CD Projekt RED have released a new five minute trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 which explains the story, upgrades, and many other elements to the game. Check it out.
While the game does look amazing the upcoming release has been soured by reports of months of crunch leading to the games release. Back in March CD Projekt “more humane” approach to crunch and that it would not be mandatory, but later in the year it was revealed that had changed and that employees were required by the company to work six days a week to get the game finished.
The game was delayed back at the end of October an additional three weeks, with company bosses Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski explaining, “The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it (Xbox One/X, compatibility on Xbox Series S|X, PS4/Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia)… while working from home.”
During the recent Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire the senior quest designer on the game, Patrick K. Mills, said the following.
“The difference between a completionist run and a main story run… we do know that the main story run in Cyberpunk 2077 is slightly shorter than The Witcher 3 because we got a lot of complaints about Witcher 3’s main story just being too long.”
“Looking at the metrics, you see tremendous numbers of people played through that game really far, but never made it to the end. We want you to see the full story, so we did shorten the main story, but we have lots to do, and in terms of a completionist campaign, I just don’t have that number,” he added.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be out for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 10th December, it will be playable on Xbox Series X | S and PS5 but full on next-gen enhancements will not be there on day one.
