Cyberpunk 2077 won't have loading screens


 

CD Projekt Red’s upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 was already looking pretty impressive when we got our first glimpse of a trailer at E3. Now, though, the developers have revealed something even more impressive: the game won’t have loading screens.

“[There are] no loading screens after the initial load into the game,” associate design director Kyle Rowley revealed on the Cyberpunk 2077 Discord server (via IGN).

Rowley explained that the only loading screen players should see in the game will be the one that pops up when first turning on the game. Once the game is running, players shouldn’t encounter any loading screens when moving from area to area or walking through doors. This also means that the different areas of the game will likely all be interconnected in some way, letting the player manually access each place instead of navigating there through a menu (thus triggering a loading screen).

We know that the version of Cyberpunk 2077 that was shown off at E3 was running on a beefed-up computer, one that PC gamers with bigger budgets may be able to replicate. The game is still a long way from release, but it will be interesting to see how CD Projekt makes the game run on lower-end PCs and consoles—and whether the vision of running the entire game with no loading screens pays off.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It's an ambitious move, but CD Projekt is trying to build a game without any loading screens.
