In a reasonably emotional statement, the quest director for Cyberpunk 2077 recently expressed their feelings regarding the game’s recent resurgence. People are playing CD Project Red’s dystopian RPG again due to the recent release of the Cyberpunk 2077 Edge runners DLC and related anime. After the contentious debut in 2020, which led many to believe that the initial release was too flawed, the player count has increased, indicating that players are prepared to give the game a try, possibly even a replay.
For the game and its creator, things have been getting better. Currently ranking third among single-player games on Steam, Cyberpunk 2077 recently overtook The Witcher 3 in terms of concurrent players, trailing only Grand Theft Auto 5 and Lost Ark. The studio has been working diligently to fix some of the most game-breaking bugs. The most recent updates have undoubtedly proven popular, helping to repair the game’s reputation even though some players may still be on the fence following the backlash from the game’s launch almost two years ago.
Recently, Quest Director Pawe Sasko of CDPR used Twitch to express their feelings over Cyberpunk 2077‘s revival. Sasko talks about the “heart and soul” that went into the game’s development in uploaded footage to Reddit, holding back tears as he says that some team members had been working on it for almost eight years. They continue, stating that it’s “wonderful to be back” and that it feels “unreal” that people are now beginning to appreciate and love the game. Sasko comments on the song playing in the background as the clip come to a close, adding to the speech’s emotional impact.
Nearly a year after Cyberpunk 2077‘s release, Pawe Sasko took on the role of quest director. They were recognised as an industry expert because of their prior work as the primary quest designer for The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.
Despite having one of the worst video game releases in recent memory, CDPR salvaged the situation and made Cyberpunk 2077 significantly better than it was in December 2020. This Sasko video demonstrates how the game’s creators have been affected, probably more so than the fan base overall. It also illustrates how the story can alter with a lot of work, and it’s encouraging to see that the game’s creators are now receiving praise.
For PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S users, Cyberpunk 2077 is now available.
