Cyberpunk 2077 Isn’t Just a Sci-Fi Witcher 3

Following the runaway success of CD Projekt RED’s sprawling RPG epic The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, all eyes have turned to the developer’s next project, the much-hyped Cyberpunk 2077, based on the tabletop role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020. The game, which has been in development since 2012, has been heralded by CD Projekt RED as “far bigger than anything else that [we have] done before”.

Lead Quest Designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz teased further details about Cyberpunk 2077 during a live streamed panel at PAX Australia, during which he revealed that the new RPG will be more than just The Witcher 3 with a sci-fi skin:

“Definitely, we want to keep the things that were good about it [the quest design system] for Cyberpunk, and basically we don’t want to change things that were working properly. So we will stick to the guidelines that were working.

I think there are things that we could have done better, so we will adjust it to Cyberpunk’s requirements. Also, it’s a completely different game, It’s obviously an RPG as well, but it has totally different systems. We need to focus on making the gameplay fun in different ways than sword fighting is.

So I think we will have to adjust, but like I said, we will try to keep all the good things that we did on The Witcher.”

The release of CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 is thought to be at least two years away, but some big reveals regarding the game could hit next March, predicts DualShockers.
