The 'Cyberpunk 2077' online multiplayer portion will no longer be a standalone release.
Developer CD Projekt Red has revealed the company has "reconsidered" its multiplayer plans for the game, and boss Adam Kicinski then clarified the remarks.
Speaking in a conference call after the firm's strategy update, Kicinski said: "Regarding online, we are changing our approach, so we want to have online in our future games, definitely, but step-by-step.
"So, we are working on specific features enhancing our single-player [games], but we are not working on releasing the next game [as] a big online experience. So, we will be enhancing our single-player games with online experiences.
"The only change is that we continue to work on it not as a main production line but as a supportive production line together with our single-player productions.
"But we believe that our ideas, once they will be revealed, will be very exciting for gamers as an extra experience in our world which fits our single-player games."
