In a recent interview, CD Projekt RED’s Senior Level Designer Miles Tost talked about the RPG elements in Cyberpunk 2077.
He said the following :
” I don’t know, there’s a lot, there’s a ton of weapons. How I would summarize this is… I think people tend to forget that Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG first and foremost. Right? So customization and equipment choices, making choices in the skills you have, the talents, how your character looks, how you choose dialogue, it’s the center stage of this experience.”
He Continued :
” I think some people look at this game and think “Oh man, it’s first-person and has guns! It’s a shooter!” and that’s a very surface-level assessment, I think in many ways, it’s a much, much deeper roleplaying experience than The Witcher 3. “
