CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 is being moved to September, but they’re not done yet, the standalone multiplayer will release after 2021.
During a Q&A with investors, CD Projekt Red said that the standalone multiplayer of Cyberpunk 2077 is also being delayed, and that we shouldn't expect to see it until after 2021.
During the call they also confirmed that the previously mentioned AAA project they are working on is indeed the Cyberpunk multiplayer. It is being developed in parallel with the singleplayer game. They mentioned that the project was going well until recently, so it is being moved for a post 2021 launch.
"Given the expected release of Cyberpunk 2077 in September, and the series of events which we expect to occur after that stage, 2021 appears unlikely as a release date for Cyberpunk multiplayer," SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski said.
This also means that hands-on events are also going to get pushed back, but they confirmed they will have a "presence" at both E3 and Gamescom.
Even though things are getting delayed, they do feel confident about the new release date. "We pretty much know where we stand, and which aspects of the game will still require work," Nowakowski said, "We're confident the game will be released on the 17th of September."
