In the documentary, the developers think about what the game was like, when it was released, and what had changed, when the advent of Phantom Liberty.
A documentary by Ard Media gave more information about the development of Cyberpunk 2077. Over the course of nearly 70 minutes, CD Projekt RED reflects on the games release on PS4 and clears up some of the controversy.
Since the arrival of Phantom Liberty, the Action-RPG has found new life, and is already considered one of the fastest game of 2023 on Metacritic. Even if this expansion survived a catastrophic launch in 2020, the impact of the big move was immense.
According to developers, this video game is everything it’s like. If Cyberpunk 2077 had been released with the technical quality of the expansion, it wouldn’t have had to be removed from the PS Store, would not have had to refund the players money or be heavily criticised.
If you are too tall, falling is very painful. For me, Phantom Liberty is the only word that we could say. In principle, we can show that we want to achieve what we really wanted to be doing, what we wanted to offer them, what our game should be.
Pavel Sasko, director of Cyberpunk 2077, says that the role-playing game was created in a hurry. In an interview, he mentioned the progress on a very tight timeframe and said that people were unaware of the fullness of production.
While developers didn’t have time to polish the game mechanics, the occupants couldn’t reach a common vision for a long time. According to the representatives of the Polish city, the concept of the game, which included plot and systems as well as the ways it works, was discovered late.
All of our games are very complex and very large. They’re very long to get through, like an entire mission. It seemed to me that worldbuilding was the most important thing. I focused on it and was stunned to discover how important technical excellence is.
Miles Tost, a level designer at CD Projekt RED, said he nearly quit the company because of Cyberpunk 2077. In a large project and the need to keep in mind improvements and improvements had been decided by the developers, but eventually they fell through the ground.
For all, I want to give you a note on this coming Tuesday, September 26, the Phantom Liberty, the first and last expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. That expansion will only be available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox X/S.
