Cyberpunk 2077 is a videogame, but it’s conception is slowly turning into a soap opera with many episodes. This sci-fi videogame was first announced, back in 2012, at the CD Projekt Red Summer Conference.
It is based on the tabletop RPG system created by Mike Pondsmith. The first edition of the game, released in 1998, was called Cyberpunk and it was followed by two more editions: 2020 (1990) and V3.0 (2005). Cyberpunk Red’s complete rule book release has been delayed for a year now, presumably to make sure the lore matches up with the videogame. Action takes place in a dystopian reality that has split from our own world in 1990.
The actual videogame
Cyberpunk 2077 is supposed to be a continuation of the events in Cyberpunk 2020 and takes an alternate path to that of Cyberpunk V3.0.
The original release date was set for April, then September, and now November. Fans of the game have been kept interested by the occasional trailer and interviews with creators.
But how come a yet unreleased game has fans so anxiously awaiting the opportunity to play it? Part of the explanation is sure to be related with the company responsible for the project, CD Projekt Red. If you need any clues about them, let’s just say they have all three The Witcher games under their belt. In other words, they’re legends. The adaptation of The Witcher books into videogames was widely successful, so the same is expected for Cyberpunk.
At last, if everything goes according to plan, the game should be out by November 19. Anyone else itching?
