CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 made a rather big presence at E3 this year, revealing not only just a release date, but also that Hollywood actor, Keanu Reeves would also be playing a main character in the game. From what’s been said and shown, CD Projekt Red is no doubt staying true to what they have been known for, which is creating an epic story-focused game based on a single-player experience. However, Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer still isn’t being ruled out though it does seem unlikely given how the game — and CDPR — is mostly focused on delivering a narrative-driven experience.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Cyberpunk 2077’s Lead Quest Designer Paweł Sasko touched briefly upon the subject, to once again re-aafirm that the game is a single-player only experience, despite a multiplayer mode being in R&D last year.
“Yes, 100 per cent. We’re not really working on multiplayer, our sole focus is single-player. We’ll do that, then we’ll see. We’re not saying no but we’re not saying yes. If something does happen it will definitely be post-launch and that’s as much as I can say right now.” Pawel continues “I mean we’re known for good stories, amazing characters, choices and consequences. So this is something for sure we’d be going with, if anything happened regarding that. We’d avoid anything that’s not that. If we do it, it’ll be our style”
There you have it, while it isn’t 100% being ruled out we say don’t expect to see it for a long while if it does end up happening down the road. Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on April 16 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC
