Last month, the developer behind The Witcher series and the in-development Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red, commented on the slew of bad reviews found on their Glassdoor. Now, 43 developers are talking about the realities.
Cyberpunk 2077 at PSX
Still too early for the game
It's been in development for a few years.
No, you won't see it for a while. It probably won't even come to current gen consoles. Most probably next gen.
I wish but highly unlikely.
Nope. Cyberpunk 2077 is probably not even going to be actually seen until sometime next year. I actually think at this point the game will be releasing closer to 2020, if that's not the actual release year. Which would go along nicely with the second edition of Cyberpunk 2020, the Pen & Paper RPG its based off of http://cyberpunk.wikia.com/... All of the rumors of internal staff/management issues, the 'infamous' hack, rumors of CDPR starting either pre-production or production over sometime in 2016, combined with what we haven't seen nor heard and it's looking like we're going to have to be patient, however, if CDPR can catch lightening twice in a bottle, knowing their pedigree, the wait will be worth it. The one rumor if true that does worry be slightly, would be if they actually scrapped everything, or most of it and started over last year, then again, this could be a blessing in disguise. With Witcher 3's wild success, the spotlight, along with even more pressure to deliver, has to be bearing on CDPR's shoulders and I believe they truly want to deliver what the fans want and expect, which is quality, so personally, I do not mind waiting if it means a better product.
Working the entertainment industry is bonkers. It is often relentlessly all consuming.
Will be the best game when it releases easily.
Indeed it will be. These guys are one of very few who havent given into greed
I sure wouldn't bet against it.
The union they did w/Guerilla is monumental!!
What did they do?
Story & Engine
Sounds great but what does it mean?:D
What ? When ?
Horizon had Witcher writer/s and if I'm not mistaken, the Decima was helped worked on by the 2, but really not 100% sure. If I'm off, feel free to correct me.
It was my understanding Decima was and is worked on by Guerrilla Games and Kojima Productions. I was unaware of any collaboration with CDPR.
@last-those developers were also hired for the last year or two of the development of the game. I mean don't get me wrong I'm sure they're great developers but you're literally trying to contribute a huge portion of a games design development in philosophy to two people that entered the game's development during its final years and completely ignoring that this game was in development since 2011 at Gorilla Games. I assure you ,one person did not create this entire game 😎 And I believe Horizon zero Dawn had a writer from The Fallout series, and it was a quest developer from The Witcher and a person that did cinematics. Soooo I don't believe the person in charge of some of the quest is a single human being I believe it's likely an entire team of Developers. And I have no clue what you're talking about but the engine created for Horizon zero Dawn had absolutely nothing to do with any developer from CD projekt Red.
To clarify the statement above, the company of CD Projekt Red did not work with Guerilla Games. There were employees that were hired by Guerilla Games that used to work for CD Projekt Red.
Awesome got it. Thanks for the correct info guys.
@five your 100% right. Thanks sir.
Cyperpunk 2077 is the only game I can see dethroning The Witcher 3 as the best game of the generation.
There isnt a game that can touch the witcher 3 so far this gen. No sure why you getting disagrees
@guyman : Because some people are realistic W3 is way too hyped up,.. Combat barely works ,.. because character movement is totally broken in witcher 3 ,.. It is a good game,.. but would not even make it to my top 10 this gen.
That remains to be seen. And many gamers still like Medieval role playing games like Dragon age, Diablo, Dark souls, Elders scrolls series etc. Witcher 3 is excellent not only due to gameplay and graphics but also the "setting". Look at Lord of the rings and game of thrones. No show or series I know of that has so many fans and nerds squealing at the mention of the name. Futuristic style scifi games are so numerous having medieval settings are a breath of fresh air. Like Fallout was highly acclaimed but not as popular as skyrim or oblivion. Thats just my take. Bottomline, The story setting also has a big impact on games. Horizon was one of the few futuristic games that are still excellent in setting so is final fantasy series and mass effect.
Actually, I'd beg to differ. Cyberpunk has elements of Sci Fi of course, but it's very much its own genre/sub-genre, other than games like Deus Ex, Remember Me, Dex, Shadowrun and a few others, the genre is underutilized as a whole. Also, FO4 may have not been the critical success with reviewers and gamers as Skyrim was, it actually out sold Skyrim to become the biggest financial success that Bethesda Game Studios has ever released.(*ETA: Not that this equates to a better or even good game. I liked FO4 in many ways but I was also disappointed. I contribute years of waiting, hype and questionable design decisions) I think there's plenty of room for some love for an OW story-driven Cyberpunk RPG that fans of the genre and Sci Fi have been waiting for, especially with the success of Witcher 3, selling 12+ million copies (Not too shabby!) The issue that worries me most (See: FO4), as a fan and a gamer, are the inevitable lofty expectations fans will create for themselves. In that situation, as I know from experience, you'll never make everyone happy and there's always gonna be haters. Don't get me wrong, I love Fantasy, Sci Fi and Cyberpunk, and I'm a huge CDPR/Witcher fan, I cannot freaking wait for CP2077!
Star Wars? Star Trek? Doctor Who? I'd agree that Medieval more popular though. The Witcher 3 is really quite unique. If nails everything and somehow manages to deliver an incredible story despite the scale of the game. Even the side/fetch quests are brilliantly written
