CD Projekt’s Cyberpunk Title is Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED has revealed additional details about its upcoming “Cyberpunk 2020″ RPG adaptation, starting with its title: Cyberpunk 2077.

The jump of 57 years in the future (That’s how long Ripley was in hypersleep!) seems like it should allow CD Projekt some freedom on the project, while still keeping it true to the world created by Mike Pondsmith. We also have a number of new details about the game: namely, that it will be a “multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players” (just like the Witcher titles), set in a world where “advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity.”

The central setting of Cyberpunk 2077 is Night City and the areas surrounding it. Places that Cyberpunk 2020 players will recognize will also be included in the game, like the Afterlife bar and Forlorn Hope.

Here’s another quote from the press release:

“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 tuned 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.”

More information will be available at CD Projekt’s blog for the project, cyberpunk.net.

And also focused, it seems, on using prostitutes to sell their product. Not encouraging.
