Cyberpunk 2077 will be more “breathtaking” due to its real-time global illumination, may not be downgraded

Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that a lot of PC gamers are looking forward to. However, and after everything that has happened with The Witcher 3, a lot of people are anxious to see whether the team will downgrade it. And, according to John Mamais, the game looks more “breathtaking” than what CDPR has showcased so far.

As John Mamais told OnMSFT:

“There is some stuff that hasn’t been talked about such as the way that it’s been lit. Our director keeps talking about the real-time global illumination system which we haven’t really seen in its full beauty yet. No one in the public has seen how it’s finally going to look. It’s going to look more breathtaking than we’ve seen so far.”

Now this could mean that a) the game won’t be downgraded from what has been shown so far and b) the game will look better than ever. Furthermore, the game will support real-time ray tracing effects on the PC.

Again, I’m pretty skeptical about this as CDPR had stated the same thing about The Witcher 3. Naturally, we’ll see for ourselves whether it will be able to match its pre-release screenshots when it comes out.

Cyberpunk 2077 will release in September 2020!
