CD Projekt Red published a series of tweets later this day that confirm that a multiplayer mode will be added to Cyberpunk 2077 after the April 2020 launch and following a series of free, singleplayer DLCs.

The studio thus confirmed some of the rumors that were starting to spread and use the publicity around the tweets to advertise the company’s recruitment page where eight jobs for a multiplayer team are listed. Here’s the official CDPR statement:

“Until now, the only thing we said about multi was that it was in R&D. As we’re getting closer to launching ‘single player’ Cyberpunk 2077 in Apr. 2020, we’d like to confirm that multiplayer’s in the works!”

How will Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer mode will look like?

As these are literally the first official news regarding the new mode for the upcoming RPG shooter, all everyone can do regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer mode is speculate. Considering we’re talking about a FPS, it can be anything from a simple deathmatch arena to a battle royale. Or maybe they’ll put that vast world they are currently building and launch the next GTA online. Or, staying true to CDPR philosophy, they could just pull something totally unexpected.

Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer Mode Announcement

Regardless of how or what we’ll experience in the Multiplayer mode, there is good coming out of the recent confirmation. Fans reading CD Projekt Red’s senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers’ recent interview with Eurogamer who said:

“We are doing R&D into multiplayer but we’re focusing on single-player experience, and that’s what you’ll get in 2020,[…] 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.”

can now sleep better – Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer Mode is definitely a yes!
