So far, we’ve figured out how big the details we’ve seen in Cyberpunk 2077, but behind-the-scenes views of Chinese localization audio recordings give us even more insight into the size of the game. I was able to deepen it. Sneak Peak shows that voice work contains 15% to 20% more rows than The Witcher 3-includes both of its huge DLC add-ons. This can be a game that you end up playing for months.
The stats were tweeted with a photo of video game analyst Daniel Ahmad and a recording studio cast. According to Ahmad, China’s localization alone required “more than 150 voice actors, 100,000 lines, four recording studios, 10,000 hours.”
