Cyberpunk 2077 looks to be a massive game, and part of that will be the wealth of sidequests. These "Street Stories" are essentially how you live out your life as a mercenary, and CD Projekt Red says that its experience with The Witcher 3 taught the studio just how meaningful sidequests can be. So much, in fact, that it set up a dedicated team for them.
"After [The Witcher 3:] Wild Hunt, we actually founded a completely new team, the open-world team, which is creating some amazing content to fill this world with things that are meaningful," said quest designer Phillip Weber. "We want to make this [so that] you can do many, smaller things around the city, but they're all cool and unique in their own way."

Senior level designer Miles Tost added that the lesson from The Witcher 3 was that "even simple tasks can be fun and exciting if you pack them up in a cool story."
This came as part of a larger discussion on how sidequests will work in the upcoming open-world RPG. The deep-dive presentation covered everything from character creation to why the studio hired actual city planners to help create a vision for Night City.
