Cyberpunk 2077 releases this week, and the latest role-playing game from CD Projekt Red is massive in scope–despite the studio’s claims that it’s actually shorter than The Witcher 3, it’s still big. We’ve been playing it for review, and now we know exactly how long it will take you to get through.
How long is Cyberpunk 2077?
If you are rushing through the main storyline in Cyberpunk 2077, you can expect it to last you about 30 hours. This number can increase to around 40 hours if you are doing side missions fairly regularly. Should you want to see everything the game has to offer, you are looking at a much, much higher figure.
For comparison, the aggregate site How Long To Beat estimates that it will take you around 50 hours to beat The Witcher 3 if you are focused only on the main story, with dozens more hours if you are seeing everything in the game.
This lines up with CD Projekt Red’s previous claim that the game would be a little shorter than The Witcher 3. This was partially due to players’ feedback that The Witcher 3 was too long.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out now for Xbox One, PS4, Stadia, and PC, with backwards compatability across the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Full next-gen versions will arrive in 2021, and there is also a separate multiplayer component on the way. However, CD Projekt Red is treating it as a separate game rather than a mode that wasn’t ready for launch.
