Ever since developer CD Projekt Crimson first introduced Cyberpunk 2077 followers have been curious to know whether it is actually a standalone sequence or if it connects to the studio’s different fashionable franchise, The Witcher. On its face, the beliefs sounded far-fetched however there’s a scene in The Witcher three that gave credence to theories that Ciri would possibly seem in Cyberpunk 2077. Nevertheless, these theories will stay simply that, as sport director Adam Badowski says there are not any plans to “be a part of universes.”
Throughout an E3 2018 interview with Polygon, Badowski was requested whether or not or not gamers may anticipate to see Ciri pop up in Cyberpunk 2077, both as an Easter Egg or an NPC. However Badowski didn’t merely say, “no,” he reportedly put his head in his arms and stated that he hated that query.
“We aren’t Kingdom Hearts. We aren’t becoming a member of universes, and I do know that there are numerous followers on the staff and so they wish to have Ciri within the sport. However I’m completely in opposition to it, nonetheless.”
Provided that Ciri describes a spot eerily just like Cyberpunk 2077’s Night time Metropolis in The Witcher three, there have been certain to be questions concerning the two universes crossing over. It appeared like CD Projekt Crimson had put within the scene particularly to organize followers for its subsequent sport and perhaps to go away the door open for a Ciri cameo. Seems that isn’t the case.
Badowski even acknowledges that there are members of the Cyberpunk 2077 growth staff that wish to see Ciri seem within the sport, however he says that, “We aren’t Kingdom Hearts.” Clearly the person has sturdy emotions about having characters from one property seem in one other.
Whereas it’s attainable that Badowski is solely making an attempt to misdirect followers, he does sound fairly definitive. Perhaps a developer will be capable of sneak in a playful nod to The Witcher three character however something significant is unlikely to occur.
Nonetheless, the truth that followers had been capable of join the dots between Ciri’s description of a world with homes of glass and folks with metallic of their heads and Cyberpunk 2077 is fairly spectacular. Followers even went as far as to take Ciri’s dialogue and use it to relate the Cyberpunk 2077 reveal trailer, and it really works surprisingly effectively.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated to launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
