Cyberpunk 2077: Fans Work on a Cancelled Feature!! [VIDEO]

A mod is in the works that could bring to life an originally planned feature that CD Projekt RED (CDPR) ultimately failed to deliver.


After Cyberpunk 2077’s horrible release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2020 despite multiple delays (the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series version didn’t arrive until much later), CDPR canceled the game’s planned multiplayer mode, which was originally a smaller project within the Polish company, and eventually abandoned the idea so the studio could focus on the core single-player experience. At the time, the studio’s Philipp Webe said that the priority was to get the main experience done well enough, and that other R&D projects had to be put on hold due to a change in priorities.

But that didn’t stop the fans, some of whom got together to unofficially make the multiplayer option in Night City a reality. They’ve been working on the mod for a year, and now we have a 9-minute video of it, embedded below. It’s still in pre-alpha, so it’s mostly in a rudimentary state, and it’s no surprise that there’s no release schedule for CyberMP, which understandably only works on PC with other PC players. The missions can’t be completed that way either, which means that in its current state the mod is only good for having fun in the city.

Speaking about the game, Platkow-Gilewski, CDPR’s Vice President of PR and Communications, said that the release of Cyberpunk 2077 was better received because after the initial good reviews, it became cool to hate the game and not know what was going on. They knew the game was great and they knew how to improve it and it took them time to do that because they had to rebuild some things in the game. So they rushed the release because the investors were very impatient…

Meanwhile, a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 is already in the works at CDPR’s Boston studio, and it may have multiplayer as standard.
