CD Projekt RED’s upcoming action-RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, will have a completely seamless open world, with no loading screens.
CD Projekt RED’s associate design director, Kyle Rowley, spoke to fans via discord (by way of Spieltimes). The question was, “Will there be loading screens from area to area?”. To which, Rowley replied, “No loading screens after the initial load into the game.”
This obviously means after the game has initially booted up. When in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, players will not be interrupted by loading screens between areas.
In CD Projekt RED’s other colossal action-RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the world had different HUBS, so it wasn’t a truly seamless open world.
It’s pretty impressive, given that the game’s setting is a huge futuristic city, with multiple buildings to go inside, and complete freedom to explore.
This year’s E3 featured an exciting trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, which sheds light on what you’ll be doing in the game.
The game doesn’t have a set release date at the moment, but will be out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
