CD Projekt RED: Cyberpunk 2077 Is More Ambitious Than The Witcher 3
Since its disclosure in 2012, Cyberpunk 2077 has become one of the most anticipated games for players. After watching CD Projekt RED’s work on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, bets on the new RPG increased. Now, the studio says that this project is more ambitious than the story of Geralt of Rivia.
Thanks to the information from PC Gamer, we know that CD Projekt RED spoke briefly about Cyberpunk 2077 during the Pareto Securities Gaming seminar. The studio said that the adventure they prepare will surpass any title they have worked on so far.
“Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious,” said studio director Adam Kicinski. “Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it’s very appealing to players, not only RPG players—but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It’s handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay.”
“Great game, more ambitious than Witcher 3, and we believe that we can aim [at] more ambitious business goals as well—of course, still having gamer-centric focus and quality focus as a main priority,” he added.
In the same event, Kicinski talked about the possibility of watching The Witcher 4. The manager was very clear and noted that a quarter is not contemplated by the studio, but you can always explore the universe of The Witcher in a new game.
“We can’t create Witcher 4, because that was a trilogy from the beginning,” he said. “No one said that one day we won’t decide to develop something in the Witcher universe. But now we’re focusing on Cyberpunk and Gwent.”
Recently, CD Projekt RED said it will show Cyberpunk 2077 content until it is ready. The studio will be present in E3 2018, so there are many possibilities to see a new trailer or the first gameplay. It will be a matter of waiting to get new information soon.
