CDPR frames Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer as a ‘standalone product’


Cyberpunk 2077 is a game we’ve kept half an eyeball on over the last few years, basically entirely because of the lingering promise that it’ll eventually offer a multiplayer option – albeit one that’s at least two years away and probably more. But more details revealed during CD Projekt Red’s recent quarterly investor call sheds more light on the mode – including the fact that it’s not a mode at all.

CEO Adam Kicinski told investors that the multiplayer mode is a “standalone product” rather than a mode – in other words, it sounds more like Red Dead Online than like a multiplayer component for most single-player titles.

“So, first, we don’t call it modes. It’s a separate dedicated production, a big production. And we plan — we think about it as a standalone product. Obviously, it’s not entirely standalone as it comes from the universe of Cyberpunk and is very much related to the concept of single player Cyberpunk we — I came up with. But from our perspective, it’s — is another independent production and independent team of people works on it. And there’s — I said already we are not focusing right now on talking too much about other future products, products that are to be released after Cyberpunk. So please be with us in the first quarter of next year when we plan to share some strategy update. And I believe Cyberpunk multiplayer will be possible.”

In other Cyberpunk news, this week YouTuber Duren released his take on the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer… in World of Warcraft. It looks a bit like WildStar or parts of SWTOR, and we’re not at all sad about it. We’d play this.

I’m happy it’s separate, too many games have been ruined by trying to do too much, focussing on either side too much, better they present an awesome single player experience and an online game for those that way incline.


That was a pretty well done video, though it could’ve been better if it was done in actual WoW game. WoW characters feel out of place in world styled in the way of Cyberpunk 2077.

(grumble) I so wanted this to be an actual mmorpg. (sigh) The Wow Machinima looks more like Shadowrun. :) Which I’d love to see as an mmorpg. Shadowrun the MMORPG, make it happen people.


That trailer looks like a cool Shadowrun game I want to play.
