In an episode of the podcast Kiwi TalkNZ, Hall was asked if he thought the situation was similar to 2016’s No Man’s Sky, which released to controversy and issues before going on to become a smash hit. Hall remarked that both games were successes, and Cyberpunk 2077 was factors larger.
“No Man’s Sky made a fortune and Cyberpunk made many fortunes so it’s difficult really to swing it as anything other than a resounding success,” he explained.
