On its way to the scheduled November 19 release, Cyberpunk 2077 has a script that will hit — and surpass — the one-million-word barrier. Last week, CD Projekt RED’s localization manager Yuki Nishio posted an image on Twitter that shows the entire script printed out and it looks insane.

With more than a month left until the long-awaited release day, Cyberpunk 2077 is already generating a lot of hype. Some elements are not official, but many sources hint at a 30 to 40-hour long main story that can be pushed near the 100-hour barrier by going through all the side quests available at launch. In the future, the updates should bring gamers back into the story and the upcoming content promises to be more complex than what was released for The Witcher 3

Although CD Projekt RED localization manager Yuki Nishio shared this on Twitter last week, it took a few days for the story to hit the English-speaking side of the world. A few hours ago, it finally blew up all over Reddit and it generated a large amount of — more or less — funny replies. Yuki Nishio's tweet that came alongside the image showing the impressive amount of written material that needs to be localized reads the following: "I'm a Gold Master! We have reached one big milestone and will continue to brush up! There is still more work to be done! And since it's a good opportunity (although it's only a part), please take a picture of the Japanese dubbed script."

The list of funny replies that the posts received on Reddit include one-liners such as "Its all small writing too" or "and then some clown plugs in a big old fan..." but they can get rather long and interesting. Cyberpunk 2077 will surely help Sony and Microsoft sell more consoles, but it could also drive Google Stadia subscriptions forward as well, not to mention the madness concerning high-end PC parts that one would need to play the game with everything pushed all the way up. 

The recommended system requirements are not outrageous — AMD Ryzen 3 3200G or Intel Core i7-4790 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB or AMD Radeon R9 Fury, 12 GB of memory, 70 GB storage, and Windows 10 64-bit — but a system that barely meets these specs will probably be unable to run the game with everything on max at 2K and beyond.
