CD Projekt has given a name to its previously announced Cyberpunk game. According to the developer it will be called Cyberpunk 2077, and take the form of an RPG sandbox title set in Night City.
"The Team has to love the material. The Team has to want to be faithful to the material. The Team has to have the skills to execute the material and see that vision through to the end. They have to be on fire with the desire to make an extraordinary game.
And that leads, at last, to why we hooked up with CD Projekt RED," said Mike Pondsmith.
The developer went on to add that "Players will be thrown into the dark future of the year 2077 and into a world where advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity," promising that "Cyberpunk 2077 "will be true to the essence of the cyberpunk genre."
The sandbox nature of the game and mechanics have been inspired by Cyberpunk 2020's pen-and-paper system, although according to the press release, have been "fine tuned to meet the requirements of a modern RPG."
A release date has not been revealed at the moment.
