A leisurely-paced playthrough of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 sees CD Projekt Red QA lead clock in over 175 hours total play time.
Despite sinking a massive 175 hours into Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s QA lead has yet to experience everything it has to offer.
Taking to Twitter, Łukasz Babiel shared a screenshot from the highly-anticipated action-RPG showing a playthrough with a total playtime surpassing 175 hours.
In response to a question, the QA lead revealed they’d yet to complete everything Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer, hinting that CD Projekt Red is living up to its reputation for creating content-rich titles, as we saw with the studio’s previous effort, The Witcher 3.
It would be misguided to expect the average player to clock in a similarly lengthy playthrough. We have to appreciate this in the context of Babiel’s role as a QA tester, which requires meticulously scouring the game for potential bugs and issues.
When asked if 175 hours is roughly what completionists can expect to sink into the game, Babiel points to a leisurely-paced, stealth-oriented playthrough on the hardest difficulty exploring every feature in Cyberpunk 2077 as the most significant contributor to the sizable game time.
As with most open-world titles, each player’s appetite for exploration, taking on side quests, bagging achievements, and experiencing everything CD Projekt Red packs into Cyberpunk 2077 will dictate the length of a playthrough. In all likelihood, most players will hit the credits long before the 175-hour mark.
Though CD Projekt Red has delayed Cyberpunk 2077 three times now, news over the weekend struck an optimistic note, putting to bed rumbles of a delay into 2021.
Thanks to reports of retail PS4 copies finding their way into the wider world and even a short 20 minutes gameplay stream showing off the game in action, everything seems on track for CD Projekt Red to release Cyberpunk 2077 on Dec. 10 as intended.
