It’s official — multiplayer is coming to Cyberpunk 2077.
Word just got out directly from the talented folks at CD Projekt Red, after many months and years of fans asking and requesting it. It looks as though devs finally caved in, and they’ll be ushering in multiplayer into the game some time after its March 6, 2020 launch.
The upcoming AAA RPG by the esteemed Polish developer has no doubt been in the spotlight ever since its E3 2018 gameplay reveal. One year and Keanu Reeves on, the hype around Cyberpunk 2077 has skyrocketed.
The announcement of other interesting features such as the removal of gender restrictions in character creation add more nuance to the futuristic, dystopian story in Night City, which will feature (free) DLC content larger than that of The Witcher 3‘s, among other things. The eventual inclusion of multiplayer will no doubt add another layer of excitement to players looking to get into the game.
This will also be the first time CDPR will be handling a multiplayer component to their AAA titles. The Witcher 3 fared really well as a single-player experience, and as such CD Projekt Red was renowned for producing top-quality single-player games. This will no doubt be a huge departure from their usual affairs.
If they manage to pull it off successfully, Cyberpunk 2077‘s — and consequently CDPR’s — stock will rise dramatically. But for now, one can only hope. What matters first is a solid first-player experience when Cyberpunk 2077 releases on March 6, 2020 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
