Cyberpunk 2077 will be a single player RPG at launch, according to CD Project Red. Since its trailer, it’s looked like that would be the case. However, that doesn’t mean that the game won’t have multiplayer in the future. Now, the developers have confirmed that the game will launch as a single player.
However, the studio hasn’t said why exactly there wasn’t any multiplayer in the game. That being said, it looks likely that it will eventually come to the game.
Single Player RPG
In an interview with EuroGamer, CD Project Red confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will ship single player, but the developers are actively working on multiplayer. Quest designer Patrick Mills spoke to EuroGamer, saying:
“We have multiplayer in R&D, but the game we’re shipping to you, the game you’re going to buy is the single-player experience. That’s really what we’re concentrating on now, the single-player RPG experience. That’s what we want to nail down before we start looking at any of these other things.”
Mr. Mills also said that during the game’s development, the focus was on a single player campaign. Multiplayer was a secondary consideration. Ask about a post-launch multiplayer, he said that there weren’t any promises, but he did make some statements about the single-player campaign, saying:
“Maybe, no promises. Nothing at launch. At launch we’re concentrating on the single-player game. That’s what we want to give you…You can expect a variety of things. In the Cyberpunk world there are these people called Fixers. The thing about Fixers is they’re the brokers of the mercenary life. They’re the ones who arrange for mercenaries to be brought in to solve problems. You’re going to get some of those jobs from talking to Fixers.”
