CD Projekt Red has revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a "slightly shorter" main story than The Witcher 3, as the team received "a lot of complaints" about that game's 50+ hour campaign being too long.
This was highlighted by senior quest designer Patrick K. Mills on the recent Night City Wire stream (thanks ResetEra), in which he explained that the team wanted players to see the whole story this time around:
"We got a lot of complaints about The Witcher 3's main story just being too long. And looking at the metrics, you see tremendous amounts of people played through that game really far, but never made it to the end."
In regards to how long the game will take for completionists, Mills admitted he can't put a number on it right now, but enthused that although the main story is shorter, there's still "lots to do."
You can check out the latest episode of Cyberpunk 2077's Night City Wire on YouTube, and the game is available to pre-order now on the Microsoft Store ahead of its release for Xbox One on November 19th.
