How long does it take to beat the main story of Cyberpunk 2077? Learn the answer to this question in our complete game length guide.

Game Length

Main Story Only

On our initial playthrough going directly through the Main Story, without completing any of the Side Jobs, we were able to complete the game in approximately 21 gameplay hours.

Our first playthrough was on Easy difficulty, so keep in mind that the game will likely take longer to finish on higher difficulty settings.

100% Completion

Perfect completion in Cyberpunk 2077 is not easy to measure. Not only does the game feature a host of Side Jobs and GIgs to complete, but it also features multiple unique endings.

In order to achieve all of these endings, players must go back a significant degree to alter major decisions. For this reason, it will likely take players well over 100 hours to complete all the content the game has to offer.

Is Cyberpunk 2077 Short or Long?

When compared to the sprawling Witcher 3, with a main story length of over fifty hours and hundreds of side quests, Cyberpunk 2077 may feel short in comparison.

However, the sheer amount of choices with long-lasting results available in the game outstrips the quest options of previous games. Even for players who've managed to get through every Job, many of the Jobs offer alternate endings depending on the choices made and manner of handling the Job.

These points, combined with the Perk and Attribute customization options making for a unique experience each time, allow near-endless replayability that well exceeds its relatively short main story time.

It may be fair to say that Cyberpunk 2077 is a short game, but only if you want it to be.
