A planned standalone multiplayer version of Cyberpunk 2077 is being “reconsidered,” developer CD Projekt Red says, as the company reconfigures itself for a new development structure going forward.

In a “strategy update” video posted Tuesday, CDPR joint CEO Adam Kicinski mentioned that the team had previously “hinted that our next AAA would be a multiplayer Cyberpunk game, but we have decided to reconsider this plan given our new more systematic and agile approach [to development].”
