The CD Project Red has confirmed the future science fiber RPG Cyberpunk 2077 may not arrive at Nintendo Switch.
On a broad-based meeting with Gamespot, the CD Project Red’s John Mègne said while a game like Witcher 3 “would be realistic on Switch” had not been considered by the team, it was unclear whether his upcoming RPG would also move on to Nintendo Switch.
Who would have thought Switch would reveal a game like The Witcher 3, so who knows?” Mama told.
“I think we’ll see if we’re willing to put it on the Switch if we can.”
Mamas also opened up his thoughts on microtransactions, and Cyberpunk 2077 could duplicate the generous DLC system in the studio for The Witcher 3.
“I think that after you release a game, it’s a bad idea to do microtransactions,” he said. “It appears, however, to be very powerful. It’s definitely a tough decision for the man who runs the company to determine whether or not they should.”
“But if everyone doesn’t like it, why do we do something like it and lose our consumers goodwill? The free DLC of Witcher 3 with huge pay updates had been a good template for us; it worked fine for The Witcher 3,” he went on to discuss other aspects of downloadable content.
“I don’t see why we wouldn’t attempt Cyberpunk 2077 to recreate the pattern. We don’t think about that yet, but it seems that’s the clever way to go.”
What fascinates us about the port is that it is very demanding for the Switch hardware in almost all levels: “The CPU and storage bandwidth requirements drive the existing consoles – so Saber Interactive can’t lower the frame rate from 60fps to 30fps, rather than like the Doom or Wolfenstein adjustments.”
