If you hope so Cyberpunk 2077 movie You’ll see its promised multiplayer features sometime soon…you just might be better off Waiting for the sequel to the game. In this hot mess of epic CyberpunkThe Sharp Fall and final redemption arc, CD Projekt Red had its hands full on digital tinkeringHoles in Night City. Thanks to some recent comments from an interview with CDPR’s acting director of narrative and lead quest designer Philip Weber, we now know why it took so long – and why we’re unlikely to see the legendary multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077 movie.

Cyberpunk 2077 movie Released in December of 2020, you probably know the story by now: With a level of hype rivaled by few other games, the release was a technical disaster with unfulfilled promises amid bugs and glitches. But apart from several fixes to the foundation of the game engine and its messy code, it was always expected that the game would receive a multiplayer mode afterLaunch based on previous comments. Although recent developments have indicated this CDPR is more or less ready to go 2077 (Although it’s far from finished Cyberpunk franchise), it was anyone’s guess as to what’s going on with the multiplayer. But as we now know, the demands of getting it 2077 to a playable state – which is, in fact, playable these daysTeam play has been completely postponed.

in meeting with EurogamerRobert PurchesWeber gave some of the most direct commentary on the series CyberpunkMultiplayer we’ve heard about it a while back:

“[Fixing Cyberpunk 2077 after launch] Means other R&D projects should disappear. with Cyberpunkwe wanted to do a lot of things at the same time, and we just needed to really focus and say, “Okay, what’s the important part? Yeah, we’re going to make this part really good.”

Although all we really had to do when it came to guess what 2077It will be multiplayer It was our imagination and some The clues are from the datamines, it is not clear what this situation would have presented. It is easy to guess that it will be something similar GTA Online or even Fallout 76but that’s all we have: speculation.

Transition from 2077Weber said the original multiplayer plans are part of CDPR doubling down on its commitment to “a single-player, story-driven, triple-A RPG.”“TStill studio It expects multiplayer to be a part of its games in the futureanyway.

“What is changing is our long-term approach to the Internet, and by that we mean ensuring that we are properly prepared to implement online elements into our games where they make sense. We don’t want to overplay or lose our single-player DNA. We want to take measured steps to build strong online capabilities.” Weber added Eurogamer.

So pour one for it 2077Multiplayer like never before. It’s hardly a surprise when you think about it Cyberpunkstruggle. While I love a good team play as much as anyone, the solo single player I tend to be more than happy to hear CDPR’s priorities will focus on narrative and solo outings.
