Cyberpunk 2077 VR: Will Virtual Reality Be Used In Night City? Post-Launch Content, Side Missions & More

The release of Cyberpunk 2077 has been highly anticipated since 2012, and it appears we now have an actual release date for Holiday 2020.

Many people believe this has the potential to be Game of The Year for 2020!

Cyberpunk's release date being pushed back a few months has definitely let down the community, but they have done a good job at keeping everyone informed.

The game's developers have been experimenting with VR and are considering implementing it.

Continue reading for all the details on CD Projekt Red's futuristic vision for Cyberpunk 2077.

VR In Cyberpunk 2077

It turns out that CD Projekt Red has been experimenting with the idea of implementing VR into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 for a little while now.

In a recent interview with onMSFT, the producer John Mamais from CDPR told the outlet that as much as they would like to do something with VR, "it's not viable yet."

Allegedly the platform is very "experimental and niche", meaning that it isn't a great fit for the hotly-anticipated RPG.

Mamais continued:

“We tried. We were thinking about VR but, yeah, we’re not doing anything with VR”.

However, that doesn't mean that the studio has nothing in store for us post-launch, as the very same interview offered some hints about what we can expect to see.

 

Side Missions, Street Stories & Post-launch Content

When asked if Cyberpunk will see the same level of expansion as The Witcher has, Mamais said:

"I wish I could talk about it more because, for us, it’s very interesting. But we can’t."

Clearly his hands are tied by the PR department at CD Projekt Red HQ.

However, Mamais hinted that "it'll probably be something like The Witcher", which has recently seen a version for Nintendo Switch.

Though a Switch version of Cyberpunk would be incredible, it is hard to tell if the game would actually transfer well to the handheld Nintendo device.

Then again, the developer said the same thing about the Witcher 3, and they ended up releasing it to the Switch.

 

Finally, the interview also revealed that the game will have a "couple of layers" as well as additional "minor activities."

The side-content will give players more to do when they don't feel like following the main storyline.

The side content in Witcher 3 was regarded as some of the best content the game had to offer. Let's hope Cyberpunk can live up to its predecessor's side missions.

It's safe to say this Cyberpunk will have a lengthy, yet unique storyline.

That’s all we have on Cyberpunk 2077 for now, but check-in for our weekly updates.
