Developer CD Projekt Red believes that Cyberpunk 2077 will eventually be known as a very good game.
That reports director Adam Kiesinski in an interview with the Polish newspaper Republic. “Cyberpunk 2077 is the largest, most ambitious and most complex project in our twenty-seven year history. We have tried to push our limits in almost every aspect, just as we have done with every game of The Witcher.”
He continued, “Launching a new franchise is fraught with challenges and risks, especially when the concept is very complex. We have created a huge, vibrant and futuristic city called Night City, where non-linear stories are told. From many sides, but not everything went as expected. That said, we’ve created a lot of awareness about Cyberpunk. There are fans of the universe and the characters all over the world.”
Cyberpunk 2077 at launch was denounced by the press and many gamers due to various bugs and other issues. The game has been removed from the PlayStation Store for some time. However, Kiciński believes that the game’s reputation will ultimately be positive: “We believe 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 the hardware gets more and more powerful and we continue to improve the game.”
Next year, there will be more updates to the game, as well as a release for new game consoles from Sony and Microsoft. “We learned a lot from the original version. We’ve been pushed back and motivated to make changes that will ultimately make us better.”
In the same interview, Kiciński also noted that CD Projekt Red wants to remain an independent developer. “We are not looking for a strategic investor either.”
