CD Projekt RED Announces Cyberpunk!

CD Projekt RED just announced that their next AAA RPG game is Cyberpunk, based on the renowned Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper game of the same name. Awesome!

At their Summer Conference, CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski promised gamers that Cyberpunk will feature all of the great things found in the Witcher series and more. If you’re hesitant to be excited, please understand that this isn’t going to be another Shadowrun. No…RED is promising much more than a game loosely based on something great. The creator, Mike Pondsmith believes in them (he was at the conference) so it has to be a good idea right?


“For over two decades, I’ve been proud to say that Cyberpunk’s been the gold standard of what it means to be a true cyberpunk game. And it’s been a huge success for me and our many fans, with over 5 million players worldwide. But over all that time we haven’t found the right team to bring our cyberpunk world to full digital life — until now. CD Projekt Red is the team we’ve been hoping for. Their incredible work on The Witcher and The Witcher 2 shows that they share the same dedication and love of great games that we do at Talsorian. I’m especially stoked that they want our participation in making this game a fantastic project that will live up to everything Cyberpunk fans (old and new) have been waiting for. Trust me — this game is going to rock,” said “Maxmike” Pondsmith.

The game is still in the early developmental stages; RED went on to announce that they are looking for talented artists and programmers to help create the title. Meaning it won’t be released anytime soon. That said, they do have a second team (comprised of gaming veterans) who has been working on Cyberpunk so far. I for one can’t wait to check it out.
