CD Projekt Red Discusses Adding Multiplayer to Cyberpunk 2077 and Their Thought Process Behind it

In a new interview from the Tokyo Game Show, CD Projekt Red discusses adding multiplayer to Cyberpunk 2077.

In a new interview with VGC at the Tokyo Game Show, Max Pears, a level designer at CD Projekt Red, discusses adding multiplayer to Cyberpunk 2077 and their thought process behind it.

“I can’t say too much on it because it’s still going through its process, but it’s about making sure that multiplayer fits in with the lore of the world and it feels right,” says Pears.

Pears also suggests the mode could have ties to the game’s story. Additionally, he emphasizes the importance of doing R&D to make sure adding multiplayer not only makes sense for Cyberpunk 2077, but also for CD Projekt Red.

“We’ve still got work going on and we’re hiring to make sure that we get the right people for the job,” Pears continues. “The main focus is still single-player right now and we’re making sure that people understand that this world is more than big enough for single-player.”

CD Projekt Red announced the mode’s development earlier this month and said it’s left the R&D phase. Additionally, the developer said players can expect free DLC and new single-player content while we wait for the multiplayer mode’s release. There are also eight multiplayer specific job listings on the developer’s website for roles such as a game designer and design director.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Google Stadia version will launch at a later date. The game is available for preorder on Amazon now.
