Cyberpunk 2077 level designer Max Pears recently explained the decision in a recent interview with GameReactor: "Ah, the wall running - that is something that we removed due to design reasons, but there's still going to be a lot of flexibility in how you move, that's for sure."

The previous gameplay trailers revealed a player-character using Mantis Blades (the Cyberpunk 2077's sword-like appendages that can be hidden inside your own arms) in combination with wall-running to get to hard-to-reach spots.

You can watch the wall-running action in the 48-minute mark of this IGN video. The clip reveals Mantis Blades running along a wall, scan some enemies, before leaping down and killing them.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia on November 19. The enhanced version of the game is also in development for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
