Cyberpunk 2077: Multiplayer has been scrapped due to launch issues

Activision Blizzard: Phil Spencer pleased with acquisition progress

The numerous problems at the start of the action role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 led to the discontinuation of the multiplayer plans.

Actually, Cyberpunk 2077 should have its own multiplayer part after its release in December 2020. After the more than bumpy start of the action role-playing game, however, these plans were rejected by CD Projekt RED.

In an interview, Philipp Weber, Senior Quest Designer and coordinator of Cyberpunk 2077, revealed what exactly led to the decision and what thoughts it was based on Eurogamer:

“We really had to look at what the priorities were for cyberpunk. The priority was that the main experience for people will be in a really good state.”

“And basically, the shift in priorities meant that other R&D projects had to go. With Cyberpunk, we wanted to do a lot of things at once, and we just had to focus and say, ‘Okay, what’s the important part? Yeah, we’re going to do that part really well.’”

The Cyberpunk team is currently working on the Phantom Liberty expansion and a substantial update. Both are expected to be released before the Cyberpunk 2077 Game of the Year Edition announced for 2023.
