CD Projeckt, the developers behind the great ‘The Witcher 2’ have announced that they will be developing an RPG based on the hit pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk. The game was announced earlier today at a conference in Poland called Summer Conference.
On the game, the pen and paper games designer had this to say –
Original “Cyberpunk” game designer Mike Pondsmith was at hand for the conference in Warsaw, Poland. “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 team promises a rich universe with non-linear RPG gameplay with a class-based character system. Players can choose to be one of a few different class types, such as a mercenary or even a hacker and many others depending on their own gameplay preferences.
