Cyberpunk 2077 is launching in April next year as a purely single-player experience. Developer CD Projekt Red has made that clear on multiple occasions, but at the same time, it certainly hasn't shied away from the fact that multiplayer components are being explored and developed behind the scenes.
However, speaking to Eurogamer, senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers says that despite ongoing development, multiplayer may never actually make it into the game. "We're not saying no multiplayer, but it doesn't mean we're saying yes either. It's still an R&D phase," explains Jonkers.
"Immersion is super important for us and we have to make sure everything fits together. The single-player experience, it all fits together. We're not just going to slap some [multiplayer] feature in and that'll be it. It's possible if it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit," Jonkers continues.
It's not often that you get studios talking so openly about what's being worked on behind closed doors, but CD Projekt Red is clearly quite happy to let everyone know that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer may still be on the cards at some point. Again, though, we'll have to wait and see whether anything actually comes of it.
