Cyberpunk 2077 to be "even better, even bigger, even more revolutionary" than originally planned

Cyberpunk 2077

You've probably seen this written in some form in the press lately: The Witcher 3 raised the bar for videogames. I think it's accurate. While I enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition at the time, I couldn't go back to it in a post The Witcher 3 world. It seems CD Projekt Red acknowledge this fact, too, as their aspirations for sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 have increased since the studio's last game altered the gaming landscape.

You know The Witcher 3 is good because it ended up in our selection of PC's best RPGs.

During CD Projekt Red's latest earnings briefing, where the Polish developer also revealed plans to release another triple-A RPG before 2021, management also discussed Cyberpunk 2077, speaking entusiastically about their goals for the RPG.

According to DualShockers, studio head Adam Badowski said The Witcher 3 raised the bar, meaning Cyberpunk 2077 needs to be "even better, even bigger, even more revolutionary" than originally planned. He went on to say the game is still "a long ways away" from launch, and explained the developer still has "a lot of work to do" to make it a "truly outstanding game."

He also said Cyberpunk 2077 is a “huge game,” with a magnitude “much greater” than The Witcher 3, and the studio has “amazingly large ambitions” for it. CD Projekt Red are doubling their workforce to make sure it matches these ambitions.

CD Projekt Red have said similar things about Cyberpunk 2077 before, with visual effects artist Jose Teixeira saying: "“Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before. Far, far bigger.” He also went on to say Cyberpunk 2077 would "benefit greatly" from the learning experience that was developing The Witcher 3. 

Let's hope they're not setting expectations too high. Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to release sometime before 2077, between 2017-2021.

I look at that picture and "revolutionary" isn't the first thing to come to mind. Which is a shame, because that's fairly neat hardware there, but I can't enjoy it because there's objectification of the person going on. Even if the person in this case is fictional, it's still an ongoing blow to the self-esteem and confidence of women gamers who put up with this nonsense.

Plus, still not quite as sexy as Adam Jensen's hardware. That man had it going on, as is the vernacular, I believe.

Sorry. It's just a pity.

I think the 'objectification' of her in the game universe is the point. the trailer is trying to make.

Try not defining yourself by what other people think. I mean in what way does that picture hurt you or anyone else? You don't like like her? I'm not buff like those cops. I'm not whining about how they drew them, I'm reminding myself that's why I'm watching what I eat and that I'm down to 258lbs (6'4" FTR) and actually seeing some definition in my arms again (pushing 50 so been a while).

See what I did there? I accepted basic reality (my genetics, looks etc) and that I am responsible for the things that Ive done to myself. A is A and blaming computer programmers won't change that.
