What is known

Project producer Richard Borzimovsky talked withGamesRadar journalist, talking about the size of the cyberpunk world. According to the developer, if you compare Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 in kilometers, the world of The Witcher will be larger, but Cyberpunk will win in quality.

“If you look at the clean area inkilometers, the Cyberpunk 2077 will be slightly smaller than The Witcher 3, but here it is about the density of the content. We took the world of The Witcher and squeezed it, removing the wild expanses, ”said Borzimovsky.

According to the developer, the Witcher was bigand small cities with plains and forests between them. In Cyberpunk 2077, the player will operate within Night City, so he had to reduce the open spaces to make the city vibrant and saturated. In addition, the world of Cyberpunk will be more vertical, and the character will be able to go into multi-level buildings, exploring them like dungeons.

“This is an integral part of the setting. In fact, the city is the main character, if you want to call it that, so it should be dense. This would not give us the effect we are achieving if the city were not believable [...], so we filled it with life, ”added Borzimovsky.
