A CD Projekt RED developer said that
Cyberpunk 2077 will have a shorter campaign
because of The Witcher 3’s low completion rate.
Patrick K. Mills, senior level designer at CD Projekt
RED, shared the update during a post-episode AMA.
Mills described the reasoning behind
CD Projekt’s decision to go with a lighter
campaign this time around.
“looking at the metrics you see tremendous
numbers of people played through that game
really far but never made it to the end. We
want you to see the whole story”.
Out of all the gamers who bought
The Witcher 3 on Steam, only 27 percent have
managed to finish the main story.
The most obvious factor, of course,
is that most gamers are hobbyists and
The Witcher 3 is very, very long.
Mills assured fans that there’s
lots to do in Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on Nov. 12
for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox
Series X and Series S and Xbox One
