Hope you weren't looking forward to it...
President Adam Kiciński made the announcement as part of a developer group strategy update (below).
“Previously we hinted that our next AAA would be a multiplayer Cyberpunk game, but we have decided to reconsider this plan given our new more systemic 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,” Kiciński said.
The announcement means one of two things, really: Cyberpunk 2077‘s multiplayer component has been cancelled, or has been delayed for retweaking. It’s not clear as yet which scenario applies to the situation.
CD Projekt Red has just released a major patch for Cyberpunk 2077 and confirmed that The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt‘s PS5 and Xbox Series S & X update will be available in the second half of 2021.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
