CD Projekt developing Cyberpunk RPG

CD Projekt Red, the developer behind the critically acclaimed The Witcher games has announced its next AAA RPG – a project based in the Cyberpunk universe.

For those unfamiliar, Cyberpunk is a 1988 pen-and-paper RPG from the mind of Mike Pondsmith. Here it will be translated into a game similar to CDP’s previous work, complete with a mature story, non-linear structure and rich detail. Perhaps imagine something a bit like Deus Ex, and maybe we’re getting there.

Players will be able to choose their own class, unlike The Witcher‘s pre-defined role. It’s being developed by a new team within the studio, made up of Witcher vets and newbies. Finer details like release date and, oh, what we’ll actually play it on weren’t mentioned, though the PC is a safe bet.

Of course, the dev also has another AAA game in the works, though that remains unannounced.
