Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the games we are excited about at the moment. The release date is expected to be announced soon and there are plenty of reasons why we believe that this will be a good game. We will have to start with the fact that this is the first new IP of CD Project RED since The Witcher.
This will be a role playing game that takes place in an open world. The perspective will be a first-person one and the events will take place in the Night City. More than that, the game is procedurally generated, which is incredible. Almost everything will be handcrafted so we expect amazing details. The city is divided into six regions.
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to take 50 years in the future, after the original game. However, when it comes to the timeline, things are a bit confusing. For instance, Mike Pondsmith explained that the timeline will have some changes:
Let’s say that at this point, we plan to continue the timeline and you will see the things that you saw in 2020, but they will somewhat be changed. And that will affect both the timeline and also the fact that cellphones went from the size of the brick to the size your thump, and then again to the size of a brick. So you are going to see some shifts in technology.
On the other hand, CD Projekt RED explained that the game will in fact take place in a parallel timeline. Therefore, it is hard to say what’s the truth here and we will have to wait until more information is released.
Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t only set 50-years after the source material but it also takes place in a parallel timeline. This gave the team the freedom to create a game that respected and referenced the source material but also suited the shift to the video game medium.
