While no definitive time has been set just yet, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red revealed during a Q&A with Reddit user u/shavod that the game would not be as long as The Witcher 3. For those who don’t remember, The Witcher 3 could take anywhere from 50 to 100 hours, depending on how much you played of the additional content. This doesn’t include the additional 30 hours of content release in the DLC for the game, either.

Unfortunately, “shorter than The Witcher 3” could mean a number of things. The game could be multiple hours shorter, logging in at 25-30 hours for the main content. Or it could just be a few hours shorter than The Witcher 3. We don’t really know, so all we can do is speculate about the actual length right now, but we’ll update this article when a more definitive answer is available.

Sadly, nobody outside of CDPR really knows exactly how long it will take to beat Cyberpunk 2077. What we do know is that the game will offer a ton of replayability – way more than The Witcher 3 – thanks to the game’s constantly branching story. The goal for the developers was to create a story that is affected greatly by the decisions that you make, and the choices you decide upon can ultimately change the outcome of major story points. This, CDPR feels, will make almost every playthrough unique.

      The Witcher 3 with all he additional content is like 200 hours and that's not being a completionist.

      Given the open ended nature of Cyberpunk I imagine it will be even longer!!!!!!

      Don’t care about length. These days I don’t have time set aside for 60+ hour games. RDR2 has taken me forever to get through :) I usually mainline the major story and sprinkle in side quests. I’m okay with not seeing everything.

      It was always going to be shorter than Witcher 3, I just hope they can get the crowds on the streets up, the trailers are wonderful but the demo footage from 1.5 weeks ago, the streets are fucking barren :/ It otherwise looks wonderful.
      Shame about the train system to, but so be it.
      (Especially including it in the original trailer!)
