So just so no one else makes one before I do I am claiming this game. 

Teaser trailer


So what is Cyberpunk? Well stay a while and listen and I will tell you. Other than a sub genre of sci-fi fiction, Cyberpunk  is a pen and paper RPG creted by Mike Pondsmith. The universe is an 80s inspired near future where following a vast socio-economical collapse and a period of martial law, the United States government has had to rely on several megacorporations to survive. Information warfare and augmentation are also major ellements of the universe.

So the videogame is made by CDPrjekt RED, is a nonlinear "mature RPG for a mature audience" which promises to offer a smoother introduction into the story and universe of the game than the Witcher games. The game will also offer much more character customisation with multiple classes and various augmentations that you can make to your character. The game will take place in many locations arround the world but will focus on the fictional Night City, located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Also recent job listings suggest that there may be some kind of online multiplayer element to the game. And that is about all we know at this point all we really have is one peice of concept art.

Press release

"Warsaw, 18 October 2012 – CD Projekt RED has officially announced the title of its in-development role-playing game. "Cyberpunk 2077" will be set in the world created by Mike Pondsmith, one of the fathers of the cyberpunk genre and the creator of the cult-classic pen-and-paper RPG, Cyberpunk.

"The Team has to love the material. The Team has to want to be faithful to the material. The Team has to have the skills to execute the material and see that vision through to the end. They have to be on fire with the desire to make an extraordinary game.

And that leads, at last, to why we hooked up with CD Projekt RED" – Mike Pondsmith commented, why he has chosen to work with the Polish game developer.

The cyberpunk atmosphere, well known from William Gibson's novels, the "Blade Runner" movie and the famous pen-and-paper game, "Cyberpunk 2020", will surround the player. The creators promise that "Cyberpunk 2077" will be true to the essence of the cyberpunk genre. Players will be thrown into the dark future of the year 2077 and into a world where advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity. A multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players (a CD Projekt RED trademark) will take place in the sprawling metropolis of Night City and its surroundings. Players will have a chance to visit places well known from "Cyberpunk 2020", including a combat zone completely taken over by gangs, the legendary Afterlife joint and the nostalgic Forlorn Hope.

Freedom of action and diversity in gameplay will be delivered thanks to the sandbox nature of the game and mechanics inspired by the "Cyberpunk 2020" pen-and-paper system, fine tuned to meet the requirements of a modern RPG. Gameplay will pump adrenaline through players' veins and be consistent with the celebrated Cyberpunk spirit – rebellion, style, edge, uncertainty. And of course, a cyberpunk reality cannot be deprived of murderous steel – guns, rifles, implants, dozens of gadgets and other varied pieces of equipment needed to survive on the streets of Night City. The developers are focused on making the technology of 2077 credible and exciting.
