CD Projekt RED's Next Title Renamed Cyberpunk 2077
You know, to differentiate from Cyberpunk 2020, which it's based on.
10.19.12 - 3:50 AM

CD Projekt RED today officially named its next RPG Cyberpunk 2077. Previously the title, which is based on the pen-and-paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020, was simply known as Cyberpunk, and also draws inspiration from the movie Blade Runner and William Gibson's novels.

The player is dropped into the world in 2077 where, like other media with similar themes, the futuristic tech is both a blessing and a curse. The story is described as multi-thread and nonlinear, so you can expect a bit of an open world as you explore Night City and the area, including well known locations from Cyberpunk 2020 like Forlorn Hope, Afterlife (what other game has had a bar with that name?) and gang-controlled areas.

Players can expect freedom in gameplay with the game's sandbox style, though naturally, its mechanics will stay similar to the pen-and-paper title. Weapons, other arsenal and the all-important atmosphere also make up the futuristic setting - talk about a far cry from The Witcher.

Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't yet have a release date, but you can check out its newly-opened official website.
