Fans Mock Cyberpunk 2077 Designer’s Bizarre Response for Leaving Out Police Chases

Published 12/21/2021, 10:08 AM EST


Cyberpunk 2077 quest designer Pawel Sasko has revealed the actual reason why the open-world title doesn’t feature police chases in the gameplay. And it seems that according to him, it’s because the developing team didn’t have enough time to add the functionality before the launch itself.

However, adding to this, he also mentions that the police chase wasn’t necessary at all, since many other upcoming games like Elden Ring and Sonic won’t have it either. And there you have it. Needless to say, the latter part of his reasoning didn’t go down well with the fans.

CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a good response in terms of gameplay recently. This is actually a positive sign for the controversial title that only received backlash and criticism for a long time. However, it has once again found itself in a bad light after Pawel Sasko, the quest designer, responded to why the game lacks well-executed police chases.

Fans not pleased after Cyberpunk 2077 with quest designer’s comparison involving Elden Ring and Sonic

Pawel Sasko recently had a livestream session where he talked a lot about the CDPR project. When asked about why Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t feature police chases, just like other open-world games, his response, as reported by VGC, was:

“I don’t think that the Sonic or the Elden Ring open-world game will have it”.

Adding further, he also gave an actual reason, which was that the team was unable to put it in the game just before its release. And that’s why they eventually gave up on it. But this answer didn’t really satisfy the majority of Cyberpunk 2077 fans. Moreover, they were furious to know that Sasko compared the game to two of the most anticipated open-world projects coming up next year.

Many players who are excited about Elden Ring and also Sonic couldn’t understand the reason why Pawel Sasko mentioned these two in his defense for Cyberpunk 2077, not having police chases. According to them, it was just an excuse to hide the issues during the game’s development phase.

Here are the fans’ reactions to the quest designer’s response and reasoning regarding police chases in Cyberpunk 2077:

There was only one supportive reaction from a fan who thought otherwise.
