Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt RED Overhauls Development Tools
During interview with iDigitalTimes at PAX East event which was held last weekend, Jose Teixeira, visual effects artist at CD Projekt RED announced that the development tools at the studio are being overhauled for the development of their upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
“There is a difference between how games like this reach a general audience. With The Witcher it was a snowball effect and there was this core of hardcore gamers that knew about The Witcher and they passed the word along. It was a very slow process. With Cyberpunk 2077 all they did was this little mood trailer and it just went insane. It was like an avalanche of interest immediately. It clicks with people instantly and it does the exact same thing with me.”
According to him, the studio is also taking fans’ feedback from previous game, The Witcher 3. He termed it as a big learning for the programmers. He further said,
“The most important thing that’s happening at the moment is that the programmers are taking the feedback we gave them from working on The Witcher . As cliche as it sounds it was a big learning experience. The programmers are updating our software quite drastically.”
“I immensely appreciate medieval fantasy games,” he said. “ But I don’t know what it is about Cyberpunk 2077 but it just clicks. There’s something about this game that just clicks with me and I’m really happy to be working on it.”
CD Projekt RED is expected to reveal more information regarding the game during E3 event this year. Stay tuned for more!
