CD Projekt RED is finding it really difficult to define what kind of a game Cyberpunk 2077. The CDPR developers are all confused with giving a proper defining answer. The game is actually a mix of different types of genres, mechanics, and systems that are not very easy to decipher. This makes it more difficult for the developers in CD Projekt.
Is the game a Witcher 3 level RPG game or an action-packed shooting game, or is it a huge open-world game like GTA? The developers are finding it very difficult to bring the game down to one particular genre. This is because the game has mixed elements of all the types, so bringing it down to one genre becomes difficult.
Developers from CD Projekt have trouble in defining the genre of Cyberpunk 2077.
In an interview with The Washington Post’s launcher, Jason Schreier said that he had heard there was some sort of tension or unclear idea about what Cyberpunk actually was. Is the game an RPG like Deus Ex or an enormous open-world game like GTA? It felt that the developers tried to bring many genres together into one single game. While trying to do all the things in one single game, they could not do proper justice in any of the genres.
The game was so new that the developers had to work on an entirely fresh system to make the game work properly. Cyberpunk 2077 is the first first-person shooting game that CPDR has made till now. CPDR has also put in a lot of vehicles in the game, which they have not done ever before. These new additions made the developers work a lot, from proper animation physics to mo-cap and good lighting. This also called for a lot of overtime duty for the developers.
CPDR had to put in a lot of extra work for this game because of all their new ventures into the game. It felt like they were working on a brand new studio because of the many new aspects of the game. The developers are confident with games like Witcher 3, but developing this game gave them a tough time.
Since the time Cyberpunk 2077 has released, the CPDR has been increasing its work to make the required fixes. They plan to release a patch 1.2 update to make the fixes. A patch for the next-gen consoles like Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will also come soon this year.
