CD Projekt Red is Still "Looking For a Suitable Idea" for New Game Plus in Cyberpunk 2077
In a new interview, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red discusses adding a new game plus mode that fits the game.
In a new interview with Gamespot, Cyberpunk 2077‘s producer Richard Borzymowski discusses adding a new game plus mode that fits the game.
“What I can tell you is we are looking into a suitable idea for implementing New Game Plus,” says Borzymowski. “If and how has yet to be seen and talked about.”
“Let’s go with the two most basic approaches to New Game Plus, or whatever,” Borzymowski continues. “Complete example: either you finish the game and you’ve left the open world, or you can start a new game with the character you’ve previously developed. With the first approach, in our case, the benefit of replaying or playing more is that there are many, many, activities. I presume that most players will first finish the story rather than do everything there is because that’s pretty time-consuming. The other approach basically funnels you into one of the playstyles, right? So we’re looking for a way to ensure that you’re able to keep your progression, but are you still able to take a different path in order to see one of those parts that was hidden behind one of those actual choices. And we will probably get to something, but it’s too early to talk exactly how, because we want to make sure that it fits [Cyberpunk],” concludes Borzymowski. “Everything we want to do, we want to fit.”
CD Projekt Red’s desire to make everything fit and make sense for Cyberpunk also falls in line when it comes to potentially adding multiplayer. Based on other comments by CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077 gives players the freedom to make their character how they want it, establish relationships with others, and the story can branch out in multiple directions. Additionally, the developer has commented on how religion is represented in the game and how the game restricts players from killing story related NPCs and children.
