CD Projekt RED held a press conference today in which it revealed Cyberpunk 2077 as the official name of its upcoming RPG set in the universe of the PnP game Cyberpunk 2020.
The Poland-based developer promises that the game “will be true to the essence of the cyberpunk genre.” The game is planned to have a mature and multi-threaded, nonlinear storyline that will take place in a metropolis called Night City. Locations from the PnP game, such as a combat zone completely controlled by gangs like Afterlife and Forlorn Hope will also feature in the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 aims to be a sandbox-styled game that will feature various customization for the player’s character, including a vast array of weaponry ranging from guns, rifles, implants, and other sorts of futuristic gadgetry.
The studio has yet to show any sort of in-game footage or screenshots, but some interesting concept art featuring the game’s logo, an attack copter, and a bloodied, sparsely-clothed bionic chick (check the screenshots page for all of that).
After you’re done ogling at the slick wallpapers and blog entries on the newly-established Cyberpunk 2077 website, you might want to give the newly-released trailer for the Mac version of CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 2 a look.
