CD Projekt RED has revealed that the story quality in Cyberpunk 2077 will eclipse that of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
In an interview Inn: Poland, which was translated by Video Games Chronicle, Story Director Marcin Blacha explained thusly: “For me everything is on a much grander scale than the stories of small human dramas presented in The Witcher.”
In addition, Blacha revealed that the team “wrote two thick book volumes of dialogue, and another whole two volumes of directorial comments to go alongside them. The texts that will not be recorded will be the same, and the words in the documentation for the game cannot be counted, but there were plenty of them too.”
This interview comes after CD Projekt RED claimed the main campaign in Cyberpunk 2077 will be shorter than The Witcher 3, but will offer more replayability.
Blacha also went on to discuss the kinds of characters he enjoys creating the most for Cyberpunk 2077. “Without going into too much detail, I can reveal that on my list of favourite heroes I have a certain prisoner who wants to achieve his life goal in one day while on release; an artificial intelligence that runs an entire taxi company; and a clever girl who stands behind the counter in an esoteric shop half the time, while also working as a nurse.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on April 16, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. CD Projekt RED’s Michal Nowakowski—Vice President of Business—already implied that the developer is not afraid of the competition from Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx, as the newest addition to the Half-Life franchise is a VR exclusive and appeals to a market niche that is still woefully underdeveloped.
