Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel Could Add Multiplayer In Some Form

The original Cyberpunk also had plans for multiplayer, fans will no doubt recall.


The Cyberpunk 2077 sequel could include a multiplayer element. CD Projekt joint CEO Adam Badowski told Reuters that the Polish studio is considering putting multiplayer elements in the sequel, though nothing has been decided yet and the game remains in the conceptual phase.

It's natural and expected that, at this early stages of development, a developer would be exploring possibilities before production begins in earnest.

Badowski did not share any further information about possibilities for multiplayer in the Cyberpunk sequel. It's possible it could be in the form of co-op, PvP, or some other form of multiplayer.

As fans surely recall, CD Projekt was planning an entire multiplayer Cyberpunk spin-off but the company backtracked and shifted focus to improving the main game, which launched with a raft of issues in December 2020.

The Cyberpunk 2077 sequel is in development at CD Projekt's new office in the Boston area and the game is in the works under the code name Orion. The "core team" that made Cyberpunk 2077 is relocating to Boston to work on the sequel alongside teams in Vancouver and Warsaw.

Cyberpunk 2077 had a difficult launch, but the studio stuck with it and continually updated and expanded upon the game. It's now sold more than 25 million copies, with its Phantom Liberty expansion shifting more than 3 million units.

In addition to the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, CD Projekt is developing The Witcher 4 and a remake of the original Witcher, among other things.
