The bad news keeps coming for Cyberpunk 2077. Following yesterday’s news that the game is delayed to September, CD Projekt RED leadership including president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński held a press conference to answer questions. The studio confirmed that a 2021 release date for Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer is “unlikely.” The release date “will probably move beyond 2021,” Kiciński said.
Additionally, the press conference made it clear that rumors about CD Projekt RED working on another AAA title are not actually true. When asked if the studio is working on any AAA games besides Cyberpunk and its multiplayer, Kiciński confirmed that the only “AAA we’re working on in parallel [to Cyberpunk 2077] is Cyberpunk Multiplayer.”
The studio has put all their energy and resources into refining the single-player and creating a decent multiplayer. We can assume that rumors of an unknown AAA unknown project referred to Cyberpunk’s multiplayer mode, which makes perfect sense. Also, it’s easy to conjecture that if people are referring to this multiplayer as an AAA project, we can expect something huge and extraordinary.
Apart from that, CD Projekt RED had announced last year that they are planning in the future to release a series of DLC for the single-player content. So, it seems like Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be supported for at least a few years.
