CD Projekt's 'Cyberpunk' Game Official

So, instead of stepping into the spotlight once again, by announcing The Witcher 3, which I'm sure a lot of fans expected, Poland-based development studio CD Projekt RED officially confirmed that they are working on a brand new project called, Cyberpunk, which was described as a computer role-playing game based on the Cyberpunk pen-and-paper system.

Marcin Iwinski, CD Projekt co-founder, said that gamers can to witness "all of the hallmarks of the Witcher series that has made the developer so well-known and loved, and even more. Their upcoming RPG will be designed for mature and demanding players who expect to be treated seriously, and the game will be richly detailed, non-linear, and with a complex and gripping story. This much is expected from the talented studio, but the new universe brings with it some new twists in their game design. Players will experience the world through their own, unique characters chosen from different classes ' be they blood-thirsty mercenaries or cunning hackers ' that they will equip with vast selection of cybernetic implants and deadly weapons. As in the Witcher series, players will face morally ambiguous choices, their actions influencing events in the world at large and the fate of the individuals they encounter."

Here's a bit more info:

Original "Cyberpunk" game designer Mike Pondsmith was at hand for the conference in Warsaw, Poland. "For over two decades, I've been proud to say that Cyberpunk's been the gold standard of what it means to be a true cyberpunk game. And it's been a huge success for me and our many fans, with over 5 million players worldwide. But over all that time we haven't found the right team to bring our cyberpunk world to full digital life -- until now. CD Projekt Red is the team we've been hoping for. Their incredible work on The Witcher and The Witcher 2 shows that they share the same dedication and love of great games that we do at Talsorian. I'm especially stoked that they want our participation in making this game a fantastic project that will live up to everything Cyberpunk fans (old and new) have been waiting for. Trust me -- this game is going to rock," said "Maxmike" Pondsmith.

This game will be developed by a new team at CD Projekt RED Studio, composed of veterans from the Witcher franchise. The studio will set new standard in the futuristic RPG genre with an exceptional gaming experience. The most important goal for this division is to create a game matching their vision, a game that corresponds to their high production values.

Cyberpunk does sound sweet I must admit. Hope this one turns out okay, although we still have to wait until they uncover more details, as well as some concrete media. So, that's all for the time being. However, two very fine samples of concept art were released along with this announcement.

Sounds interesting to me. Besides, CD Projekt needs a break from the witcher!

Should be cool. I played Cyberpunk pretty regularly back in the day; it was good up until CP 2020; but the latest edition kind of crapped things out.
On the other hand, it was possible for your character to die in character creation as part of Lifepath/Background, so... there's that too.

CD Projekt Red has the biggest balls in the industry. They are becoming the estern Valve. No DRM, free DLC, and now they lay to rest The Witcher franchise to bring to life something completly new... on PC. In my opinion they wait for technology to upgrade to make Witcher bigger and better. Until then, they are doing this Blade Runner/Neuromancer, as I imagine it will be, new title. And now we can overpass the sadness after Prey 2 cancellation.

Bioware used to be my favorite, but now I like CD Projekt much better.
  LostPcGamer: I agree as the saying goes giants always fall.
