We know the upcoming open-world CD Projekt Red game, Cyberpunk 2077, will be big. But how big exactly, has not been disclosed by Polish developers.
We know from the previous statement that games will be much bigger than previous projects in the studio, but the question is how big, and how is the scale measured?
Red Dead Redemption 2 's the map has almost the same size GTA V, but it is much denser and full of dynamic content and systems. Furthermore, you cross it through horses compared to vehicles. Likewise, at Cyberpunk 2077, the player's main transportation is the car, while at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt horseback riding. So for a moment Cyberpunk 2077 greater than The Witcher 3, the fact that you can traverse the world faster may only negate some size differences, if not all.
That said, CD Projekt Red is still reluctant about the size of the game, but it has recently provided more insight into the topic.
Earlier this week, a Reddit user shared their conversation with an official representative through the game's official Facebook page, which confirmed that there would be six different districts. However, the total size of "Night City" games has not been calculated by the team. Furthermore, the rep noted that it was difficult to compare the size of the game The Witcher 3.
"Kota Malam has six districts, but I cannot give you exact numbers in square meters because there is no one [has] count this yet, "wrote the representative." Also, this is complicated for an urban environment – Kota Malam has many buildings and these buildings have floors. You can have 120 square meters of space technically up to 60m2 of space. In a tall building, and we will find many of them, each floor can be a place of activity. Stack of the floor. The is Witcher 3 is, by the way, a lot flat – the activities are scattered. Here, the world can be very large, but it can be very large, or down. "
From that sound, total square miles will not represent Cyberpunk 2077 size because it scales the game vertically and adds space above and below the road surface. So the map can be smaller than other games, but when you count the space up and down, it will be much bigger.
