CD Projekt RED has officially announced that Cyberpunk 2077 is the title of its in-development RPG.
The game is set in the world created by Mike Pondsmith, one of the fathers of the cyberpunk genre and the creator of the cult-classic pen-and-paper RPG, Cyberpunk.
“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,” commented Pondsmith.
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. We’re promised a multi-thread, non-linear story designed for mature players that will take place in the sprawling metropolis of Night City and its surroundings.
