For now, in principle and if everything goes well, until February 2021 there will be no news about the multiplayer of Cyberpunk 2077.
There was a lot of expectation about what an online multiplayer mode could represent for Cyberpunk 2077. Their world was seen as one full of possibilities for adventure and exploration with friends. The idea of a new GTA Online was appealing to both its fans and CD Projekt, aware that GTA: O has generated millions of dollars. However, that wave of excitement seems to have dissipated after the tsunami of technical problems and disappointed customers. In the face of this, CD Projekt Red has been clear with its intention not to talk about multiplayer for a while.
In a meeting with her investors (which increasingly seems to be like a duel to the death between CDPR and its very angry collaborators), the developer of Cyberpunk 2077 was asked about the status of its multiplayer mode. After all, surely several investors were hoping that it could exit soon to guarantee them greater returns. Faced with this question, Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt Red replied:
For now, please let us control this situation and allow us to make some additional assessments. Multiplayer is too far for us; We don’t know when yet and right now we are focused on improving Cyberpunk 2077 . We will see that early next year.
It makes sense since when your investors are looking to sue you because your stock crashed, that’s perhaps more worrisome than releasing more content for a broken game. It should be noted that CD Projekt Red’s stock has fallen at least 40% since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. No one should be happy about that. This multiplayer will most likely release eventually, but we’ll have to wait for more CP2077 patches and players to forget about the controversy a bit.
