Developer CD Projekt Red thinks Cyberpunk 2077 will eventually be known as a very good game.
That reports director Adam Kiciński in an interview with The Polish newspaper Republic. “Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest, most ambitious and most intricate project in our twenty-seven-year history. We’ve tried to push our limits in almost every aspect, just like we have with every The Witcher game.”
He continued: “Releasing a new franchise is fraught with challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex. We’ve brought to life a huge, vibrant, futuristic city called Night City, where non-linear character storytelling takes place. proud of many aspects, but not everything went as expected. Nevertheless, we have created a lot of awareness around Cyberpunk. There are fans of the universe and the characters all over the world.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was denounced at launch by the press and many gamers because of many bugs and other issues. The game was even removed from PlayStation Store for quite some time. Still, Kiciński thinks the game’s reputation will ultimately be positive: “We think Cyberpunk 2077 will be seen as a very good game in the long run, and will continue to sell like our other games for years – especially as hardware gets more and more powerful and we keep improving the game.”
Next year there should be more updates for the game, as well as a version for the new game consoles from Sony and Microsoft. “We did learn a lot from the original release. It kicked us in the ass and motivated us to make changes that will ultimately make us better.”
In the same interview, Kiciński also indicated that CD Projekt Red wants to remain an independent developer. “We’re not looking for a strategic investor either.”
