Cyberpunk 2077's Multiplayer Mode Will Possibly Launch After 2021
Following Cyberpunk 2077's delay, developer CD Projekt Red has revealed the multiplayer expansion will likely launch after 2021.
Following the delay of Cyberpunk 2077, one thing that’s come into question is when the game’s multiplayer mode will launch. In a report from IGN, CD Projekt Red has confirmed the mode probably won’t launch till after 2021.
“Given the expected release of Cyberpunk 2077 in September, and speaking of a series of events we expect to occur after that date, 2021 appears unlikely as a release date for the Cyberpunk multiplayer,” says Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt Red’s SVP of Business Development and Member of the Board in a conference call.
Nowakowski also confirms the other triple A title they were working on alongside Cyberpunk 2077 was its multiplayer mode. Additionally, the developer confirms that while they’re thinking about the next generation consoles, the team will focus on the current generation consoles for Cyberpunk.
The development of the game’s multiplayer mode was confirmed back in September and to launch sometime after the single player released. Additionally, CD Projekt Red confirmed the game will receive free DLC followed by the multiplayer mode.
Cyberpunk‘s delay was announced this afternoon in a tweet from CD Projekt Red’s Twitter. “We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done.” They go onto say Cyberpunk is “our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.” The game’s delay follows several high profile game delays including the Final Fantasy VII remake and Marvel’s Avengers.
