Wow! CD Projekt RED might go against the trends with their next game!
The Polish developer team has proven with its action-RPGs (The Witcher-trilogy) that there are good devs in Eastern Europe as well. (For a local, Hungarian example, we could point to NeoCore.) Cyberpunk 2077 will remain in this genre, but it will use a first-person perspective instead. However, the changes won’t stop there, if we can believe Philipp Weber, the quest designer of the game.
Weber told the German GameStar in an interview that they won’t force the players to complete the missions – they can be somewhat successful in Cyberpunk 2077 even without performing well. He also hinted at the Game Over screen – we might only see this if our protagonist named V (we have seen another V in Devil May Cry 5 recently as well… lol?) dies. The game will continue if we fail a mission, regardless of how badly we did it. For example, the game will not stop immediately if you end up getting seen in a stealth mission. That is good.
It is a serious turn if we do end up only seeing that Game Over screen if we end up biting the bullet. Cyberpunk 2077 (which will be seen at this year’s E3, as CD Projekt RED is planning to have a big show for it) is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but we have also heard that the game that has no release date yet might also be a cross-gen title, meaning it could launch on the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation, too…
