The Polish game developer CD Projekt has postponed the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 for the third time. However, the studio has not stopped revealing more of what their long-awaited title has to offer. The game is often compared to GTA 5, but a new feature that was announced by the company can frustrate Rockstar Games fans.

Cyberpunk 2077 and the GTA franchise have quite a few things in common. The biggest one is the opportunity to provide players with an open, ambitious, and crime-ridden world. But, as the website ComicBook has confirmed, while GTA is largely an action and sandbox game, Cyberpunk 2077 is a deep RPG, which provides some important gameplay differences.

One of the developers who has spoken more about the differences is the senior designer of CD Projekt RED, Miles Tost. According to Tost, unlike GTA, Cyberpunk 2077 players will not be able to steal any vehicle they want in the game. If you are a dedicated GTA player, you'd understand how frustrating this can be.

Also according to Tost, players will need to focus on specific in-game statistics to steal all the vehicles and they will not be able to take possession of the stolen cars willy-nilly like in GTA. Presumably, the technology in 2077 will prevent non-owners from taking possession of future automobiles.

On the other hand, "if you want to go out on a rampage and have no remorse, then you have got the option, and that’s fine with us," said Max Pears, another developer at CD Projekt RED.

But there's a catch. Pears added that “once you start to play the missions and see the amount of options you have. I think that will make players stop and think a little bit before doing something reckless. We’ve seen a lot of people default to that ‘GTA mode’ and then after a little bit they realize how many things are different and adjust how they play".

While Cyberpunk 2077 has had its problems here and there, the game is scheduled to be released, after 3 postponements, on December 10th. The hotly anticipated title will be available on many platforms: Google Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
