If you had played the previously released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from CD Projekt RED and had a tough time going through the full open world, let us tell you that it will be nothing compared to the developers have in mind for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
While the sci-fi RPG title was originally announced in 2012, the Polish outlet decided to remain quiet on the details of the game. However, now CD Projekt RED has come out in the open with the claim that the game is the biggest ever the studio has ever made.
"Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before," visual effects artist Jose Teixeira told MCV. "Far, far bigger. "We're really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size and problems we encounter."
Teixeira stated that The Witcher 3's capacity has helped the studio to distill its open-world formula for Cyberpunk 2077. "The Witcher helped Cyberpunk quite a bit, because the game got so big and so complex that it really taught us," he explained. "We really didn't know what was going to happen."
"If anything, working on The Witcher 3 was a really good and often brutal learning experience. Cyberpunk is going to benefit greatly from it. I can almost guarantee it."
"I have a lot of things that I want to change and do better the next time around, and I can guarantee that almost everyone in that studio has something that they go 'I did this, this time, next time I can do it differently, I can do it better'," he added.
That being said, we are still awaiting a solid release date for Cyberpunk 2077.
Stay tuned for more updates!
