News | Cyberpunk 2077's Story takes place on a larger scale than The Witcher 3

According to Marcin Blacha, story director of CD Projekt Red, the story of Cyberpunk 2077 becomes much more comprehensive than with the developer's previous title.

The story takes place on a much larger scale and affects many more people in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. Blancha indicates this in an interview with the Polish website Inn: Poland. In The Witcher 3, the stories mainly take the form of personal dramas that only concern a number of NPCs. According to Blancha this is different in Cyberpunk 2077.

“From the maker’s perspective. Cyberpunk 2077 is a story about heroes in relation to the world, and the world itself is one of these heroes. If you ask me, the stories take place on a much larger scale instead of of small personal dramas as we know them from The Wticher, “says Blancha.

Blancha goes further by emphasizing that his favorite characters are often confused with himself. This gives him the opportunity to write emotional and deep dialogues for these NPCs. The man attaches great value to completely useless characters. “Without going into too much detail, I can reveal a list of my favorite characters. A prisoner who wants to make his dream come true during a day off, an AI who runs a complete Taxi company on his own and a smart girl who spends half of her time behind the counter of a private store and also works as a sister, “says the story director.

In addition, Blancha says that the script currently fills four books, but the man does not dare venture the exact number of words. He does indicate that not every sentence can be seen in the game. “In the end, we wrote two big volumes full of dialogue. In addition, two complete books were made full of commentary from us.

Last week it was announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will not be available at the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.

Cyberpunk 2077 appears April 16, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
