After years of wait, Cyberpunk 2077 development is still “far from over”, says CD Projekt Red. The official PlayStation Youtube channel has released a video titled “Creating Cyberpunk 2077” providing us with behind the scenes information about the upcoming game.
The video is narrated by Doug Cockle who’s the voice of Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher. The video gives us information about the gameplay, development and more with little pieces of interviews with the developers.
At the end of the video, it’s revealed that the game development is “far from over” telling us that it’s not coming out anytime soon. The hype is real and keeping the positive response of players in mind, it’s going to increase further in upcoming years.
Besides that, the developers went on to talk about the years they took to discuss the game after its original announcement in 2012.
After the teaser, we kind of went dormant. There was silence for four-to-five years, which for me and my community team was very hard because, you know, people were very excited about the game, says Marcin Momot.
Level designer Miles Tost then went to explain why they have been keeping everything behind the curtains.
The reason why you can’t really go out and just show everything is because video game development is such an iterative process, right. What we have now might not be there tomorrow. So, we’ve had ideas that have died over the years, then they have been resurrected, then they died again, and now they’re back.
It has been now also revealed that the game takes place fifty years after the original game and in parallel timeline as well. This gives studio “the freedom to create a game that respected and referenced the source material”. You can watch the video here.
The game is supposedly going to be in development for years now. Luckily, Cyberpunk 2077 has been confirmed to be present at E3 2019 in June. We are expecting to hear some new information about the game or maybe another gameplay trailer at the event.
According to CD Projekt RED, there won’t be any playtests of Cyberpunk 2077, meaning that the awaiting fans will not be able to try out the game before its release date.
Despite the on-going development, the game’s marketing campaign is moving ahead including the video above from PlayStation.
Apart from when Cyberpunk 2077 is coming out, it’s confirmed to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC whenever it does.
