Modders have found mentions of a multiplayer mode in the code of the most recent Cyberpunk 2077 patch.

Tyler McVicker reports in a video that in patch 1.3, modders have found terms like “MultiplayerScanDirectory” and “MultiplayerGymsDirectory.” There were also folders that refer to ‘multi’ and ’test’. This would possibly suggest that the developer is testing a multiplayer mode internally.

It was originally intended that after the release of Cyberpunk 2077, a standalone multiplayer game set in the same virtual world would appear. Earlier this year, however, CD Projekt Red indicated that this was no longer the intention. However, there may still be a multiplayer mode for the game, although nothing has been confirmed yet.

Incidentally, the code also mentioned two expansions, called ‘ep1’ and ‘ep2’, along with about 24 free DLCs.
