Cyberpunk 2077 Devs Want to “Make You Cry”

by Liana Ruppert

With every glimpse we’ve had regarding CD Projekt RED’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 adventure comes a new wave of excitement about what’s next from the narrative geniuses. From in-depth gameplay looks, to a stunning character customization feature, Cyberpunk 2077 wants to make right by RPG fans – although apparently it really, really wants to make them cry too. 

Speaking with Game Reactor, Cyberpunk 2077 lead quest designer Pawel Sasko opened up about questing style that The Witcher fans will be intimately familiar with – remember Bloody Baron? Anyway, Sasko mentioned that if fans had a hard time stomaching that one that they should brace for impact because Cyberpunk 2077 is definitely to up the ante. 

“Oh I hope so,” he mentioned when asked about the emotional depth of the side stories. “Believe me guys, what we are doing here — we are going to make you cry, there’s no other way,” Sasko said. “Believe me, we’ll do everything to just grab the player and keep them glued to the screen.

“I think there’s gonna be joy, there’s gonna be tears, and there’s gonna be laughter, and yeah there’s gonna be anger. We are going to give you all that, because this is what we are doing. Like that’s one of my main goals — I wanna move the players, like they are going to feel it so hard, and we are coming for you.”

So in addition to your original Cyberpunk 2020 character sheets, remember to bring lots of tissues too – this ride is going to be a doozy. 

As for the game itself, Cyberpunk 2077 is making its grand debut on April 16 next year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
