Speaking with GamingBolt, CD PROJECKT RED stated that the art direction for Cyberpunk 2077 took multiple years to nail down.
According to Quest Director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]““It took us multiple years to figure out how we wanted to approach the game. At first, we started somewhere by the time The Witcher 3 was already in development. We created a smaller team that started working on the setting itself. How does it relate to the original [Cyberpunk] 2020; how the architecture and art style should be, and so on. It was a long process that took multiple years between the writers, between the concept artists, between the artists from The Witcher 3 project, and so on. It was a lot of work and a huge challenge since it was a new setting for us. But I think we’ve reached something very special and something truly interesting.”[/testimonials]
