Cyberpunk 2077 will have 'multiplayer features,' says CD Projekt Red

Futuristic role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 will include "multiplayer features," developer CD Projekt Red has told Eurogamer.

None of CD Projekt's Red's The Witcher games had multiplayer modes, and it is currently unknown if it will be included in upcoming title The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Studio managing director Adam Badowski confirmed with Eurogamer that current plans for Cyberpunk 2077 include multiplayer.

"It will be a story-based RPG experience with amazing single-player playthroughs, but we're going to add multiplayer features," he said.

Badowski said the game is still in the beginning stages of development, but the studio plans to eventually make the team working on Cyberpunk 2077 as big as that working on The Witcher 3. The team is "smaller right now" during the game's prototyping stage so it's easier to manage, Badowski said.

"It's the crucial moment for Cyberpunk, because we have tons of ideas and we need to have the perfect direction and we have to be in-line with the global vision of the game," he said.

"We need to have precise, good, well-organised strike teams for that," he added. "The guys are working together brainstorming a lot, so a smaller team is better. And then we will go out to full production speed."

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently slated to be released in 2015.
