Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Be Like ‘Grand Theft Auto,’ Says CD Projekt RED
Cyberpunk 2077 is poised to deliver one of the most realistic gaming experiences players have ever seen when it inevitably launches. With hours and hours of content coming from main story quests, side missions, and just all around exploration, we’re sure Night City will have a bit of something for everyone.
That said, CD Projekt RED would like it to be known that while comparisons can be made between the forthcoming futuristic RPG and Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto franchise, players should not expect a similar experience. “Our game will provide a lot of side activities for you to engage in outside the main quest,” Lead Designer Miles Tost recently told GamingBolt. “Whether it’s side quests or encounters waiting for you on the streets of Night City, it will be crafted by us with a lot of love and care.”
The Cyberpunk 2077 developer seemingly knows that players will be looking for somewhat similar adventures in Night City that they would find in the likes of Los Santos, but that just won’t be the case. Well, not entirely. As Tost stated in the interview, CDPR doesn’t want to prevent players from having fun. “Whilst it’s very humbling to us to have our game be compared to GTA, with Cyberpunk 2077, we are striving for a different, story-driven experience,” he said. “That’s not to say we will stop players from goofing around.”
We imagine that the upcoming RPG is going to take a more serious approach to life in a vibrant city than one might expect in a GTA entry, but we do look forward to seeing exactly how we can goof around. Cyberpunk 2077 is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but no release date is known at this time.
