Definitely agree with you there. I really love the world they have created and I want to be able to interact with it more. There is a bounty of potential in this and I am sure they are well aware of it. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do with it.If they get the bugs ironed out, they could just use the same city with a completely new story and characters that's more about the open-world and gangs instead of laser focused on 1 things like the current story. With a new main character and everything.
I played Cyberpunk as an RPG when it first came out (yes, I am old), a lot of my friends didn't like it, as it was still pretty crude when compared to the older more established games, but I always thought it had a lot of potential and deserved a lot more love than what it originally got (besides tech over magic every time for me). When they announced this game it was like a dream come true and I was impressed that they took it on. Looking forward to what the New Year will bring.
