Over the last week or so, we've received a deluge of new information, some of which has surprised fans and critics alike. We now know that Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person game, and that there will be romance options. One question that many fans are still asking is whether or not Cyberpunk 2077 will have Multiplayer. We've pulled together everything we could find on the matter and put it into the following guide.
We've been busy building guides for every aspect of Cyberpunk 2077 we know about so far. You can check them out via our Cyberpunk 2077 Guides hub, where you'll find details on how romance works in the game, some info on the setting of Cyberpunk 2077 and more.
Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer
Given that, historically at least, CD Projekt Red has focused on single-player experiences, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that Cyberpunk 2077 would be the same. Over the last week or so, though, there have been some comments and details which might point to some multiplayer functionality in the game. It's worth noting that while the game is very much still in development, aspects of gameplay and what features will be included at launch are subject to change. Here's what we know about Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer at present.
Will Cyberpunk 2077 Have Multiplayer?
Leading up to E3 2018, it was pretty much universally expected that Cyberpunk 2077 would be an entirely single-player experience. Recent comments from Quest Designer Patrick Mills have raised the prospect of the game having some sort of multiplayer component.
Speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, Mills revealed that while Cyberpunk 2077 will launch as an entirely single -player experience, the team at CD Projekt Red are researching whether the game could have a multiplayer component:
We have multiplayer in R&D, but the game we're shipping to you, the game you're going to buy is the single-player experience. That's really what we're concentrating on now, the single-player RPG experience. That's what we want to nail down before we start looking at any of these other things.
While this does raise some interesting questions surrounding the game, it's worth pointing out that Mills is being very cautious and not making any promises.
What Could Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer be Like
We don't have any official details on a multiplayer component to Cyberpunk 2077, but we can speculate on what it might be like. The game was recently revealed to be a first-person game, with a heavy emphasis on FPS gameplay. This would be a great fit for an online experience, with players battling it out in a more traditional online shooter arena. There's also the possibility for a GTA Online style game, with players meeting up in a shared world.
We'll have to wait to know for sure whether or not Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiplayer. For now, you can head over to our Cyberpunk Character Creation and Class Guide for details on how both systems will work in the game.
