Default Cyberpunk 2077 - Multiplayer is in the Works

September 4th, 2019, 14:17
CD Project Red recruits MP specialists for Cyberpunk 2077:

1/2 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! If you feel like lending us your skills apply:-> Link

I don't get how multiplayer can work for this game, and for example for Dying Light 2, when you add decisions that can alter the game then multiplayer can ruin the experience too easily…..

I'd still prefer a witcher game similar to borderlands, you create a withcer and go take contracts with witcher pals….

Uh oh, not a good sign. Hopefully the single player experience will remain unaffected.

I think a multiplayer mode, in this game, is completely unnecessary, plain and simple. Period.

This news is just a cunning way to find out why @joxer is taking his longest break from the site for months isn't it.

Ughh, I don't like where this conversation is heading. Multiplayer seems to be the dearth of the single player experience, at least from my perspective.

Folks. FOLKS. The game development is unaffected. The game is, in fact, probably 98.5% finished except for polishing, optimization, recording all the voice lines, etc. CDPR has been very explicit about single player being their #1 and only priority for launch, including in this very announcement when they said that they are focusing on launching the game in April, putting out free DLC for it, putting out additional (paid) single-player content for it, and THEN introducing some form of multiplayer.

Relax.

Btw, somebody on Reddit mentioned a Trauma Team multiplayer mode and that actually sounds pretty cool to me (despite me almost never playing multiplayer of any kind.) Naturally, the largest contingent is clamoring for co-op through the campaign, but I think that's very unlikely. But a more self-contained, Left for Dead like mode where you and a few peeps play a Trauma Team trying to get to clients while dealing with environmental threats (gangs, etc) and possibly competing Trauma Teams, now that's something I could see working.

On the other hand Bethesda went MP with ESO and we are waiting for a SP Elder Scrolls game for many years now.

I'll be probably like GTA V online. A separate multiplayer experience to get money from the players forever. I also believe that the base game will remain unaffected. This is not EA we're talking about.

Could be fun. I also don't see it impacting the single-player at all. That's mostly finished at this point, and it sounds like the multiplayer is coming afterwards and from a separate team.

I don't have a problem with games having multiplayer. As long as it’s not a 5 hour single player campaign tacked on to an obviously multiplayer game which this obviously isn’t.

Besides this is CDPR. In a couple days they will release something saying Cyberpunk is a single player game first and foremost and everyone will rejoice and sing their praises again.

Normally, I hate MP, and it ruins SP games. But not always. I'm going with the GTA crowd here with my suspicions. I bet they're going the GTA route, which really didn't affect the SP in that game. Hopefully, they don't veer onto a path similar to Bethesda's.
