Cyberpunk 2077 will only launch with a single-player campaign, but a multiplayer component isn’t out of the question.
From Eurogamer’s extensive Cyberpunk 2077 coverage at this year’s E3, fans learned that developer CD Projekt RED is focusing first and foremost on the game’s single-player campaign. In an interview with quest designer Patrick Mills, Eurogamer asked if Cyberpunk is a purely single-player game, to which Mills responded “yes, it is.” Eurogamer inquired about any potential for multiplayer at all, leading Mills to elaborate that the developer is kicking around some ideas, but none will be ready for launch.
“We have multiplayer in R&D,” Mills explained, “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.”
Eurogamer pressed for confirmation about multiplayer content dropping after launch, but Mills wouldn’t budge.
“Maybe, no promises. Nothing at launch. At launch we’re concentrating on the single-player game. That’s what we want to give you.” he said.
Contrary to what many are expecting from the developer of the venerable Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077 is confirmed to play from the first-person perspective, rather than third-person. This first-person shooter RPG will feature bullet time, wall running, and other abilities available for use while exploring the game’s open-world of Night City.
Cyberpunk 2077 does not currently have a release date, but it is confirmed to be in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
