The developers of The Witcher II are making a game based on pen-and-paper-RPG Cyberpunk.
Please, please let it actually be called Cyberpunk!
CD Projekt Red said the game will be “richly detailed, non-linear, and with a complex and gripping story,” which sounds like something you’d hear from the guys responsible for The Witcher series.
Actual details on the game are slim, but we’re to expect “twists” in the design techniques the studio has employed in its previous games. Given the tonal shift and new universe, that makes sense. It’s likely Cyberpunk will involve a bunch more shooting than you were ever doing with magic in The Witcher.
This is not, however, the same team who worked on The Witcher and The Witcher 2, though several “veterans” of the franchise will be part of this new team.
