CD Projekt RED producer Richard Borzymowski spoke discussed in an interview at Gamescom 2019 about Night City, which is the setting of upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 map discussion

The producer revealed that the game’s map, Night City, will be a bit smaller compared to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s map. He did confirm that it will not be lacking in content and will be as dense as the compared game. He said that the map will feel like The Witcher’s world squeezed into one city.

If you look at pure surface [in terms of] square kilometers, then Cyberpunk 2077 might even be a little bit smaller than The Witcher 3, but it’s the density of the content, taking the world of The Witcher and squeezing it right in, deleting the wilderness between.

…in The Witcher we were an open world with vast lanes and forests in between smaller cities and larger cities like Novigrad, but in Cyberpunk 2077 we’re set in Night City. It’s an integral part of the setting; it’s essentially a protagonist if you want to call it that, so it has to be denser. It wouldn’t give us the end effect we wanted to achieve if the city wouldn’t be believable… so we packed it full of life.

The game will be coming to retail stores on April 16, 2020. It will be available on PlayStation 4.
