CD Projekt Red Details Next Game, Cyberpunk 2077
While we’ve known for a while that the Polish developer behind The Witcher, CD Projekt Red, was working on a new RPG loosely referred to as Cyberpunk, today the company published a press release to announce a new name, and to reveal the basis for the game’s world and story: Mike Pondsmith’s pen-and-paper role playing game, Cyberpunk 2020. The game, now officially called Cyberpunk 2077, will take place in his world, and will be overseen by Pondsmith himself.
Here’s what the game-making legend had to say about the new partnership with CDP Red:
“The Team has to love the material. The Team has to want to be faithful to the material. The Team has to have the skills to execute the material and see that vision through to the end. They have to be on fire with the desire to make an extraordinary game.
And that leads, at last, to why we hooked up with CD Projekt RED.”
The game will be a role playing game, sure, but will also offer players a sandbox-style environment, including a “multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players.” You know what that means: ROBOT SEX. Don’t say I didn’t call it.
The game’s progress will be documented at its official website, Cyberpunk.net, so be sure to check there if you’re eager for more info and updates. Personally, I am officially INTERESTED. Who doesn’t like crazy sci-fi cyberpunk role playing games? The answer is exactly NOBODY.
