In a recent interview with GameReactor, Game Level Designer Max Pears revealed that the team had to cut the wall-running mechanic in the game. This was supposed to be a feature and was seen in previous gameplay trailers.

Pears explained that the mechanic was removed due to design reasons. He does assure that there is still going to be a lot of flexibility in how players move.

The game level designer did not say that other mechanics were removed so there should be other mechanics that were shown already that could make do for flexibility. One example is the Mantis Blades, which should be able to pierce walls with its sharp blades. It could be used to climb walls while piercing the walls. Or there could be other mechanics, which could help.

Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on Nov. 19. It will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and later Google Stadia.
