While Cyberpunk 2077 is a single-player game, CD Projekt Red does have a team “messing around with a multiplayer portion,” although its addition to the much anticipated title is not guaranteed.
Speaking to Tom Phillips at Eurogamer during Gamescom 2019, CD Projekt Red senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers discussed how there is a small team testing out different types of multiplayer in R&D, but “there was no pressure to force something which did not feel right.”
“We are doing R&D into multiplayer but we’re focusing on single-player experience, and that’s what you’ll get in 2020,” Jonkers said. “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.”
