Despite this, there is still work that has to be done in regards to the DLC, the game’s Paid expansions as well as it’s multiplayer mode, all of which will be added on following the game’s release.
That being said, more work has been put on the shoulders of the game developers. This led to CD Projekt Red to make the controversial decision to institute mandatory weekend work after they said that such things would not happen.
Adam Badowski, studio head of CD Projekt Red responded as saying that the decision was “one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make” and that the developers of the game will be “well compensated for every extra hour they put in.”
This news is following the recent leak of the Night City map, as well as the new trailer featuring Keanu Reeves, set to Billie Eilish’s song “Bad Guy”. According to IGN which has so far spent a total of 4hours playing the game, they released this statement:
“Cyberpunk 2077 feels like the spiritual successor to Warren Spector’s legendary original, Hall-of-Fame-inducted Deus Ex, and I cannot personally pay it a higher compliment than that. It just might somehow live up to the years of hype.”
With much anticipation spanning over decades for this game’s release, and for the most part outstanding reviews, we can only imagine how good this game will be upon its release.
