The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a gigantic game. It can take you well over 100 hours to see and do everything that the RPG has to offer, with its main story alone making up a decent chunk of that. However, according to CD Projekt Red, the developer received "a lot of complaints" that The Witcher 3's main story was simply too long.
"Tremendous numbers of people played through [The Witcher 3] really far, but never made it to the end," Cyberpunk senior quest designer Patrick K. Mills said during the game's most recent developer livestream (as clipped on Twitch).
"We did shorten the main story [in Cyberpunk 2077], but we [still] have lots to do," Mills adds.
CD Projekt Red has already stated a number of times that Cyberpunk 2077 is a massive game. Night City, its setting, is supposed to be incredibly dense and packed with all sorts of side quests and activities. Honestly, the main story being slightly shorter than The Witcher 3's doesn't seem like a big deal given the scope of the project.
