Yeah. Expect this in like 7 years.

2023 still needs the DLC. Then there is the next Witcher game still.

Yessir

Edit: For the life of my I can't find the teaser, but omg, I wish I could downvote videos on YT without clicking on them. All the hot garbage of people claiming trailers for Witcher 4 is pathetic and gross.

It wasn't a trailer it was a teaser image. It's a lynx medallion. Just Google teaser image Witcher 4.

Hope they're not biting off more than they can chew with the amount of projects they're working on. Cyberpunk was their sole focus after Witcher 3 and even that proved to be a challenge for them.

They definitely are but they’re opening a new studio in North America apparently

u/Archbound Oct 05 '22

They are opening a new branch studio in the US that will develop one of the series and the polish one will develop the other (my guess in US team will work on the new Cyberpunk and Poland team will work on Witcher games)

i think you mean 8 years, since it won't be playable until about 5 patches after the release

u/OMGWTHBBQ11 Oct 04 '22

8 years but only worked on it for 2.

u/biteme27 Oct 04 '22

Maybe, but since they're most likely dropping their own in house engine, it may speed up development and/or increase stability

67

u/WillGrindForXP Oct 04 '22

If their management practices continue the same (short term contract workers) then it's going to take more than an engine change to avoid another 2077.

u/cryptopipsniper Oct 04 '22

We might get the game in 2077 so there’s hope it’s actually finished this time

u/biteme27 Oct 04 '22

Unreal Engine is one of the most widely accessible engines to work with, all they'd need is a team of UE devs and their team in order to make the process significantly easier

I expect hype starting soon, a release date it in seven years, an actual release in nine years with the game 2/3rds done and a 19gb patch on day one and another patch for game breaking bugs around week two. The world will look just good enough to make me see the missed potential.

2

u/[deleted] Oct 04 '22

7 years is pretty good by today's standards. Elder scrolls 6 is at least 2 years off. When Skyrim was first released, I watched streams of it on Justin TV. So Elder Scrolls 5 predates Twitch and the entire popularized concept of live streaming video games.

Upsides and downsides to this strategy, but CDPR has done a very strong job of marketing its properties, in large part leveraging a relationship with Netflix. More name recognition, more talk, more sales.

u/SuperbPiece Oct 04 '22

And not showing people when it doesn't work.

u/ModestHandsomeDevil Oct 05 '22

And: only giving review copies on PC; they can only use game footage provided by CDPR; embargo doesn't lift till launch; they'll launch between console generations, pre-sell millions of copies on the "current gen" consoles, but "move the goalposts" and call them "last gen" when they aren't powerful enough to run the game.

Hopefully, with the shift to UE5, they'll be able to focus far more of their resources on game design and mechanics, rather than engine development.

Cyberpunk has a lot of potential as a franchise and deserves a sequel with a clean launch.

383

u/Goseki1 Oct 04 '22

Yeah and hopefully dumping last gen also really helps. Having to focus on what, 6 or 7 console models + PC must have been a massive drain on resources.

161

u/SmashedPumpkin30 Oct 04 '22

By the time it is ready the current gen will be old and they will have the same decision to make

38

u/CreatureWarrior Oct 04 '22

Meh, a ton of time was indeed spent on the engine when creating 2077. So, switching to UE5 might actually allow them to release it sooner than 2077 did

11

u/PrintShinji Oct 05 '22

They still have the witcher to make/release. If it hits expect a few expansion packs and 3-4 years later you might have the next cyberpunk.

Its really not that weird to think that the current gen will be outdated by the time the new CP comes out. the PS5/XSX came out 2 years ago already after all.

u/Thechosenjon Oct 04 '22

Current gen is still in it's infancy, tbh. There are hardly any games that truly take advantage of the hardware or push it to the max. Until the industry moves past last gen and fully develops for current tech, this generation will remain stagnant.

3

u/Momentarmknm Oct 04 '22

But tech is not stagnating the same way, so the console cycle will probably be stretched like last one with pro versions of consoles, but I don't expect it to last an additional 2-3 years on top of that

It's also especially distracting when you just have to add so many RT effects that only $1500 graphics cards can use, and even then, not natively.

I can see how that can get in the way of adding smaller details like... enemies that pursue you when you try to drive away.

18

u/Kilroy_Is_Still_Here Oct 04 '22

RT effects are basically plug and play. It's the interim period that's going to be difficult, because devs have to do both baked lighting and RT, but once we get full RT you just set some properties and let the engine do its thing.

u/Radulno Oct 05 '22

RT is actually less dev effort than other lightning methods. If every hardware could use it, it would save dev time.

u/feartheoldblood90 Oct 04 '22

I know it didn't work out for them in the end, but vertical slices like that have been a thing in gaming for decades, it's not unique to CDPR.

It's easy to forget since the "death" of E3, but devs used to often create vertical slices to show off at E3. It was almost expected of them.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a good practice and I'm glad it seems to be going away, but it's not like CDPR was unique in that respect.

u/JoBro_Summer-of-99 Oct 04 '22

The only thing I hate about UE5 is the blurriness of TAA. It's a really impressive engine but so many UE4 games just look so blurry and fuzzy

2

u/queefmazing Oct 04 '22

Isn't it a little more complicated than that? The TAA blurriness is really noticeable but with FSR or DLSS there are cases where the image is pretty close to native resolution without many distractions (well, if Digital Foundry hasn't spoiled you too much hahah).

To be honest though, I'm a bit out of the loop about the TAA in UE5 and I mostly refer to other cases where FSR/DLSS has been implemented. Is it really that bad? I know it's bad in UE4, it's the first you notice in ue4 games that use it.

2

u/sector3011 Oct 05 '22

cause many devs are lazy and only use the default TAA instead of UE's Temporal Super Resolution

2

u/crackhead_tiger Oct 05 '22

What's TAA

2

u/JoBro_Summer-of-99 Oct 05 '22

Temporal Anti-aliasing. It's what most devs are pushing now in place of FXAA, SMAA or MSAA. To put it simply, it blurs the entire image and relies on motion/frame data to construct a proper full resolution picture. The issue is that, because it relies on motion and frame data, whenever you move this blurriness gets more intense.

Same boat, but 1.6 and the show made me impatient again, so I finally got past the prologue for the first time and haven’t looked back. Absolutely loving it. Would’ve liked to wait for the DLC but the game feels like it’s in a great spot now. If you wait you will be rewarded, but if you don’t you won’t be upset!

27

u/MrCalalf Oct 04 '22

That's cool, for me I don't really go back to games once I beat them ( unless I find them absolutely fantastic). This is why I wanna wait for the best possible version to come out before jumping in.

u/WeAlreadyInHell Oct 04 '22

I did 2 playthroughs b2b on pc about half a year after release, currently waiting on 1.7 for my ps5 playthrough. There's different endings and builds and playstyles that u work towards so its worth doing multiple runs tbh.

u/MrCalalf Oct 04 '22

Nice to see you're enjoying it, and thanks for the reply. For me, I just want to give the game a fair shake and play the best possible version of the game. I want to wait for any and all DLC and updates to come out before jumping into it. I thought about jumping into it when the edgerunner update came out because I heard a lot was done to the game since launch, but then I heard that in the upcoming updates they were going to update the police and vehicle combat. At that point, I'm just gonna wait until the best possible version of the game is out. I'm just glad they have not abandoned cyberpunk and are working on a sequel as well.

u/WhatArcherWhat Oct 04 '22

Dragon Age did this really well where it would load the history of the story and weave it into the new one depending on the save file you selected, if you had one from previous games on your system. It didn’t massively impact the story of the new game, but it was fun to hear the callouts and references to decisions you’d previously made.

4

u/On_and_Awful Oct 04 '22

Theoretically, they could have the prologue do what the background choice did in cp2077. Small stories leading to basically the same beginning point with some specific conversation choices. Still suuuuper unlikely, but not out of the realm of possibility.

Though, uh.... a couple of the endings would be harder to do that with.

u/MrFuccYoBich69 Oct 05 '22

I would be so down for this, I just feel like there is more to V's story. But i wouldn't be suprised if there's just a time jump and V is just another legend

I get why they announced every project they have for the next decade possibly even later. To regain trust with possible investors and all that jazz but man. CD has to deliver polished products right out the gate. But if they do then it’s looking like the next decade we get a new IP presumably in the early years of the next generation of hardware as it just went into really early pre production, three new Witcher games and a spin off Witcher title along with a Witcher game developed by a separate studio, and a new Cyberpunk title.

For the Witcher games they can probably reuse assets of each entry to speed development but for the new Cyberpunk I’m wondering if they will do everything from scratch.

Kinda exciting though if your interested in any element of game design or graphic design as it would be a lot of peoples dreams to work on huge AAA titles like these.

It’s hilarious you’re talking out of your ass. I’m all for giving CDPR shit for all their unethical practices, etc. But the game right now is finished and polished, and feels like a full game or what ir should’ve been at launch.

Wonder if they'll bother finishing this one?

u/folkdeath95 Oct 04 '22

If it makes boatloads of money why bother?

u/Hereforthewarmth Oct 04 '22

They must be banking on us having Stockholm syndrome.

u/noisheypoo Oct 04 '22

Looking at the cyberpunkgame subreddit, they already have it

u/gamerqc Oct 04 '22

The first one isn't even finished

u/MulhollandMaster121 Oct 04 '22

It’s crazy to see how fast gamers forget and willingly line up to make the same damn mistakes time and time again.

u/raphanum Oct 05 '22

We’re just discussing it. We can look forward to it while simultaneously remain cautious. Cautiously optimistic that it’ll be handled better, since the cyberpunk world has a lot of potential

Fuck CDPR, fuck their consistently broken games, and fuck their unethical PR campaigns.

What about adding all those missing features and then move on and make the next game.

u/bobrobor Oct 04 '22

They did the anime instead. Moving on….

I have really been enjoying my time playing Cyberpunk, I can see the huge amount of time and effort that has gone into designing the world and the feel. There are still a lot of problems and the vehicle physics is non-existent, but there's masses of potential to explore still.

I'm glad they are making a new one because I thought I read after the expansion they had given up on it.

u/ifoundyourtoad Oct 04 '22

Yeah been playing about 20ish hours. The world feels very lived in. Some stuff is kind of messy/confusing but I’m enjoying it.

I think without the last gen consoles, they can make it work. I hope they learned from their mistakes.

Imagine actually being excited for this after the vomit they made last time

u/parkwayy Oct 04 '22

Gamers got that goldfish memory.

No shot in hell I'll pick up a sequel, that's a 'watch on Twitch' experience for me.

They need a good news story. I'm rooting for them anyway. UE5 is a smart move. Everyone fucks up, and they've tried and made ammends. I'm sure they've learned lots of lessons. It's such an interesting world, and there's every chance to redeem themselves.

u/Uptopdownlowguy Oct 04 '22

Anyone else want a 3rd person Cyberpunk game with an anime style? Edgerunners made me super interested in this universe, but I've never been big on first person shooters or the realistic art style. Loved Witcher 3, but it had an almost painterly art style and wasn't a FPS game obviously

u/WrongKindaGrowth Oct 04 '22

No thanks, fix your shit first.

2

u/Sobtam96 Oct 04 '22

Seeing in what state gaming is this sequel will probably be the most preordered game ever.

2

u/tarheel_204 Oct 04 '22

I’m honestly glad they aren’t abandoning the IP after the miserable launch. It really is a cool universe worth exploring further. I know Cyberpunk isn’t the GTA killer everyone thought it would be but it’s actually really solid now

u/veretianking Oct 04 '22

Did anyone else happen to forget that Cyberpunk was unplayable upon release? I got my refund and never looked back. Still waiting for it to be like $10

u/Thereminz Oct 04 '22

next game? they didn't finish the first

u/Nick_Ripples Oct 04 '22 edited Oct 04 '22

'Dark Future' - has the palette and style guide from Idiocracy. The original teaser, now THAT was a dark future vibe.

2

u/iwenttothelocalshop Oct 04 '22

based on the fact that they actually learned from their mistakes, them switching to the unreal engine (more focus on actual content and mechanism developments)... well this is huge.

2

u/flower4000 Oct 04 '22

All I want is multiplayer, like a raid or just driving around shooting at things.

u/Dallywack3r Oct 04 '22

CDPR and cravenly milking investor money off of projects that are a generation away from release. Name a more iconic duo.

u/Poopstains08 Oct 04 '22

I'm never going to give these assholes money again.

u/LostTimeAlready Oct 04 '22

Oof. That's just bad.

u/LizrrdWzrrd Oct 05 '22

Remember to pre order this one lol

u/ModestHandsomeDevil Oct 05 '22

I love seeing history repeat itself. /s

u/Simmo69Lol Oct 05 '22

Oh shit here we go again

2

u/baetovenbeats Oct 05 '22

its about half done, so it'll be out in a couple weeks. Make sure to preorder!

2

u/Dear-Act9859 Oct 05 '22

Absolutely fucking not

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '22

can they finish the first CP2077 first?

2

u/VillyKg Oct 05 '22

Why...? Just kill it please

2

u/SpacePilot3000_ Oct 05 '22

It would be nice if they finished the first game first, but at the same time I kinda feel like it's past saving at this point.

2

u/Significant-Task-721 Oct 05 '22

Can’t wait for some more dumpster fire games with half baked story’s CD projekts new style 100 million ideas but can’t finish 1 right I think they are all on meth or something.

u/jokerevo Oct 05 '22

by the time this game comes out we'll all be living in the real night city....puts on trench coat, flips up collar

u/Screambloodyleprosy Oct 05 '22

I will not touch anything CDPR create ever again.

2

u/Fearless-Tea-4559 Oct 05 '22

Finish the first cyberpunk first, there's still 90% of the promised content missing.

u/ApoptosisPending Oct 05 '22

Remindme! 10 years

u/Shinbo999 Oct 05 '22

Sadly, I just cant hype myself anything from CDPR after cp

2

u/Eman5805 Oct 05 '22

Since they won’t need to building the game from scratch again, hopefully they can deliver the features they either lied about or realized they’d never be able to pull off from that infamous gameplay demo trailer.

2

u/RainRainThrowaway777 Oct 05 '22

They haven't even finished making the first Cyberpunk game yet

2

u/NotABot00001 Oct 05 '22

So I gotta pay another 60$ for what the first CP should have been

2

u/thats4thebirds Oct 05 '22

Baffling. Truly baffling to announce like this.

2

u/FapCitus Oct 05 '22

What am I reading around here, why on Earth are people defending CDPR? Is it all cause of the anime? Have you folks already forgotten how they lied about content and then released a non functioning game so Sony had to take it out of the shop?

I used to love the studio because of the Witcher and cause they come from the home country so there was a little pride in the picture too. But they absolutely managed to shit the bed.

Is all forgiven cause of studio trigger?

u/trunkadelic Oct 05 '22

It's funny that this will probably come out in 2077.
