There is some interesting thing with the map. Captured from E3 trailer:I'm a little bummed about the city being the only map. I was hoping to see outskirts or wastelands and I'm a big fan of the multi-region approach. Maybe we will, as this is still a sketchy interview.
What was this?
Warning: shit audio. Gotta say, I'm quite excited about the interactive dialog system.
I wish only the best for Sebastian, but the question here is who replaced him Creative Director is a heavy post one that impacts the game a lot. Let's hope its someone with the experience needed to finish Cyberpunk 2077.I find this news personally a bit sad. I have been a fan of Sebastian ever since I learned he was a lead writer of Witcher 2 - whose story I found very well crafted, I loved the political nature of it. He has been at CDP for so long and being assigned to Cyberpunk, I took it as a sign of certain quality.
Now obviously we have no idea why he left, maybe his duties on Cyberpunk have been finished and Activision Blizzard offered him irresistible opportunity.
Still, Leonard Boyarsky comes to mind, he was lead developer on original Fallout, Vampire Bloodlines and Arcanum, joined Blizzard after Troika went bankrupt, but never really did anything of note there (his work on Diablo 3 was mostly scrapped) and so eventually after years he left for Obsidian to make real RPGs again (Outer Worlds).
I hope Sebastian will either get to make a proper RPG (not action nonsense with microtransaction that blizzard does), or comes back to CDP one day.

Hoping this is the case. While there is always turnover, it would be somewhat alarming for a major position holder to move on before their project was finished, so hoping you're right, and maybe most of this person's work was completed. Could have just been a situation too where maybe the person was offered a bunch more $ and simply couldn't turn it down. I dunno.

May merge. Dunno what to talk about here - People come and go from CDPR all the time. Happened throughout Witcher 3, will happen throughout Cyberpunk 2, whatever it ends up being called.
Pretty much business as normal.
Good writer though.
