Cyberpunk 2077 is probably one of the most anticipated games coming next year from The Witcher developer CD Projekt RED. At Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference, the team debuted a new trailer along with the April 16, 2020 release date.
The game is a first-person shooter which takes place in an open-world environment, however, it seems that there's a multiplayer mode in the works. According to an interview between CD Projekt's President Adam Kiciński and Polish outlet Bankier, there's a lot in the pipeline. You can read a translated excerpt from the interview below.
'We're working on three Cyberpunk things over the main game... These are three teams. We are also working on Gwent... So we have five working teams, three working on Cyberpunk.' The president added that one of the teams working on Cyberpunk projects... has about forty people. Kiciński reported that the development of the studio... is associated with the work on the multiplayer mode of Cyberpunk 2077.
It's unclear what the other projects are, but they may be revealed soon. Before Cyberpunk 2077 was revealed, there were rumors floating around that it featured multiplayer. It seems like it's going to happen after the game launches. As with any interview, keep in mind that there could've been a miscommunication. We've reached out to CD Projekt for clarification and shall update you as soon as we receive a response.
