It’s been the first question that all of us came up with when Cyberpunk 2077 was announced, is it a multiplayer game? In fact, the dream of many of us would have become true if it was an MMORPG. CD Projekt Red has been avoiding answering that question for a while, but today, at last, we have the confirmation: Cyberpunk 2077 will have a multiplayer mode, and it’s already in the works. Unfortunately, it won’t be ready by the release date of the game, and we will have to wait for a while before we get to play it.

CD Projekt Red has chosen Twitter to reveal all that, and it has taken advantage of the opportunity to reveal a bit of the planned schedule for Cyberpunk 2077 after launch.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches in April 2020. After that, we will get a couple of free DLCs and then they will focus on the multiplayer aspect of the game. We are guessing that we may see multiplayer mode by the end of 2020 or maybe in 2021. A similar thing happened with Red Dead Redemption 2. The single-player portion was released first, and a few months later we could enjoy the multiplayer component of the game, Red Dead Online.

So far, CD Project Red is well known for its excellent single-player games; you can take a look at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt if you want proof of that. It is yet to be revealed what kind of approach will the developers take regarding the multiplayer mode in Cyberpunk 2077. If we consider what we know about the game so far, there is more than enough potential for it in the form of cooperative missions, but it would be great to see some kind of PvP. Playing as mercs hired by enemy factions to achieve objectives that oppose each other would be quite interesting and opens a world of possibilities.
