Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer (Standalone) Is The Next AAA Game, CD Projekt Red Confirms
Cyberpunk 2077 will sooner or later invite you for competitive confrontations. And it is now known that the Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer will be treated as an independent game with AAA qualities. The publication should not take place before 2022.
After previous speculations, CD Projekt announced some time ago that Cyberpunk 2077 will be expanded with a multiplayer part. However, this should not be brought to the market before 2022.
The plans have now been reinforced. As reported by a Reddit user, the competitive experience is not just an addition to the main game. Instead, CD Projekt would like to turn multiplayer of Cyberpunk 2077 into a standalone project with AAA qualities.
“CDPR’s mystery AAA title they have been talking about to shareholders since 2016 is Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer. It’s likely a standalone experience and singleplayer Cyberpunk will be fully released, expansions, and all, before the multiplayer will be out,” can be read on the Reddit thread.
The multiplayer game is to be released as soon as all the expansions for Cyberpunk 2077 have been put into circulation. Apparently, CD Projekt’s chosen approach is based a bit on the most recent games from Rockstar Games, whose multiplayer modes have been more or less decoupled from the main game and have been binding players for years with new content and promotions.
And funding seems to be in place. During the week CD Projekt announced once again that there will be microtransactions in the multiplayer part of Cyberpunk 2077. But they shouldn’t be forced on the players.
In the single-player part of Cyberpunk 2077, you don’t have to fear about any microtransactions, as CD Projekt Red confirms again: “Nothing changed. Cyberpunk 2077 is a single player game with zero microtransactions. One single purchase. No tricks. Don’t believe the clickbait.”
“Cyberpunk multiplayer/online, which is a separate project, will have some microtransactions, but we said that a year ago already. Like always, expect us treating your money with respect,” added the makers on Twitter.
Cyberpunk 2077 will hit the market on November 19, 2020, for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The versions for the two next-generation consoles of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as well as Google’s streaming service Stadia are also in the works. The launch will take place at a later date.
