CD Projekt Red were keen to announced Cyberpunk, their new RPG game back in May, however we haven't heard anything about it since....until now.
Community manager Marcin Momot spoke briefly about the custom player options and diversive plot, promising "way more freedom with customzation of the main protagonist" than in The Witcher games.
As opposed to the regular fantasy set-up with mages, warriors and archers, we're going for something different. In Cyberpunk, each character role will offer a set of special skills that will impact your stats in many different ways. That's where the challenge kicks in, we want to create a game where character customization will be strongly tied with the plot. Now going from that, we believe that we can make a game where, with many different role choices, you will get a very strong, engaging story, just like it was with The Witcher."
"We definitely want to give players way more freedom with customization of the main protagonist then they had with Geralt in The Witcher series. We are planning on letting them change their statistics, equipment, implants and much more."
"Cyberpunk's story takes place all over the world, but we're going to focus on it's most characteristic venue - Night City. One thing is certain, we want to make a game with an open, living world that stays true to the source material,"
We're convinced, and we're sure MMGN reporter Nathan Misa will be jumping for joy as he attempts to speed run The Witcher titles in anticipation for this next epic.
