Work is also underway on a spin-off of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and several unannounced projects in concept phase.

News | Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer may still be in development

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.

News | New major Cyberpunk 2077 patch postponed

Patch 1.2 voor Cyberpunk 2077 is uitgesteld naar de tweede helft van maart.

The patch should have been released soon, but CD Projekt Red has announced via Twitter that it needs a little more time for the patch. The developer dedicates that to the recent hack on the studio.

“We were keen to release patch 1.2 in the timeframe we indicated first, but the recent cyberattack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and the massive scale of the update means this isn’t going to happen – we need a little more time.”

Bloomberg sheds more light on the postponement. According to a report from the website, several CD Projekt Red employees have been unable to access their workstation for two weeks because of the hack.

Patch 1.2 moet groter worden dan de in januari uitgebrachte patch 1.1. Het is nog niet bekend wat er precies wordt veranderd met de patch, maar hoogstwaarschijnlijk moeten er diverse bugs mee opgelost worden. Patch 1.1 deed dat ook al, maar voegde per ongeluk ook een nieuwe bug toe.
