CD Projekt RED Wants Its Cyberpunk Games To Have A “Similar Evolution” To How The Witcher Games Evolved

Going back and playing the first two games in The Witcher series definitely gets harder with each new year. In so many ways they’re dated, but they provided a foundation for what became known as one of the best RPGs ever, The Witcher 3.

Considering that on The Witcher 3 alone, CD Projekt RED was able to grow to become a much bigger studio and publisher to the point where it has multiple projects on the go, that’s quite the glow up.

So it would be great, in the eyes of the studio and narrative director Igor Sarzyński if its Cyberpunk series had the same kind of evolution.

“Consider The Witcher games and how much they changed with each installment. We want a similar evolution here.” said Sarzyński in a recent interview with PC Gamer.

“Cyberpunk 2077 was our first venture into a futuristic sci-fi world with a ton of new gameplay mechanics, narrative tone, themes, and art direction. Some of the stuff worked almost right out of the box, such as the art, city design, music, interactive scene systems, playstyles.

Other aspects took more time to get right, like character progression, NPC interactivity, and optimization. That’s natural; it’s impossible to nail everything on your first try.

Now with all the game elements iterated and working well, we’ll focus on connecting them even tighter and creating a coherent, total immersion experience.”

That all sounds very exciting for the studio’s future projects, particularly the Cyberpunk sequel, though no matter what, fans would likely just prefer that the game will at least work, whenever it does launch.
