CD Projekt Red’s massive upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, has now faced a couple of delays, but it’s still set to be one of the biggest releases of the generation. Originally planned to launch April 16, the game was then pushed to September before receiving yet another delay to November.
CD Projekt Red hasn’t given us an update on multiplayer for a while now, and it’s hoped that the multiplayer content is still on track to launch as planned, sometime after 2021.
During a Q and A earlier this year, board member Michal Nowakowski said the multiplayer mode is being worked on alongside the main game, though it’s still a few years from release.
“In terms of multiplayer, one thing we need to make clear is that the AAA release we’re working on in parallel with CP2077 is Cyberpunk multiplayer – so that’s the first thing to say, and I think Adam was alluding that things are gonna be moving,” he said.
“So, given the expected release of Cyberpunk 2077 in September and the series of events which we expect to occur after that date, 2021 appears unlikely as the release date for Cyberpunk multiplayer.”
We don’t know too much about the multiplayer mode right now, and considering how many times the main game has been delayed, it’s not all too surprising.
With the additional mode coming as late as two years after the main title’s launch, it seems as though CD Projekt Red is in it for the long haul with Cyberpunk 2077!
Cyberpunk 2077 will release in November on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. If you pick up the game on a current-gen console, you’ll receive a free upgrade to next-gen, along with a free update patch post-release.
