While the title will only have a single player mode when it is released in April 2020, the developer has now confirmed multiplayer will arrive at some point after post-launch solo content.

Taking to social media, the company announced on TWitter: "Until now, the only thing we said about multi was that it was in R&D.

"As we're getting closer to launching 'single player' 'Cyberpunk 2077' in Apr. 2020, we'd like to confirm that multiplayer's in the works!"

While CD Projekt Red is now officially recruiting for team members to help make the feature a reality, the company has detailed the time frame for its plans.

In a follow-up tweet, the company noted: "The plan for now is to deliver 'Cyberpunk 2077' in April, then follow up with DLCs (free!) and single player content, and - once we're done - invite you for some multiplayer action."

The exciting announcement comes after it was revealed gamers will have the chance to go for non-lethal playthroughs.

Quest designer Philipp Weber told fans: "You can finish the whole game, you can finish the quests without killing a single person...

"[But] the thing is, Night City isn't a very peaceful place, so you can never play like a full pacifist who is never engaging in any kind of combat because people will attack you sometimes.

"But you can choose to not kill them. Like in real life, sometimes if there's attacks, you don't immediately kill everyone; you can solve situations in different ways."
