Easily one of the most anticipated games landing next year, Cyberpunk 2077 has had quite an active week at E3 2019. In between announcing both its release date and collaboration with Keanu Reeves, more information on things like multiplayer has also emerged.
Although Cyberpunk 2077 was always planned to launch with only its single-player mode, multiplayer was previously known to be in R&D. That seems to have changed in the meantime, according to lead quest designer Paweł Sasko.
Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer
"We're not really working on multiplayer, our sole focus is single-player. We'll do that, then we'll see. We're not saying no but we're not saying yes. If something does happen it will definitely be post-launch and that's as much as I can say right now.", Sasko said in an interview with Eurogamer.
When asked whether Cyberpunk 2077's multiplayer could follow a similar route to Grand Theft Auto Online's, he answered by saying that there were indeed "some discussions in the studio", however, nothing is currently being worked on in that sense.
Furthermore, Sasko mentioned that if multiplayer was to be added to Cyberpunk 2077 it'd be done in the studio's style, tapping into the "good stories, amazing characters, choices and consequences" that CD Projekt Red is known for.
Cyberpunk 2077 is due out on April 16, 2020 and Keanu Reeves' character will reportedly play a major role.
