Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED recently had a strong critical and commercial success with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and while its next venture Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be revealed till 2017, the developer is very excited internally about its potential.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski recently spoke to IGN about the same and revealed that, “The core team is working The Witcher 3′s expansions, but more and more people are moving over onto Cyberpunk.”

Why tease Cyberpunk 2077 if it was going to take so long to release? According to Iwinski, the initial teaser came about to test the reaction of gamers.

“We released the Cyberpunk teaser trailer because we wanted to see how gamers felt about it. We were super excited about the project internally, but what if it wasn’t the right thing [for us]? But the response has been incredible. Now it’s just up to us to deliver. We’re hard at work on it.”

    I agree with a long wait until they reveal anything about this game. This isnt just directed towards CD Projekt but all game developers. I am getting tired of them showing gameplay and it looking amazing then on release it looks nothing like it did because they realized that it couldnt be done effectively. CD Projekt got a lot of flack for it and rightfully so. They are at least learning from that and hopefully they wont show to the public something they cant deliver on.

    I know graphics arent the most important thing but the whole arguement “i rather have good gameplay than better graphics” is kind of a cop out. In this day in age you shouldnt have to chose between gameplay and graphics being good. with the amount of money some of these games have for development you should be able to have your cake and eat it too.

    It boils down to game publishers pushing (in most cases) unrealistic release dates and game developers being basically treated like slaves in a lot of cases. The amount of money they make and some of the hours they work are completely ridiculous. Im actually shocked they havent unionized yet because this is actually a time in todays day in age another union would be a good thing

    Off topic I know but i do think I good deal on the way game developers are treated and paid is one reason games dont ever look as good as they should. Its so very hard to take pride in your work when you are treated and paid so miserably
