Posted on August 1, 2012, David Moss Witcher Devs Next Title Is a Glam Rock RPG
Players who enjoyed the myriad of skills and abilities available in the CD Project RED’s “The Witcher” and “The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings” will be excited to learn that they’ve now set their sites on Cyberpunk 2020. This time around they claim there will be even more freedom and more customization. And of course, they will no doubt bring their trademark excruciating difficulty to this new title as well.
Cyberpunk 2020 will be based on the RPG tabletop gam of the same name. The RPG ,in turn, is based off a book series written by the authors of the Mirrorshades group. The Cyberpunk 2020 series deals with technological body modifications and the loss of characters humanity as they become more than human. Stylistically the series draws it’s inspiration from the Glam Rock of the 1980′s. So basically the game is going to be Deus Ex meets David Bowie… that actually sounds awesome.
The Witcher games proved that CD Project RED had a great commitment to their source material and a desire to push players to their limits. If they repeat this formula for Cyberpunk 2020, it’ll no doubt be another hit.
