Cyberpunk 2077: When Is Multiplayer Coming?
The multiplayer component of Cyberpunk 2077 could get more news soon, but when can we expect to play it?
Cyberpunk 2077 has been available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC since December 2020, offering the full single-player Night City experience with Keanu Reeves, tons of side missions, and nearly as many bugs. Despite the game's rough edges, it's a fascinating look at the future, and CD Projekt Red has promised there will also be a Cyberpunk multiplayer experience eventually. But just when will we be able to play this, and what will it include?
When is Cyberpunk 2077 getting multiplayer?
If you were hoping to play a Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer experience soon, then we have some bad news for you: The experience likely isn't going to release until at least 2022. Though it's already playable at CD Projekt Red, significant development time remains on the project and it's being developed separately from the main game. Despite this, it will be available for free to anyone who bought Cyberpunk 2077.
Prior to Cyberpunk 2077's release, CD Projekt Red said that news on the multiplayer component would come in the first quarter of 2021. Given the problems the game has had since launch and the development timeline for other elements, such as post-launch DLC, this could also be the case for any announcements. With all eyes on the studio, it won't want to look like it's already thinking about future content if what's already there isn't working properly.
What will Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer include?
CD Projekt Red has kept the specifics on the Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer experience under wraps, but apparent leaks from dataminers suggest it could contain a heist gameplay mode. Given the crime system in place in the game already and its mix of on-foot and vehicular gameplay, this seems like a plausible inclusion. However, it has yet to be confirmed officially. It could be months before any confirmation is made.
