CD Projekt RED Studio announced today during the Summer Conference that the developer is working on a triple-A title based on the pen-and-paper Cyberpunk RPG system, created by Mike Pondsmith. The game will allow players to become such classes as mercs or hackers, with a vast number of tech equipment like cybernetic implants and futuristic armament.
According to Pondsmith, “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,” he reassured.
The developer has also announced that it is looking for talented artists, programmers and designers to help create the Cyberpunk title.
