VGC Interviews Cyberpunk 2077 Designer Max Pears

was able to get some quality time with CyberPunk 2077 designer Max Pears at the Tokyo Game Show. Even if not a fan of The Witcher 3 it can be noted that CD Projekt Red has gained quite a fan base for it’s handling of the franchise. This is a bit of an accomplishment in a time when some AAA developers have managed to either alienate or completely lose touch with their customers. They have established a proven track record for both supporting their games as well as DLC’s that can add substantial content.



Pears shared that they’ve paid close attention to many details of the initial roll out and subsequent DLC for Witcher 3. In its successes they will likely try to apply similar strategies to Cyberpunk with expanding the Cyberpunk universe. Quality of life updates will also play a role as it did with Witcher 3.
Some things that have already been announced for post release:
  • Adding Multiplayer mode
  • Free DLC
  • New single player content
In the mood for some more reading? Well they also have an interview with senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers. Some nice screenshots to be seen there as well.

I'm not a fan of the Witcher series, but I can appreciate what CD Projekt Red has accomplished. What the fans say about the series, and in particular the Witcher III leaves me hopeful that this will be a good game. It also looks to be far more interesting to me than the Witcher series does.
I really enjoyed Witcher 2 and 3, but CP2077 speaks waaaay more to my tastes. Also mighty interested to see where they have taken their engine with this new game.
