Another Game of the Year candidate incoming (whenever it ends up releasing)?
We still don’t know a whole lot about Cyberpunk 2077– it was announced years ago, well before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but since its announcement, The Witcher 3, along with its expansions, have been announced and released. And Cyberpunk continues to remain a complete and total enigma.
CD Projekt RED also refuse to talk a whole lot about it, although they apparently do want us assured that development on the game is coming along, and it is coming along well. In fact, in a recent investor relation Q&A session, IR Specialist Katarzyna Szulc (via NeoGAF) mentioned that Cyberpunk 2077 has currently more developers at work than The Witcher 3 during its most intensive month of development- this seems to corroborate CD Projekt RED’s previous assertions that this will be their most ambitious game yet.
If that means that we can expect the kind of incredible quality from Cyberpunk that we got with The Witcher 3 – which is legitimately a hallmark of the genre – then I say we give CD Projekt RED all the time that they want.
