I was already very interested in this game but now it just moved way up the must have list.
I'm a sucker for player controlled vehicles in games and in a RPG like this, just wow, Although this will likely be a 2019 game and I guess that's okay, I'll take the Scorpio version please. :D
Cyberpunk 2077 May Feature Driving/Flying Vehicles
There could also be vehicle combat, according to newly spotted job ads.
Cyberpunk 2077, the next major RPG from The Witcher studio CD Projekt Red, may feature vehicles, if newly discovered job ads are any indication.
The Polish studio is looking for a vehicle gameplay programmer to "create the whole architecture of vehicle-related code and the physics of driving / flying in those vehicles."
This isn't the only vehicle-related job ad for Cyberpunk 2077, as CD Projekt Red is also hiring a vehicle gameplay designer to "create compelling vehicle-based gameplay." This includes but is not limited to vehicle handling and controls, vehicle combat, and "relevant vehicle-based AI systems."
Another requisition also mentions vehicles; a successful candidate for a concept artist position will create technical concepts for vehicles, machines, and weapons, according to the post.
CD Projekt Red appears to be on a hiring spree for Cyberpunk 2077, as it has more than 60 open positions for the game posted on its careers website. Jobs are located at the studio's main HQ in Warsaw as well as Krakow. The vehicle-related posts were discovered by All Games Delta and CGMagOnline (via GameZone).
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch sometime in the 2017-2021 window. Don't expect to see more of it until CD Projekt Red can prepare an impressive showcase for it.
"Right now it's the end of talking about Cyberpunk until we can go out there and show stuff and say, 'Hey, here it is,' because that's how we do games," CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski said. "There is too much talking about what it possibly could be, and how big, and...
"When we show it, we should show it and explain it. So I'm going to have people not read anything about Cyberpunk probably for the next... time, whatever the time will be."
The game is set in a dystopian future and is being made in partnership with Cyberpunk RPG designer Mike Pondsmith. Platforms have not been announced, but PS4, Xbox One, and PC seem likely.
