The creators promise that Cyberpunk 2077 will be true to the essence of the cyberpunk genre
CD Projekt RED also announced that its triple-A game based on renowned pen-and-paper-RPG designer Mike Pondsmith's Cyberpunk system is now known as Cyberpunk 2077. 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. A multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players (a CD Projekt RED trademark) will take place in the sprawling metropolis of Night City and its surroundings. Players will have a chance to visit places well known from Cyberpunk 2020, including a combat zone completely taken over by gangs, the legendary Afterlife joint and the nostalgic Forlorn Hope.
