For the fans of Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer, this, unfortunately, means that they will probably have to wait even longer for a PvP mode, which was already expected to come not before late 2021.

Still, it seems that some details about the multiplayer were already here, hidden in the game's code.
As reported by DSOGaming, dataminers have discovered information directly from the game’s executable file which shows some details about possible multiplayer modes.
According to what has been found in the game’s executable file, that game will feature at least two multiplayer game modes.
The first one is named Heists (just like in GTA Online) and it seems to be similar to single-player missions, where a group of players will be accepting various jobs and cooperate to complete those missions.

The other discovered mode is a deathmatch mode, and it's a standard deathmatch that you can expect to see in other multiplayer games.
Other than these two modes, it dataminers reveal that the game's PvP connection might be based on P2P connections and that it won't have dedicated servers.
As explained by dataminers, "the game targets purely Peer 2 Peer connections with some host authority", but that might just be outdated information, because, obviously, the game's multiplayer as far from ready to be released.
Below, you can see everything extracted from the game’s executable files and shared by dataminers via DSOGaming.
