CD Projekt RED Says RPGs Should Look Better than Shooters

CD Projekt RED is known for its role-playing games, like The Witcher and the upcoming Cyberpunk. The Witcher 2 pushes the boundaries of how an RPG, and most other games, should look graphically. The Witcher games are also some of the most popular (and well-received) around, so you can be sure CD Projekt RED has some pride in its games. The company's co-founder, Marcin Iwinski, and head of marketing, Michal Platkow-Gilewski, recently sat down to an interview with GamesBeat to discuss Cyberpunk and a few other things. For starters, Iwinski believes there is no reason for RPGs to "look worse" than shooters. He believes RPGs should look better in addition to telling that amazing story. All the new advancements in technology should mean RPGs can enable all the graphical "bells and whistles," which Iwinski wants CD Projekt to deliver on as well. Great graphics and a great story will be a winning combination, and I trust that CD Projekt can deliver both for Cyberpunk.
