Cyberpunk RPG Announced: CD Projekt RED Studio Taking You To A Gritty Future

Cyberpunk, a futuristic RPG, was just announced by CD Projekt Red at a pre-E3 2012 press conference. Based on the 1988 pen-and-paper game of the same name, Cyberpunk is a role-playing game for mature audiences, and will feature realistic, brutal violence and be set in a rich, futuristic world.

Although it uses the same engine, this isn't The Witcher 2 with a future skin; Red would like to set a new standard in the futuristic RPG genre with an exceptional gaming experience featuring a varied selection of different classes, customizable characters, a full arsenal of weapons, upgrades, implants, and cool high-tech toys.

Here's how they describe the title:

"Cyberpunk will be designed for mature and demanding players who expect to be treated seriously, and the game will be richly detailed, non-linear, and with a complex and gripping story. This much is expected from the talented studio, but the new universe brings with it some new twists in their game design. Players will experience the world through their own, unique characters chosen from different classes – be they blood-thirsty mercenaries or cunning hackers – that they will equip with vast selection of cybernetic implants and deadly weapons. As in the Witcher series, players will face morally ambiguous choices, their actions influencing events in the world at large and the fate of the individuals they encounter."

Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the original Cyberpunk, was at hand for the press conference in Warsaw, Poland, and said, “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."

We'll be bringing you more screenshots, details and video of Cyberpunk as they become available, so stay tuned.
