Cyberpunk 2077 and the future of GTA

Dude calm your tits. Cyberpunk is a long way from even being published lmao. And what has CDPR even done to get people so hyped up anyway? Yeah they did Witcher 3 which was crazy good. But that's one title. One single good title and the world goes ballistic over this company. They are overhyped just because they have consumer friendly business practices. But remember the facts. They have only one really good title and a bunch of mediocre games.

 

I don't want to count how many groundbreaking titles Rockstar have under their belt.

 

Now, I expect Cyberpunk to actually be a very good game, but I find it ridiculous to compare it with the next, yet to be announced, GTA. It's like a guaranteed fact that the next GTA will smash the market records again and be the king of sandboxes, as it's been the case since 2001.

Nah cyberpunk is like witcher 3 a story driven rpg with a open world that emphasizes on choices to make you feel immersed in their world where rockstar is a open world crime sandbox genre I don't think you'll be able to mow down random civilians in cyberpunk . Theres some overlap but each game is gonna sell millions and millions of copies plenty of dough for everyone. 

 

That said cd project could definitely teach rockstar a thing or two when it comes to being more ethical to your consumers and workers.

 

Tl Dr cyberpunk wants to be like a open world tabletop rpg while gta wants to be a open world crime sandbox genre

Looking back at this thread it's still funny how people are so optimistic that Cyberpunk will never dethrone the almighty R* and GTA 6

 

Fast forward to 2020, Dan Houser left R*, RDR2 and RDO is still plagued with bugs and both game is pretty much dead, GTA V is still getting milked and will be first next-gen game they're going to release, and still no info about GTA 6. Meanwhile CDPR is still consumer-friendly as usual, and CP77 will be released soon

I wish the next GTA would come out in 2020 so it could go head to head with Cyberpunk 2077 for the GOTY awards. It'd be like watching two undefeated boxers go up against each other.

Sad that this isn't happening.

This reminds me of the "Watchdogs will kill GTA" threads that used to pop up back before GTAV's release. I'm seriously hyped for Cyberpunk, but there's no doubt in my mind that it'll go the same route as all of the other supposed 'GTA killers.' Despite the fact that quite a few of the posters on this site (myself included) don't even like/play GTAV or GTAO anymore, I know, just as well as all of you, that the moment R* even breathes 'GTAVI', the gaming world will come to a halt, just like it did on October 25th, 2011 (or was it the 26th? I don't remember).

There's a bit of a difference between those "GTA killers" and Cyberpunk. Cyberpunk is an RPG many of those other titles weren't and I mean RPG in the traditional sense with skills, levels, character classes, dialogue options, and branching storylines.

Ever since Rockstar has adopted the strange path of having heavily scripted games that restrict player's freedom, combined with open-world sandbox nature that is supposed to ironically promote player freedom, I think its competitors have a chance to make R* sweat a little. Because the pure sandbox freedom aspect of GTA games was their unique strength but now it has been weakened.

Cyberpunk 2077 has a chance of landing a good hit on R* since V hasn't aged well and VI is a no-show atm. And after playing RDR2, I'm quite convinced we won't see another SA and IV again. So yeah, Cyberpunk 2077 has a good chance but I wouldn't bet on it. Too much fanboyism from R* side IMO. Also Cyberpunk 2077 seemed to have carried forward some of the weaker aspects of Witcher 3 e.g the meele combat (in recent gameplay trailer).

Absolutely, and speaking of my own personal experience, an enjoyable, traditional RPG-styled game would keep me playing far longer than any GTA game, but judging by GTAV's total sales to date (I know, sales do not equal quality), brand equity alone will be able to carry the next GTA.

I can’t see it. I mean I expect Cyberpunk to be a great game but Rockstar are always that one step ahead. They have a lot more money and resources to put into their games. Rockstar games are always going to be a bit ahead of the curve.

 

I’m playing Witcher 3 atm after putting it off for years. And it is a fantastic game. And I say that as someone who’s never been a fan of the genre.

Cyberpunk looks cool and all but there’s no way that it’s touching GTA. As soon as VI gets announced than mostly everyone will forget about Cyberpunk 2077 lol.

Ya when it release in 2077, while Rockstar will still be re-releasing GTA 5. So yh I think that in 57 years we will finally see someone challenge Rockstar.

except ppl who like deep RPG games and a story with more than 3 ways or more to go.

 

i forgot to add; its not online focused. take that into consideration

and will have some DLCs for the storyline just like Witcher 3 but 10 times better

Unfortunately the game is being over hyped to hell. It will be a disappointment because of people's expectations. It's going to literally be Witcher 3 with guns and people keep acting as if this is another No Man's Sky where your imagination is the limit. Oh and Witcher 3 was a mediocre game.

what is this obsession with gamers and always trying to put video games and game companies in constant competition with each other.

 

Cyberpunk and the eventual GTA 6 are two different experiences that aim for two different things. Cyberpunk is a futuristic RPG, GTA 6 will be mostly a contemporairy look at Americana with fixed characters (with full backgrounds) to experience their stories and journeys vs. Cyberpunk's created character

 

not everything needs to be compared or contrasted

For starters, let's just hope it properly works since day one and won't require multiple patches and weeks to fix all this mess unlike their previous game. Only then can we start engaging in meaningless arguments such as this one.

What if GTA 6 turns out to take the rpg/roguelike route?

Cyberpunk 2077 could dethrone not only future GTAs but other open-world games, clearly in the sense of mechanics and gameplay.

In other respects they are matched.

>implying R* is any better

 

Just look at how RDRII PC launch ends up and how it also cause major bugs to the Console version which still remain unfixed to this day because R* killed it or sth

 

Even if CP77 did end up having issues, it'll be much easier for it to be fixed because CDPR is better at communicating with their community, unlike R* which support is only limited to delete cache/restart console/reinstall game

google the following: CYBERPUNK DELAY and check the dates

why would you think they would delay it and kill off most hype, it obviously doesnt benefit them

are they trying to make the game any better or just having fun f*cking around not earning any money?

probably the second one  by your logic

Laugh or not but it's greatest example, that you don't need sky high marketing budget to advertise your game. It also shows, that gameplay is most important thing, huge map won't help. At this point I'm thinking about buying Nintendo Switch only to play games made exclusively for this platform. We could only dream about such games when we were playing on Tamagotchi in 90s.
