In its day, the release of Cyberpunk 2077 was highly criticized due to the numerous bugs and the lack of product quality on different platforms (especially on the previous generation of consoles). Time has passed and, after many months of work, CD Projekt Red now offers a title that is much closer to the level of quality that they promised before its release, although those responsible for the game have spoken of its negative points.
Pawel Sasko, mission designer in the open world RPG from the Polish company, already pointed out that the linearity of the missions could have been improved at the time, and now he has reflected in a live broadcast on Twitch about the content and features that are they removed from Cyberpunk 2077. It was planned that there would be things like a subway system, more complex police action and even the possibility of scrolling through walls, but it seems that the development of all this did not reach the quality that they were looking for.
We leave you below Sasko’s explanations (collected by MP1st ), which points to a lack of sufficient quality in these discarded systems and to having left out of the final product many more things than we thought:
“Content that has been dropped is not used for a reason. I always try to explain to players, and also to the press, that when you make a game you have a responsibility as a designer to make decisions about what will be in the game. title. And, when the content is weak or lacks quality, you analyze it and see that the potential is not there. You realize that you cannot include nine out of ten missions, locations or game features.”
Phantom Liberty is coming this year
It is worth remembering that CD Projekt Red has not yet said its last word with Cyberpunk 2077, since Phantom Liberty, an expansion for the game that will not reach the previous generation of consoles, is scheduled to launch sometime in 2023. Along with that, it has been confirmed that the Polish company will carry out a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, although its development has not yet started and we will have to wait a long time to find out more about the project.
