CD Projekt RED has previously confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer will be a thing, though what exactly it will have to offer remains a mystery. While rumors pegged the online component as a way for players to hang out with each other within bars in Night City, the studio has confirmed that the mysterious multiplayer won't be available at launch and for good reason.
Speaking with Eurogamer, lead quest designer Pawel Sasko has confirmed that the single-player part of Cyberpunk 2077 remains the number one focus and that the multiplayer content will "definitely be post-launch." He also mentioned that they considered doing their online like Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto franchise, though nothing has officially been confirmed at this time.
Now that we have a release date, it's possible we'll learn more during PAX West and right before the holiday season. Whatever the case may be, what we've seen so far looks absolutely stunning and CD Projekt RED has already proven they know how to balance what fans want.
As for the game itself, CD Projekt RED's brand new IP officially arrives on April 16th, 2020. For more about the game:
