That’s at least according Tyler McVicker, who datamined Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.3 and uncovered a number of interesting references in the game’s executable to multiplayer and expansions.
Two expansions were uncovered in the game’s files, with mention of multiplayer gyms and numerous tests. In addition ‘old’ multiplayer modes are also mentioned, which is presumably a reference to CDPR’s previous plans for a Cyberpunk online release.
CDPR revealed back in March that it had ‘reconsidered’ plans for a Cyberpunk multiplayer mode, and has instead focussed on patching the main game for PS4 and Xbox One. The multiplayer was previously described as “a separate dedicated production, a big production — we think about it as a standalone product.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was released in December 2020 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, although the game’s performance on consoles was plagued by bugs and glitches. Back in June, CDPR revealed that Cyberpunk 2077’s performance had reached a ‘satisfactory level.’
