Developer Played 175 Hours Of Cyberpunk 2077 & Still Hasn’t Completed It

A developer at CD Projekt Red has played more than 175 hours of Cyberpunk 2077 and yet still hasn’t finished the game.

Lukasz Babiel is a lead QA tester at CD Projekt Red who recently revealed their playtime on Twitter with the popular “How it Started vs. How it’s Going“ meme.

Naturally many had assumed that the 175 hours accumulated playing Cyberpunk 2077 was an overall completion time, but it seems this is not the case.

When a follower simply asked Babiel: “Completion time? 😉”, Babiel revealed that nope, this is just their ongoing playtime as they’ve not even finished the game yet.

In the response to the fan, Babiel said: “Not really, that’s just one of my ongoing slow paced playthroughs on the hardest difficulty where I play more stealthy than usual, loot everything, use every feature the game has to offer, I take my time 😉”.

Though Babiel’s playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077 will no doubt exceed the 200 hour-plus completion range, this won’t be a representation of everyone’s experience with the game.

Babiel is playing on the hardest difficulty using the slower-paced stealth approach. A different gamer might play Cyberpunk 2077 on a lower difficulty and might like to run-and-gun their way through the game. Also, as QA, it’s Babiel’s job to scour the game for bugs and issues, which naturally leads to a slower playthrough.

Some will likely finish the game in at least half that time if they speed through or don’t attempt all sidequests. For gamers such as me and Babiel who like to take our time and explore, it’s going to take us much longer to finish a game like Cyberpunk 2077.

So whether you’re someone that plays in a hurry or one that takes your time, the playtime revealed by Lukasz Babiel at least gives us an indication to the huge scope of Cyberpunk 2077.
