CD Projekt Red is a Polish game development studio most widely known for the Witcher game series. What set these titles apart from other fantasy action RPGs of this generation was their deeply rooted foundation in lore and expert storytelling. This could be attributed to the fiction based on the work of Polish author, Andrzej Sapkowski.
Now, another world will take form and shape under their masterful guidance.
Hit the break for all the glorious details.
Based on Mike Pondsmith’s Cyberpunk series, CD Projekt Red’s next title will be Cyberpunk 2077. An official website was launched as well as a synopsis for what fans can expect:
“The cyberpunk atmosphere, well known from William Gibson’s novels, the ‘Blade Runner’ movie and the famous pen-and-paper game, ‘Cyberpunk 2020’, will surround the player. The creators promise that ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ will be true to the essence of the cyberpunk genre. Players will be thrown into the dark future of the year 2077 and into a world where advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity. A multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players (a CD Projekt RED trademark) will take place in the sprawling metropolis of Night City and its surroundings. Players will have a chance to visit places well known from ‘Cyberpunk 2020’, including a combat zone completely taken over by gangs, the legendary Afterlife joint and the nostalgic Forlorn Hope.
”Freedom of action and diversity in gameplay will be delivered thanks to the sandbox nature of the game and mechanics inspired by the ‘Cyberpunk 2020’ pen-and-paper system, fine tun#mce_temp_url#ed to meet the requirements of a modern RPG. Gameplay will pump adrenaline through players’ veins and be consistent with the celebrated Cyberpunk spirit – rebellion, style, edge, uncertainty. And of course, a cyberpunk reality cannot be deprived of murderous steel – guns, rifles, implants, dozens of gadgets and other varied pieces of equipment needed to survive on the streets of Night City. The developers are focused on making the technology of 2077 credible and exciting.”
