CD-Projekt, known for their games The Witcher and The Witcher 2, recently talked about their upcoming game: Cyberpunk 2077. This was done via a press conference on October 19th.
They revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will be a sandbox-game, as opposed to an action-RP game which The Witcher 2 was. The game takes place in a big city, which is given the (temporal) name Night City by CD Projekt..
The futuristic city is based on the current world, but with technology 50 years ahead. CD Projekt promised a big arsenal of upgrades, weapons, implants and high-tech gadgets. If you want to know all about the project you can also visit the recently launched weblog. Fans can search for hints and new information about the game on the weblog.
As a huge Witcher fan, I'm left with mixed feelings. I'm disappointed that they changed the amazing genre which the Witcher 2 had, and also the setting is changed. On the other side, it can be something new and fresh, and perhaps Rockstar will finally gain a serious competitor in the sandbox-genre.
