expect it to. "Given the expected release of Cyberpunk 2077 in September- which was later moved to November, then December-, and frankly speaking the series of events which we expect to occur after that date, 2021 appears unlikely as a release date for the Cyberpunk multiplayer."
Aside from this, we don't really know much about Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer. There is currently no word on how the game will run, play, what mechanics it will utilize and how it will take care of basic online game tropes.
Even now, as the game is in players' hands, we can see that there is still a lot of work required to actually have it running as we had hoped. However, this current issue of bugs, glitches and poor performance on consoles is one that will take a priority for CDPR.
Most likely, the company will rely on patches and updates to improve performance. As of now, it is more or less confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer won't come out before 2022.
