With Cyberpunk 2077, The World Is All About Freedom

At Gamescom 2018, Richard Borzymowski from CD Projekt Red chats with us about Cyberpunk 2077, the massive scale of Night City, and what freedom should mean to the player.

Few games can generate as much buzz as Cyberpunk 2077 has without showing gameplay. Until now, the only thing developer CD Projekt Red has publicly shown of its upcoming open-world RPG is a short cinematic trailer and a few screenshots, and yet, it has become one of the most anticipated PS4, Xbox One, and PC games. In large part, this is based off word from those that have seen the game being played behind closed doors, but also the incredible experience the studio delivered with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

CD Projekt Red is quickly become one of the most prestigious video game developers in the business, so expectations for Cyberpunk 2077 are high. It's no surprise, then, that it's keeping its cards close to its chest. At Gamescom 2018 it showed off the same demo that was at E3 2017 a few months earlier--and it was still impressive to see the second time. Subsequently, the developer at long last released this footage to the public; you can now watch almost an hour of Cyberpunk gameplay.

During Gamescom, GameSpot was able to sit down with Cyberpunk 2077 producer Richard Borzymowski to discuss the game, and while he avoided delving too deep into the nitty-gritty of gameplay, he did speak to the kind of freedom that players will get to experience while in Night City, and what it will mean to them.

Prior to the gameplay demo's release, CD Projekt Red shared four new Cyberpunk 2077 screenshots, which were captured from the demo (as well as some new concept art). During this chunk of the game, main character V is hired by Dexter DeShawn, a big player in the dog-eat-dog society of Night City, to broker a deal with a gang and acquire an incredibly powerful piece of technology. At the same time, a representative from a Corp also wants in on the action and tires to use V to achieve objective.

As of yet, Cyberpunk 2077 does not have a release date, but it will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. CD Projekt Red first confirmed it was working on a title based on Mike Pondsmith's acclaimed pen and paper game RPG game in 2012.
