Updated on July 5, 2019, to reflect that CD Projekt Red is not working on three new games but Cyberpunk 2077 related projects.

Gaming fans haven’t even gotten copies of Cyberpunk 2077 in their homes yet, but CD Projekt Red clearly has a lot of faith in the game’s world. There are three Cyberpunk projects in development including a multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077.

Twitter user Nibel shared the news, which was reported on the Polish economic site Bankier. There are a few things that may have gotten lost in the translation by Google, but it is clear that there are three Cyberpunk projects in development from three different teams. The main game, Cyberpunk 2077, is what the world is already aware of, but the second and third have only been rumors up till now. 

A team of about 40 in Wroclaw, Poland, is working on the multiplayer mode in Cyberpunk 2077. Nothing about the game has indicated anything related to multiplayer gameplay up until this point, and it is possible this multiplayer mode will be one of the major expansions to Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red’s strategy for the period between 2016 and 2021 included the release of a AAA project beyond Cyberpunk 2077 before 2021 and plans for that were unchanged as of March this year. What this new report brings to light is that the second project is also set within the Cyberpunk world. CD Projekt Red Vice President Piotr Nielubowicz says this content is being treated “as a really big and innovative project for us.”

This second major project set within the world of Cyberpunk is intriguing, especially since it will release less than two years after the release of Cyberpunk 2077.  When 2077 is released, it will have been almost five years since the release of CD Projekt Red’s last major game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Five projects total were mentioned in the Bankier report and we already know that an unannounced mobile game is being handled by Spokko, a game studio CD Projekt Red took a majority stake in last year. The other non-Cyberpunk development team is working on Gwent, a Witcher 3 spinoff card game, which just received a new Novigrad content expansion.

Cyberpunk 2077 review

Just like in our own world, everything in Cyberpunk 2077's Night City has a price.

The world is big and open enough for you to earn your keep in a wide variety of ways, but if you're pressed for time -- or just have your eye on a new weapon, piece of clothing, car, or anything else that you just can't live without -- you will want to know how you can earn that sweet cash as quick as possible.

The best Cyberpunk 2077 mods
A hacker uses a computer in Cyberpunk 2077.

Whenever a game is released on PC, you can always count on the community to do what the developers won't (or in most cases can't) and mod it in every way imaginable. This goes for good games but is especially important for games that came out in a state most wouldn't consider acceptable. For a game like Cyberpunk 2077, which has now become synonymous with terms like "rushed," "lazy," and "disaster," to name a few, mods might be your best chance at enjoying the game at all as the developers struggle to fix their game years after release.

With so many things to address, many people have attempted to make mods fixing, adding to, and improving Cyberpunk 2077. With so much to go through, it can be hard to know which mods are worth trying out to make your game run better or even just to add some fun new features to it. We've checked out all the mods we could find, ranging from performance to pure fun, so you can hack in and finally get that true cyberpunk experience you want out of Cyberpunk 2077.
