Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt ventures beyond The Witcher with Cyberpunk

Quote:
CD Projekt, the Polish developer and publisher behind The Witcher series, announced a new game that will be based on R. Talsorian Games' pen-and-paper roleplaying game Cyberpunk.

This new title, which is billed as a "triple-A RPG," is the first new IP that CD Projekt has tackled since the company found success with its Witcher franchise in 2007. The developer has formed a new group made up of veterans from the Witcher team to work on it.

At CD Projekt's Summer Conference today, R. Talsorian Games chairman and Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith claimed that his franchise has more than 5 million players around the world across its various pen-and-paper RPGs and collectible card games.

Like the similar Shadowrun series, Cyberpunk debuted in the late 1980s and featured many staples from the cyberpunk genre established by authors like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, such as hackers, cybernetic implants, and megacorporations.

CD Projekt is collaborating with Pondsmith on the title, and says it intends to create a whole franchise of games based on Cyberpunk, just as it did with The Witcher book series created by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The company hasn't yet discussed planned platforms or release timing.

Though Cyberpunk's near-futuristic setting is very different from The Witcher's, CD Projekt says its new game will feature many hallmarks from that series, such as morally ambiguous choices, non-linear progression, and a complex story designed for mature audiences.

re: Cyberpunk 2077

When we first heard about Kingdoms of Amalur, my gut told me it was going to be a day one purchase, despite not having that much info on the game. I'm saying the same thing with this title, "Day one purchase."

I need more cyberpunk RPGs. Too much fantasy running around right now.

Yeah, exactly why I haven't picked up Amalur or Dragon's Dogma yet. Got burned out on seeing elves and dragons after playing both Dragon Age's, Witcher 2, and Skyrim last year. I did also get Diablo, but that's a different version of fantasy than what the other games are depicting.

Deus Ex: HR was one of my favorite games from last year, and there really haven't been many cyberpunk games the past few years as opposed to the countless fantasy RPG's and post apocalyptic shooters.

Glad to see more being made and with CD Projekt Red heading it I know the game will look superb and have a great story.

re: Cyberpunk 2077

I've played both Amalur and Dragon's Dogma...meh.

Have you played Syndicate? Not really an RPG (though it has skill trees), but I thought it was really fun, and set in a cool universe.

Looked interesting but I heard the strength of that game was co-op and the ship has sailed on that already. Single player was what 6-8 hours?

re: Cyberpunk 2077

I already knew I was in before I watched the conference video, but in the vid when he says, "... Cyberpunk is Blade Runner" or drops William Gibson's name, or mentions that the game "will not be for everyone", I'm now thinking, "damn, new number one most anticipated game ever for me."

The last two, Deus Ex 3, and Mass Effect 3, came so close to living up to my expectations, but fell apart at the end, now I probably have wait 2 to 4 years to see if this one can be the new G.O.A.T. for me.

Yes, SP is probably about that long. If you like that type of universe though, the combat is interesting and it's a beautiful game. You could probably get it cheap right now.
