The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red revealed Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 2018. First to audiences at Microsoft's Xbox E3 2018 showcase with a trailer and then behind closed doors for select members of the press. At the time, CD Projekt Red claimed that Cyberpunk 2077 would be a single-player game at launch with multiplayer under consideration. Now it seems to be laying the groundwork for Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer thanks to job listings spotted on the company's website. One of them is for a network programmer and the other for a senior technology programmer both with the Cyberpunk 2077 tag. A third, for a multiplayer designer albeit without the Cyberpunk 2077 tag is also present on the site as well.
Furthermore, CD Projekt Red is looking for candidates with experience in multiplayer shooters, lending credence to the possibility of Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer down the line.
"We have multiplayer in R&D, but the game we're shipping to you, the game you're going to buy is the single-player experience. That's really what we're concentrating on now, the single-player RPG experience. That's what we want to nail down before we start looking at any of these other things," said the game's quest designer, Patrick Mills to Eurogamer.
Previously, the Cyberpunk 2077 developer confirmed that the game would be coming to the PS5, next Xbox, PC, and current generation consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One which also gives a hint as to when you can expect the game. As for the game's private E3 2018 demo, CD Projekt Red stated it was running on extremely high-end PC hardware, including an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti, an Intel Core i7 8700K, and 32GB RAM. Here they are in full.
