It has been confirmed in an interview by Gamestar with Level Designer Miles Tost they have confirmed there will be no subways or ridable trains in Cyberpunk 2077. I personally found this to be surprising considering how prominently it had been shown in Advertising campaigns for the game. What do yall think about the news?
subways are not entertaining. The main thing people do on subways is read books, use their phones. It wouldn't be a good use of developer time. They'd have to throw a lot of gameplay in there to be worth it.
Cutscenes don't usually represent gameplay, its also clear that they used cgi instead of actors/film for the commercials. I can see now, how this can be problematic, since there is a less obvious difference between commercial and gameplay. Perhaps that needs to be looked in to.

Why was months of work on the train system done than. That's called mismanagement.
the train system was developed from a city environment creating point of view, and work. There are many other layers of work after that in developing the spaces players will actually use. Its not a waste to do that, because thats the job of the environment designers, to create a believable city. Actually making functional player interactable content is a different level of work
