Now Playing: Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer Confirmed - GS News Update

CD Projekt Red has finally come around to the idea of featuring multiplayer in Cyberpunk 2077. As far back as 2014, the studio said the game was "definitely not a multiplayer shooter," before producer Richard Borzymowski told GameSpot in an interview at Gamescom earlier this year that CD Projekt Red was "exploring multiplayer modes." A tweet from the company's official Twitter account has now announced that multiplayer is officially in the works for Cyberpunk 2077, though you shouldn't expect it to be available on release day.

"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," the second part of the tweet says.

At this early stage, there's no indication of what multiplayer will entail, so it will be interesting to see how CD Projekt Red goes about incorporating it into an open-world RPG. This will also mark the first time the studio has developed a multiplayer game aside from Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, but Cyberpunk 2077 will be an altogether different beast--unless this ends up being another CCG.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16, 2020.
