Cyberpunk 2077 Dev Has Played For Over 175 Hours And Still Hasn't Finished It
The QA lead at CDPR is taking his time looting and seeing everything in Cyberpunk 2077.
A CD Projekt Red QA tester has apparently not finished Cyberpunk 2077 after playing for 175 hours on one of his many playthroughs. [Update: Now that we've played the game for our Cyberpunk 2077 review, you can see how long it takes to beat the main campaign.]
Lukasz Babiel, the quality assurance lead at CDPR, posted a screenshot on Twitter of his total playtime over the weekend. According to the figure shared, Babiel, who started Cyberpunk 2077 as a Nomad, has put in a little more than 175 hours and still hasn't seen the credits roll.
When asked if he was going for a completionist playthrough, Babiel said he's taking his time looting and seeing everything on the hardest difficulty.
"Not really, that's just one of my ongoing slow-paced playthroughs on the hardest difficulty where I play more stealthy than usual, loot everything, use every feature the game has to offer, I take my time," Babiel said.
While Babiel has played for over 175 hours without finishing the massive open-world action-adventure game, it's not indicative of how long it takes to wrap up the campaign. The studio has previously said Cyberpunk 2077 will be "slightly shorter" than The Witcher 3, which takes anywhere from 50 hours to 190 hours to finish, according to How Long To Beat. Cyberpunk 2077's map is also supposed to be smaller but more tightly packed than The Witcher 3's. Be careful of spoilers, as physical copies of Cyberpunk 2077 are now out in the wild.
