If you’re anything like us, and you just want to know everything you can about the hit title, we have the articles for you!

After The Witcher 3 and it’s couple hundred hours of content, people have come to expect CD Projekt Red games to take a long time to beat.

It looks as if Cyberpunk 2077 is no different, and is filled to the brim with content for fans!

Here’s how many hours the game will take to beat.

How Long is the Cyberpunk 2077 Story?

Senior quest designer Patrick Mills described the story length as being “Slightly shorter than The Witcher 3.”

According to estimates on HowLongToBeat.com, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes 50 hours to complete at a leisurely pace.

If you absolutely want to speed through, then you’re looking at nearer 30.

So we’re likely looking at about 40-45 hours for Cyberpunk 2077 if you want to take your time.

The reason for this was apparently people found the story a bit too long and never finished it!

Though this could be the nearly 100 hours of content the rest of the game had to offer.

How Long are the Cyberpunk 2077 Side Quests?

We don’t know how long the game will take to beat right now, but we can take a few guesses.

This tweet from Łukasz Babiel, QA Lead at CD Projekt Red clocks in at around 175 hours.

The “How it’s going” caption suggests they may still not yet be finished with everything in the game but we’ll take 175 with a pinch of salt.

As a QA Lead, Babiel may be having to really take time exploring Cyberpunk, searching for any bugs and issues.

This would put it more in the slow speed end of things, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a nice benchmark. 

HowLongToBeat.com clocked 100%ing Witcher 3 at around 170 hours too, so the time is on par for CD Projekt Red Games!
