As part of a wide-ranging CD Projekt strategy update, president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński said the company has “reconsidered” its plans for the game, which may or may not have been cancelled, at least in its original form.

CD Projekt suggested in January 2020 that its Cyberpunk multiplayer project would be its own “triple-A” release rather than a Cyberpunk 2077 add-on.

Kiciński:

Previously we hinted that our next triple-A would be a multiplayer Cyberpunk game, but we have decided to reconsider this now. Given our new more systematic and agile approach, instead of primarily focusing on one big online experience or game, we are focusing on bringing online into all of our franchises one day.

 
Good.

MP would have sucked and I don't see how it would have worked in the game.

The open world is really window dressing. I am not shitting on the game I enjoyed it once you finally get past the initial starting phase. But I just couldn't imagine MP in it. I would rather they focus on post launch single player content that they promised, but I have a feeling we are not going to see much of that.

Maybe a BR type mode could work in this type of game. That would be the one interesting way to make it work. 100 player BR in the open world, kill everyone else.

Makes sense considering it would have to be a separate executable/package anyway considering how frequently they would need to update the client for a proper modern online experience.

lol!
I forgot about that game. I never hear anyone talking about it. Ill play it one day way down the road when its $15 or something.
 
I don’t see a need for MP in the game at all. I do see a need for a fully functional game in the first place.
