CD Projekt RED.
A bunch of polish coders and developers so fond of fightin’, drinkin, and wimin they went out of their way to adapt the racy, gory fantasy works of novelist Andrzej Sapkowski
This resulted in a duo of Witcher
titles, the latter of which easily counts among the most impressive this generation!
For their next trick, they have their sights sets on the Cyberpunk
role playing games, written by Mike Pondsmith
and published by R. Talsorian Games.
I’m already onboard.
And I know approximately zero on the latter (Seriously, I’m not even confident that’s the correct spelling!)

So, What is Cyberpunk 2077?
According to a recent CD Projekt RED
press release,"This is the world of 2077. The gap between high and low is bigger than ever. Drugs, violence, braindance, psychos on the loose... Will you be able to function in this defunct society or end up a BD-junky with nothing left, set aside like garbage - still living someone's else life, not aware of what's going on around you? Whether you like it or not - this is the age of braindance decadence; this is Cyberpunk 2077."
Don’t worry, that wasn’t meant to make a lick of sense to you.
Boldly stating it’s coming when it’s ready, according to xin.msn CD Projekt RED
might not even get around to Cyberpunk 2077
until 2015, due to previous commitments.
But until then, this ought to keep you going...
A sandbox futuristic-actioner with distinct character classes, Cyberpunk 2077
concerns itself with Psychos
. Admittedly, we’re all a bit concerned about psychos, but here the term refers to individuals that have upgraded themselves with so many augmentations, not wearing pants and slicing up untold civilians seems like totally reasonable life choices.
Such anti-social behaviour is likely to encourage a visit from similarly upgraded Night City Police Department’s Psycho Squad.
These officers are as likely to put a bullet in your brain as they are hire you into their elite.
Actually, in 100% of cases we’ve seen, they do both and in that order.Cyberpunk 2077
is literally a generation away.
And it’s safe to say, gorgeous aesthetics and nonsensical statements aside, we know literally nothing about it.
Apart from the fact CD Projekt RED
is on the case.
For me that’s enough.
I suspect I’m not alone in that!
