Cyberpunk 2077 has had a turbulent lifespan thus far, and fans have been discussing the controversial police chases that take place in the game.
Policing systems in open-world games have been a mainstay for the likes of Grand Theft Auto for some time, but they haven’t been implemented in Cyberpunk the way that fans want up to this point.
Auto spawning and shaky AI have all been talking points when it comes to the police system in the game, but some are saying that an upgraded policing system could ‘ruin’ the experience of Night City.
Here’s everything you need to know about the discussion surrounding police chases in Cyberpunk 2077 on the r/cyberpunkgame Subreddit.
Cyberpunk 2077 Police Chases
Speaking on the r/cyberpunkgame Subreddit, a Redditor posed the question to other players about the police chase system that could end up implemented going forward.
They wrote: “Almost every day I see a post or comment on this subreddit either complaining about the lack of a police wanted system or getting excited about police chases, and I have to ask if y’all have really thought through what it is you want.
“Right now the wanted score pops up when you kill a civilian or police officer, and then if you run away quickly enough, it eventually goes away on its own.
“It seems like there are some people who think this either needs to be eternally persistent or there should be yet another mechanic added to this already mechanically rich (or bloated, depending on who you ask) game for reducing wanted levels.
“The first option is clearly horrible. Are you saying that anytime I accidentally hit a civilian with a stray bullet or car, the police should chase me til the end of the world? This would make the game literally unplayable. The second option is less of a game-breaker (like paying a fine as in RDR2 or elbow grease mini-jobs as in AC2) but would this really add something meaningful to the game world?”
Policing in Cyberpunk 2077
The discussion has been fierce regarding the implementation of a better policing system, with one Redditor noting: “People want GTAPunk 2077. Sorry, people THINK they want GTAPunk2077. They don’t.”
Another player could state that the policing system in another Rockstar stable, Red Read Redemption 2, is tedious and would be terrible if implemented in CP2077. They said: “The police/wanted system in RDR2 was a tedious, anti-fun, timewasting chore, and I’m so happy CDPR understands that good gameplay comes before realism.”
It remains to be seen if CD Projekt Red will be making more immersion changes regarding the policing system in the game, but for now, it seems as though some of the player base at least doesn’t want to see a huge overhaul.
