DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 is “what the game should be,” says CD Projekt Red

In a documentary, developers are thinking about what the game was at the time of its release and what has changed with the advent of Phantom Liberty.

The documentary released by ARD Media provided more information about the development of Cyberpunk 2077. For almost 70 minutes, CD Projekt Red reflects on the release of the game on PS4 and clarifies controversial moments.

Thanks to the appearance of Phantom Liberty, the action-role-playing game has gained a new life and has already become one of the 2023 rating games on Metacritic. But, despite such success and revival of the basic game with update 2.0, Is this expansion could cross out the consequences of a failure in 2020?

According to representatives of the studio, this DLC is all, "What should be the game". If Cyberpunk 2077 went on sale with "technical" the quality of the expansion, it would not have to be removed from the PS Store, it would not have to be returned to players or sharply criticize.

When you are too high, the fall is very painful. As for me, Phantom Liberty is the last word that we can say, and we can show in principle what we want to see it – what we really wanted the players to feel that we wanted to offer them what our game should be.

Pavel Sasco, director of the quests Cyberpunk 2077, says that the role -playing game was created in a hurry. In an interview, he mentioned that the development was conducted in "Very short time", And he said that people did not have "complex" Representations of production.

Apparently, the developers did not manage to polish "Game mechanics" and for a long time could not come to a single vision. According to representatives of the Polish studio, the concept of the game, which included the plot and principle of operation of the systems, was found late.

All our games are extremely complex, very large. They are very long when it comes to passing the entire campaign, the constellation of the missions. It seemed to me that the construction of the world is the most important thing. I focused on this and lost sight of how great and important technical perfection is".

Miles toast, a level designer from CD Projekt Red, said he almost left the company due to Cyberpunk 2077. With such a large -scale project and the need to constantly make improvements and changes, the developers had the feeling that they "Dumped through the ground".

And in conclusion, I would like to remind you that in the nearest Tuesday, September 26, the Phantom Liberty release will be released, the first and last expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, which will be available only for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
