Putting all speculations to rest, leading Polish video games studio CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has finally confirmed in a tweet recently that their upcoming role-playing title Cyberpunk 2077 will certainly have a multiplayer mode, but not when it launches next year. It will be added sometime after the release.
While making the announcement, the company explained that once they are done releasing a series of planned free DLCs and additional single-player downloadable content, they will gear up to dish out some multiplayer actor.
2/2 The plan for now is to deliver Cyberpunk 2077 in April, then follow up with DLCs (free!) and single player content, and — once we’re done — invite you for some multiplayer action.

In another recent developments, CDPR launched a new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay trailer, which was streamed live from Warsaw on August 30, showcasing a 14-minute edit of the nearly hour-long demo on its official Twitch and Mixer channels. The footage gives us a good peek at the in-game Johnny Silverhand (actor Keanu Reeves’ character) – certainly one of the biggest highlights of the video.
Yet another recent update underlined that the first-person RPG is coming to Google Stadia. During its Stadia Connect presentation at the beginning of Gamescom 2019, Google made the big announcement. It has also been shared that players will have the power to create their character, thus giving a new shape to their gameplay altogether.
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia on April 16, 2020.
