Although “Cyberpunk 2077” (Cyberpunk 2077) was a sensation when it was launched at the end of 2020, it was subsequently criticized because the quality of the game did not match the initial publicity. “(Cyberpunk: Edgerunners) animation has ushered in a resurgence of popularity, and it has also excited veteran developers.
Recently, the chief mission designer Paweł Sasko, who has always posted the updates of “Dianyu Renke 2077” on Twitter, was live streaming on Twitch, happily sharing with players the joy of seeing millions of players returning, and at the same time expressing this in his words. Two years of hardships for the team.
“When you put so much effort into something, especially for people who have been in development for 6, 7, 8 years, from the very beginning, it’s hard to describe how it feels,” Sasko choked on the live broadcast. : “So seeing players like our work now, it all feels unreal.”
“Dian Yu Ren Ke 2077” initially carried the well-known movie star Keanu Reeves to participate in the performance of the propaganda momentum, the pre-order alone has leveled the development cost, but the game has not been able to achieve satisfactory quality after many delays, investors and high-level executives Under the pressure of overtime work, this game was released on all platforms, and tragedies occurred immediately (especially on PS4 and Xbox One), which became one of the negative teaching materials for the failure of the game in recent years.
Sasko emphasized: “After the game was released, I couldn’t believe what was in front of me, it took a while before I faced reality, but at the beginning I couldn’t believe it, and I remember my girlfriend Sapphire watching I was completely devastated at the time.”
Due to the instructions of the investors and high-level executives, “Dian Yu Ren Ke 2077” was launched in an incomplete quality, and the development team that continued to repair the content was the one who carried the bitter fruit. It has reached the peak of 800,000 people since it was launched at the same time. In just a few days The popularity has cooled down rapidly in the past month, and until now I finally see players returning again, it is not difficult to imagine how moved Sasko, a front-line developer, is.
Interestingly, as more players joined Night City due to the influence of animation in “Electric Rebel 2077”, another topic of discussion began to arise on the Internet. Perhaps the original “Electric Rebel 2077” was not so bad. It’s just over-hyped.
However, in the final analysis, the biggest contributor to the popularity of “Dian Yu Ren Ke 2077” is still the influence of the animation “Edge Walker” produced by TRIGGER Trigger Club. The animation team used the scene of the night city in the game to form this wave of holy land tours. Trends, of course, many popular characters and Mods in the animation are also the motivation for players to return to the pot and enter the pit.
