Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer will probably release sometime in 2022, CD Projekt Red confirmed in the latest investor call. At the moment, 2021 release feels very unlikely according to the devs.
Last night, CD Projekt Red released a statement that disappointed many Cyberpunk 2077 fans. The game has been officially delayed to September 2020. To be honest, CD Projekt Red should take all the time in the world to make Cyberpunk 2077 one of the best games of all time and another five months of waiting is not such a big deal since we have waited for more than seven years now.
Anyway, the delay is a proper chain reaction and it also means that some other projects have been put on hold. One of them is Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer, which will not release before 2022 according to CD Projekt Red.
In an investors call, the developer confirmed that 2021 release window appears very unlikely for the launch of the multiplayer part of the game. This means that 2022 is the likeliest release window for the mode, which will arrive for free to everyone.
CD Projekt Red also released another interesting detail about multiplayer. They said that the mode will be a AAA experience of its own, meaning that we can expect something similar to Rockstar's GTA Online in terms of size and support.
This sounds pretty great and it is another reason to be excited for Cyberpunk 2077 even after the latest delay.
Cyberpunk 2077 is officially hitting the shelves on 17 September 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. The game should also end up on the next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X but CD Projekt Red are yet to officially confirm this.
