“The Witcher 3 Was A Great Warm Up For Cyberpunk 2077” Says CDPR


Cyberpunk 2077 is looming and CD Projekt Red regards The Witcher 3 to be a great practice run for what they have done for the upcoming ARPG.

It is safe to say that the gaming world as a whole is chomping at the bit with regards to Cyberpunk 2077 and its upcoming release date next month. This title is exciting, to say the least with its futuristic setting and high-end graphics, its easy to see why everyone is anticipating the release of Cyberpunk 2077.

The developer CD Projekt Red has such great titles under its belt as Saints Row and The Witcher series which have been great successes in their own rights.

The developers have recently tweeted that the massively popular Witcher 3 was “a great warm-up in terms of quest design.” This of course implies that Cyberpunk 2077 will be even greater and better in terms of development. This is saying a lot since The Witcher 3 is considered by many to be one of the best open-world RPGs ever made.

There have been a lot of reasons to think that Cyberpunk 2077 could be as great as the developers say. Such as the various gameplay videos that have been released and the many episodes of Night City Wire that have shown just how massive and in-depth the Cyberpunk 2077 world is. From the vehicles to the sheer size of the map, and it has Keanu Reeves in it, what more can we ask for?

There have even been rumours that DR.Disrespect will be in the game in some capacity, although it is unsure in what capacity at this stage.

It does seem that CD Projekt Red has worked really hard and are continuing to put in every effort to make this game one of the best.

One worrying fact that has recently come to light though is the fact that the Pre-order numbers for the game aren’t as impressive as they could be.

New data from M Science which is an analytics firm that specializes in generating real-time data has said:

“pre-sales appear 31% below where Red Dead Redemption 2 was on a comparable-days basis, 68 days prior to launch.”

This is quite a lofty comparison though as Red Dead Redemption 2 had one of the biggest releases in gaming history. Hopefully, these will pick up before launch though, and are not necessarily an indication of any kind.

The release date is just around the corner so we will not have long to wait to see if all the hype is true regarding this highly anticipated futuristic FPS.
