CD Projekt Red is at the moment exploring what multiplayer may appear to be in Cyberpunk 2077.

At gamescom this week, CD Projekt Red has been exhibiting a tonne of Cyberpunk 2077. Attendees received to see the game’s behind-closed-doors E3 demo, and the remainder of us poured over new screenshots.

Although all of that’s clearly specializing in the single-player marketing campaign, CD Projekt Red’s earlier shaky answers on the potential for including multiplayer to Cyberpunk 2077 invited extra questions

“We are doing R&D into multiplayer but we’re focusing on single-player experience, and that’s what you’ll get in 2020,” senior idea artist Marthe Jonkers informed Eurogamer.

“It doesn’t mean we’re saying no multiplayer, but it doesn’t mean we’re saying yes either. It’s still an R&D phase.”

Whatever that finally ends up being, nonetheless, Jonkers pressured that it must be match.

“The single-player experience, it all fits together. We’re not just going to slap some [multiplayer] feature in and that’ll be it,” he mentioned.

“Immersion is super important for us and we have to make sure everything fits together. It’s possible if it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t fit. We would never make anything that’s not at least The Witcher standard for Cyberpunk.”

It seems like CD Projekt Red is genuinely nonetheless attempting to outline what Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer would even be, so it’s a good guess the mode – ought to it ever materialise – received’t be there on the game’s launch.

Cyberpunk 2077 is out April 16 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
