Development started off with a simple design. Exploration would take place in an isometric perspective. Players would travel between nodes on a world map, each one representing different story bits, with combat taking place in the form of Gwent battles.
America lies in pieces. Megacorporations dominate what remains, and gangs rule the streets. Welcome to Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt Red’s long-awaited follow-up to The Witcher 3 is another fanatically detailed game world that pushes the boundaries of player choice and emergent narrative.
But leave your expectations at the door – Cyberpunk 2077 is a radically different beast, as I quickly learned while watching an overwhelming 50-minute live demo.

Hey there PlayStation.Blog readers! My name is Michał “Luigi” Dobrowolski, and I’m a Senior Game Designer at CD Projekt Red. For more than a year now we’ve been working on our latest title, which I’m here to tell you more about here today.
Gwent started out as a mini-game in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. During your adventure, characters you met along the road would sometimes invite or challenge you to play a friendly game of cards. But what was meant to be a fun addition to the story-driven open-world RPG unexpectedly became the main objective for many players. Following the release of Wild Hunt, we received hundreds of messages from fans asking us to create a standalone, multiplayer version of Gwent so they could play with friends. Some even made their own physical cards and boards. Seeing how passionate people are about Gwent, we decided to answer the call.
Hi everybody! My name is Konrad Tomaszkiewicz and I’m a Game Director at CD Projekt Red, here to tell you more about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition, coming to PS4 on August 30.
The developers of the open-ended RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt describe their bold creation as a “morally indifferent” fantasy world, but it’s difficult to illustrate the true breadth of that claim. The world of The Witcher 3 is violent, desperate, dark, beautiful, and palpably old. It teems with quests and hidden dangers, alongside gritty heroes and the wrongdoers to match them. Playing Wild Hunt on PS4 for the first time, its world came to life in unexpected ways, but delivered a consistently rewarding introduction to a rich tale.
