As per the official information, Cyberpunk 2077 can also be played in GTA style, at least in theory. However, according to the developers of CD Projekt RED, players will quickly refrain from doing so given the many possibilities the title has to offer.
A few days ago, the developers at CD Projekt RED admitted that Cyberpunk 2077 will no longer be released in September as planned. Instead, the Polish studio needs a little more time for final polishing.
In a recent interview with PCGamesN, level designer Max Pears went into the playful implementation of Cyberpunk 2077 again. Since the latest work by The Witcher makers dispenses with a classic moral system, the question may have arisen as to whether it is possible to play Cyberpunk 2077 in the classic GTA manner.
According to Pears, this would be quite possible. In practice, however, the numerous possibilities that await in the game world of Cyberpunk 2077 should lead to the players quickly refraining from such an approach and not making decisions lightly. “If you want to go out on a rampage and have no remorse, then you have got the option, and that’s fine with us,” said Pears.
And further, Pears said the following: “However, once you start to play the missions and see the number of options you have. I think that will make players stop and think a little bit before doing something reckless. We’ve seen a lot of people default to that “GTA mode” and then after a little bit they realize how many things are different and adjust how they play.”
Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on November 19, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. As soon as the next-gen consoles are available, the game can also be played on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. An implementation for Google’s Stadia streaming service, which will follow at a later date, is also in the works.
