Cyberpunk 2077 lead reveals the smoke and mirrors behind one of the RPG’s most unique quests: “Our cinematic team wanted to kill me”

Arguably Cyberpunk 2077‘s most famous date scene – the underwater scuba dive with tech wizard Judy Alvarez – was made with smoke and mirrors, according to one lead developer. 

In PC Gamer’s lengthy roundtable chat with RPG developers, at around the 35:00 minute mark, CDPR‘s acting lead quest designer Sarah Gruemmer talked about a limitation that soon turned into a creative solution. “We have the quest where we go diving with Judy in Cyberpunk,” Grummer says, which then turned tricky when the team didn’t “have diving [animations] for NPCs in our game.”
