‘We’re running at a f**king wall, and we’re gonna crash’—CD Projekt’s lead quest designer on big budget RPGs

Recent PC Gamer editorial “The cinematic BioWare-style RPG is dead, it just doesn’t know it yet” caused quite “a commotion” between the lead designers at developer CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077 quest director Paweł Sasko said in a recent PC Gamer roundtable interview (opens in new tab). “Everyone actually, after reading this article, said: we mostly agree, actually, with the thesis. At least when it comes to triple-A, we are just running at a fucking wall, I think, and we’re gonna crash on that wall really soon.”

Sasko’s comments above kicked off a discussion on the technology behind today’s big-budget games and the expectations players have for them. The “wall” Sasko referred to is the ballooning complexity and expense of making games like Cyberpunk 2077. Before it released, I think it’s safe to say many RPG players assumed that if CD Projekt had done such a fantastic job with The Witcher 3, it should be able to do the same with Cyberpunk.
