CD Projekt Red's new futuristic RPG revealed

New details surface on the mystery project Cyberpunk 2077

Very little is known of CD Projekt Red's new futuristic RPG, but we do now at least have an official title - 'Cyberpunk 2077'.


That much was confirmed today by the developer, who also divulged a few new details regarding the game's plot and setting.

According to the blurb, the year 2077 is a "dark future" in which "advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity". You will be set loose in Night City, a "sprawling metropolis", and its surrounding areas.

You'll also get 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".

CDPR describes Cyberpunk 2077 as a "multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players", with a sandbox structure that'll offer "freedom of action and diversity in gameplay".

An official website for the game has also gone live, featuring blog posts from Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith.
