So, read on for our breakdown of the question, how long is Cyberpunk 2077?

Cyberpunk 2077 is a huge open-world RPG that's packed full of content for players to experience over the course of the main game. While you still have the option to rush through the majority of the experience fairly quickly, you will be rewarded by taking part in the optional content and exploring the world to see what it has to offer. After all, Cyberpunk has a lot of side quests, collectables, cybernetic enhancements, weapons, and levels to earn, and you'll only experience most of this by putting a lot of time in. 

If you are looking to just play through the game's main story without interacting with much of the side content, Cyberpunk 2077 will take between 25 and 30 hours. However, the story changes marginally based on your choices throughout, which can also affect the ending state, so if you want to get all the endings (including the Cyberpunk 2077 secret ending) you can easily spend over 100 hours on repeat playthroughs. 

If you want to take your time in Night City and really explore the depth of what a cyberpunk world looks like, the game can easily run you up to 60 hours, depending on which content you go for. For completionists looking to finish all quests, find all collectables, earn and all achievements, and tick off any miscellaneous content, expect to put well over 100 hours into your playthrough. 


It's also worth mentioning that Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty was recently announced as the game's first and only expansion. With the time CD Projekt RED have had to develop it, and the effort they previously put into the Witcher 3 expansions, we could see this adding an extra 20-30 hours of content at least onto the base game. 

That's all for our explainer for how long it takes to beat Cyberpunk 2077, depending on your playstyle and how much content you want to engage with.
