CD Projekt Red have confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer and true next-gen version have also been delayed proportionally to the delay of the game's release date. The next-gen upgrade is expected in 2021 while multiplayer is still far away.
As you may know, yesterday CD Projekt Red officially announced that their highly-anticipated title Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed once again , this time to November 19, 2020.
The reason for the delay is simple, the developers need more time to balance the game and fix various bugs that are the result of various and complex systems that the team built for Cyberpunk 2077.
Shortly after the announcement of the new release date, CD Projekt Red held a teleconference with analysts where they shared a couple of new information regarding the multiplayer and next-gen version of the game.
Michal Nowakowski, member of the board of CD Projekt confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer release has also been delayed proportionally to the delay of the game's release date. Furthermore, the game's true next-gen version for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will also arrive a bit later than expected. However, the game will be playable on the new consoles thanks to backwards compatibility. The good news is that the next-gen upgrade will be free on both consoles.
Nowakowski also mentioned the expansions. The first one is set to arrive sometime next year but a specific date has not been shared as expected. The full reveal of expansions should be coming soon, though.
