Cyberpunk 2077 is Single-Player, but Multiplayer is in R&D

Cyberpunk 2077 is Single-Player, but Multiplayer is in R&D

CD Projekt doesn't want to promise the open-world RPG will get a multiplayer mode.

CD Projekt Red Quest Designer Patrick Mills has Confirmed that the team is looking into multiplayer features for Cyberpunk 2077. He did reiterate, though, that the studio is making no promises that multiplayer will come to the upcoming open-world RPG, and that at launch at least, the game will be completely single-player.

The comment stems from an expansive interview that Mills did with Eurogamer, in which he discussed the game's '80s influences, the non-linearity of the story, as well as other details. After being asked whether or not there would be multiplayer in the game at all, Patrick Mills had this to say:

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.

He went on to clarify that while the team are looking into multiplayer features for the game, there were no promises on them ever coming to the game. In response to whether or not the multiplayer content would be added post-launch, Mills responded:

Maybe, no promises. Nothing at launch. At launch we're concentrating on the single-player game. That's what we want to give you.

It's interesting that CD Projekt Red is looking into how multiplayer could play into Cyberpunk 2077, though we will have to wait and see if it ever ends up actually being a part of the game. This new detail comes after a slew of new reveals about the long-awaited title. During Microsoft's Xbox E3 2018 Press Conference, we got a new trailer for the game, giving us a first look at the game's bustling open-world. Since then, additional details have started to trickle out, as CD Projekt Red delivers behind-closed-doors demos to the press.
