The latest updates for "Cyberpunk 2077" reveal new details about its gameplay and the development on the current game consoles. Lead game designer Mike Tost told GamingBolt that the sci-fi open-world title will not expand its gameplay time.

Tost also said that video game fans can still play it on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. "Cyberpunk 2077" is CD Projekt RED's new title and made its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo event. The plot follows the cyborg mercenary, V, trying to survive the harsh and dangerous world of Night City by performing jobs from dangerous underground gangs to corrupt and shady corporate owners.

No expanding the gameplay

According to GamingBolt, Mike Tost stated that he and the developers of CD Projekt RED will not pad out "Cyberpunk 2077's" story for the sake of extended gameplay. They felt that it was "too early" for them discuss this since the game is still in development.

Even if they can pull it off, Tost felt that it must come in naturally and he believes that the main story and side-quests gameplay experience is enough to keep players engaged. Quest designer Patrick Mills stated in the previous issue of EDGE Magazine that the game's side-quests would feel like a completely different story as the players will know more about what is going on behind the scenes than the main story.

Mills added that player choices will have profound consequences that could affect the story. CD Projekt RED showcased a small sample of player choice in the Gamescom demo, and it will help players plan out certain situations.

Tost also commented on the rumors of the game being "downgraded" and comparing its drama narrative to "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." He stated that what they saw at Gamescom was a work in progress and a lot of things can change in the final product.

Cyberpunk 2077 on the current game consoles

According to Comic, Tost confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 can be played in the current game consoles as he explained that the PS4 and Xbox One's software still has a lot of power.

"Recently released titles have shown us that there’s still a lot of juice left in the current generation and I continue to be amazed by what’s being done," Tost said.

"Looking at the games released at the beginning of this generation and comparing them to some of the absolutely amazing looking recent titles, we can see quite an astonishing difference."

It was previously reported that Turkish publisher Bilkom placed "Cyberpunk 2077's" release date as 2019. However, co-developer Mike Pondsmith stated at E3 2018, that it will take several years to finish it despite its already impressive graphics, design, and gameplay.
