Cyberpunk 2077 "will make you cry," according to CD Projekt RED

CD Projekt RED is no stranger to weaving the perfect tale, but it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is aiming for real-time tears.

Cyberpunk 2077 keeps getting better and better with every look CD Projekt RED has shared with us thus far. Now that the Keanu Reeves hype has finally died down a bit and we can breathe like normal human beings again, the studio is here to remind fans why they're so good at what they do. Not only do they want to tell a good story, thanks to the team that gave us The Witcher, but they want to make you cry while enjoying it. 

In a recent interview with Game Reactor, Cyberpunk 2077 lead quest designer Pawel Sasko talked a little bit about their quest-line philsophy and how they're pulling for that emotional yank much like they did with their The Witcher trilogy. Oh, and remember Bloody Baron? Yeah, that came up.

"Oh I hope so," opened up Pawel when talking about what kind of response players will have to the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 adventure. "Believe me guys, what we are doing here -- we are going to make you cry, there's no other way," Sasko said. "Believe me, we'll do everything to just grab the player and keep them glued to the screen.

"I think there's gonna be joy, there's gonna be tears, and there's gonna be laughter, and yeah there's gonna be anger. We are going to give you all that, because this is what we are doing. Like that's one of my main goals -- I wanna move the players, like they are going to feel it so hard, and we are coming for you."

This isn't the first time that the studio has mentioned an emotional story. With the level of character customization, all of the different routes players can choose, and even the addition of romance options - this is a videogame that is very much tailored to feel like real life and let's face it: real life can get messy sometimes. 

So ... we'll all cry together? Sound like a good plan? Awesome, see you on April 16, 2020 when Cyberpunk 2077 makes its grand debut on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. 

With an arguably unhealthy obsession with Dragon Age and Mass Effect, Liana is wildly passionate about all things in the gaming community. From shooters, to RPGs, if it's out - she's playing it.
