Cyberpunk 2077 detailed

CD Projekt Red's new RPG renamed, will feature sandbox environment; GOG now available on Mac with pay-what-you-want pricing for Interplay games.

Today during a presentation in Warsaw, Poland, CD Projekt Red announced the full title for its new Cyberpunk role-playing game. The project is now officially known as Cyberpunk 2077.

Gamers may want to temper back their excitement for the project, as company cofounder Marcin Iwinski said the game is still in "early development." Fans can stay up to date with the development process through the game's blog, which launched today with insight from developers and Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith.

Cyberpunk 2077 puts players into a "dark future" in 2077 where advanced technologies have become "both the salvation and the curse of humanity." The game promises a nonlinear story designed for "mature" players and is set in the metropolis of Night City. It was also revealed today that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature sandbox elements, though this was not specified in any length.

Additionally, CD Projekt Red announced today that its digital distribution hub GOG.com is now available for Mac. The service launched today with 50 games, including The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, Faster Than Light, SimCity 2000, and others. All purchases include both the Mac and PC versions.

Additionally, in celebration of GOG's fourth anniversary, all Interplay titles will be available through a pay-what-you-want pricing option for the next two weeks. For more on that promotion and the games included, check out the official website.

Lastly, it was announced that the company's Red Kit modding toolset for The Witcher will be available for free sometime during the first half of 2013 and that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has sold over 2 million copies worldwide to date.

Fap, Fap, Fap.


It was challenging, what with the blood and metal claw extensions and all, but I managed to masturbate successfully to CyberPunk picture none-the-less.


Can't wait till more info emerges!

Open world would be interesting if it had an open economy,  people create stuff and sell, ala Eve Online style but with real-world money.  Would be interesting in a steampunk setting.

"but even the $8.5 million Ouya raised as part of its Kickstarter campaign pales in comparison to the revenue taken in by current home consoles" - I'm not sure what you're comparing there? The 8.5 million is the initial investment, not revenue.

You're comparing Ouya with consoles who had 4 generations on the market. How many did Ouya have? 0, it's not out there yet. However, the fact they pulled 8.5 million from the general public as an investment before they had a product should show the potential of the market. However, the real test will the be effective launch and the games available on launch.

Ok, let me call this one out: STOP WITH THE CONSOLES V/S PC TALKS... If you consider yourself a gamer, you would enjoy games NO MATTER the platform... PC has some great games, Consoles have also some great games, there are some that are multi that are good. but please, PLEASE stop with that "console is better than pc / no, pc kicks console ass" cause that's only showing how narrow minded you can be...

Cyberpunk 2020, was (is) the best cyberpunk rpg ever. (And not a "generic name")

I'm going to wish that it's going to be a good (nay awesome) game, but I've had my heart broken so many times.

Okay, all I want to say here is this better DO JUSTICE to this very promising genre...I am so very tired of nerfs and lack of ambition when there so very much potential. Of course, you all might keep your developing minds out of the 'grit' and filth so you might actually see the light in this way...

Hopefully they change the title to something less generic. Looks very promising, though.

I remember a few months ago I said that if CDPR wanted to prove themselves a competent and brilliant company, they would have to find success in more than one franchise. Naturally, I'm positively ecstatic that they are branching out and investing in another IP. I can't wait to see how they bring role-playing to a cyberpunk setting!

Yeah I'm excited about this one.  It will be awhile before we see a release date, but I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

CD Projekt Red will always have my support. Love playing  their games. Have no problems paying full price on release day. Hope they keep it up.

@erix43 Maybe not entirely, this was one of those vague game trailers that left people foaming at the mouth for any details ASAP.  Not surprised Gamespot thinks it is newsworthy.  Either way GOG is a well enough liked and unique service that I'd be a little more tolerant towards cheap plugs compared to some companies that do the same thing.

Now I sound like a fanboy so here's something negative, they pissed customers off once taking down GOG website without notice then later admit it was a marketing ploy for launching their new site.  Then apologized, yet here they are again....

@pidow Your comment's the polar opposite of one of the 1st remarks I read here regarding Cyberpunk 2077, which was, "Shut up and take my money!"

@Cristhian_Cobas I don't know why people enjoy hate so much either. Now that I'm thinking about it, it reminds me of the teenage years when some (loser) kids make other kids feel like losers to make themselves feel better.

@theend3r Well... Cyberpunk 2077 tabletop RPG was born before DeusEx... but oh well, if we're going to pick fights over that... xD

If you're gonna call people illiterate, you might want to check your spelling. Why so angry? What's your deal? Do you have a lot of money invested in this subject? Or the project? Or are you just an angry fat person?

@pidow Fire_Wa11, I "NEVER" stated "Shut and take my money, I have never use that term period.  It has to be the ASSHOLE who goes around deleting my comments and adding the ASSHOLE's own, not me.  I need more, interested, but need more stands!.

@mrboone01  I don't care about the history behind it.
The name was less generic in the 80s but now a lot of games have cyberpunk settings.
They could choose a more interesting title while still working with the Cyberpunk 2020 world and its writer.
Also I wrote this several months ago and your easily offended mind should find more recent comments to reply to.

@pidow I'm  not saying you said that.  I'm saying someone else who has been following this game on gamespot said that.  I understand both of your points.  No need to get defensive.  The whole time I was playing Witcher 2 I was clamoring for CDPR's take on the sci-fi genre as I like the content of the Witcher games but prefer sci-fi to fantasy.  So, like that other person, I can understand why they would say, "Shut up and take my money."  I can also see why others -- you  for instance -- would want more information.  Day-one buy for me is usually a four letter word.  Except with this one.  Sheesh.  So defensive.
