A Cyberpunk 2077 dev takes to social media to show just how deep the game can be, showing off a 175 hour playtime that hasn’t finished the game.
A Cyberpunk 2077 developer took to social media earlier to reveal how their latest playthrough of the upcoming open-world RPG is going, and they’ve sunk 175 hours into Night City without completing the game. Cyberpunk 2077 releases on December 10, 2020 after a series of delays saw it miss its April target by quite some margin, but anticipation for the game hasn’t suffered and it remains the biggest release of the holiday season.
The build-up to Cyberpunk 2077 launch has stopped and started a little whenever its release date was delayed, but pushing it back has also given consumers more opportunities to analyze the information they’ve been given – not to mention the many showcases CD Projekt Red has provided to demonstrate what Cyberpunk will look like. Throughout interviews with devs who’ve worked on Cyberpunk 2077, it’s become clear that the game isn’t just rehashing what made the studio’s previous RPG effort, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, special. Instead, the company has indicated it has learned from the way fans responded to various elements of The Witcher 3, which has resulted in a shorter Cyberpunk 2077 campaign and a tighter, more jam-packed map with verticality that expands its possibilities.

CD Projekt Red QA Lead Łukasz Babiel took to Twitter recently to demonstrate the depth of Cyberpunk 2077 for players willing to explore it, revealing that he’d put in 175 hours into a playthrough without beating the game yet. Obviously, those kind of numbers can vary dramatically based on playstyle, difficulty level, and more, so fans immediately began asking questions, and Babiel graciously answered. According to him, his run is not completionist, but rather a Cyberpunk 2077 playthrough where he is playing stealthy, using “every feature the game has to offer” and doing it on the hardest difficulty setting. That’s a promising combination for the type of player that wants a game to last hundreds of hours, and it’s got fans excited.
Not really, that’s just one of my ongoing slow paced playtroughs on the hardest difficulty where I play more stealthy than usual, loot everything, use every feature the game has to offer, I take my time ;).

Babiel’s playthrough time clearly comes with some caveats since he’s taking a slower approach to it, but even with players rushing through or playing on a lower difficulty, it seems like Cyberpunk 2077 length shouldn’t be a concern for those who want to sink a significant amount of time into it. It’s not a surprise that a CD Projekt Red game is deep and has a lot of options for play, too, but it’s confirmation that this remains the case with Cyberpunk 2077 as it has in the studio’s previous efforts.
With a release date only weeks away, it seems like the Cyberpunk 2077 hype train has fully left the station. With Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay leaks revealing even more tantalizing gameplay and a recent launch trailer that showed off the gripping aesthetic of the title, there’s little doubt the game will sell exceptionally well. What’s more interesting will be just how well it’s received, and whether or not Cyberpunk 2077 is the game everyone is hoping it will be.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on December 10, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. A PS5 and XSX current-gen update is coming in 2021.
