Nice, stylish trailer, though. Although the whole "it'll be out when it's ready" thing makes CD Projekt feel like they are pushing a bit too hard to come across as... well, Valve.

Well it is based on something that was already called Cyberpunk, although I agree that they should have come up with a better name.

I didn't know that bit. What is this extremely generic-named property then? An RPG? Does that mean that there is a chance this isn't an action game? I crave more sci-fi hardcore RPGs. I crave even more modern-day RPGs, but that's probably a lost fight already, so I'll take what I can get.

I love this. Also, secret message: Probably Witcher 3 on February 5th

If you can't read it:

All that's not all we are about to reveal our other project which is much closer to being completed and yes it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story you can probably guess the game we're talking about on the 5th of february it will be all clear

They're going to buy the Saints Row franchise from THQ and release Saints Row 4?

Open world RPG. Weren't you paying attention? It's all right there in the trailer:

CD Projekt RED - my money is yours

I'll play anything made by them.

Will this be kind of like Blade Runner: the video game?

I believe they got the creator of the original Cyberpunkt P&P games on board, plus the official license (Or something like that?). So why not go with a well known and established franchise name? That way people at least know what to expect to a certain degree.

And actually it had been 3D Realms with Duke Nukem Forever that keyed the "when it's done" phrase first afaik. Sure Valve time is a similar concept but one could argue that even Blizzard has used that exact same sentiment before too.

I also don't think CD Projekt is pushing it hard, imho they are among the few developers out there that stay true to their roots and still respect their customer base even after making it big time. That's not something one should take for granted (Bioware, Blizzard *cough cough*) So if anybody has the right to drop a line like that and still stay believable, it's CD Projekt.

Getting a Ghost in the Shell vibe from this, which is not a bad thing at all.

Indeed! To me it looked like a pretty cool mash up between Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, my nerd mind can't think of any cooler combination than that, well maybe if they throw in some Xenomorphs from Aliens ;)

There's actually no chance it isn't an RPG, since it's already announced that it's an RPG, by a studio that only makes RPGS..

Also it's about damn time a game about personal responsibility is made! Them kids need to learn.

well that song was more than a little distracting. i like my cyberpunk in the key of vangelis.

but consider me intrigued!

Posted by NinetySevenA

This is good. Can't wait to see a gameplay trailer.

Posted by triviaman09

Announcement teasers are such a waste of everyone's time. Especially when what the game actually is isn't even readily apparent. Either give me a gameplay trailer or just put a text announcement with a screenshot or two out there. I couldn't care less about your bloody boob dress lady and bullet fetish.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

For some reason, as soon as that bullet ricocheted off that ladies face the chorus to Womanizer started playing in my head with the words "TERMINATOR TERMI-TERMINATOR YOU'RE A TERMNIATOR OH etc..."

Posted by Teoball

Looking forward to this. Love me some Sci-fi.

I tried playing The Witcher 2 a couple of times but the setting and characters didn't click with me at all. This looks promising though.

So is this the prequel to Cleopatra 2525?

That and a prequel to Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.

Posted by Scroll

Since its a ways off from being done I hope I can't buy it on a next gen platform since my pc isn't even up to the task of playing their last game.

Posted by Hunter5024

This is one of the best trailers I've seen in a long time.

Well, they're two for two, but I don't know that I'd extrapolate to that extent based on that, really. Especially if they have a Witcher 3 coming...

...and it's not like The Witcher 2 is a particularly old-school RPG, what with the real time, actiony, 360 controller-driven combat and all.

Sure, but at that point why even raise the point in the teaser? And they're quite cheeky about it, too, with the meaningful pause before the text and all that. Not that they're not entitled to release the game when they damn well please, but that touch at the end of the trailer felt a bit off to me. Definitely not even close to a dealbreaker, though.

As for the franchise name... meh. I hadn't heard of The Witcher and I hadn't heard of this, and I'm pretty darn nerdy. The difference being that "The Witcher" is actually a pretty cool title that doesn't lead to any misconceptions and sounds nice and marketable. Cyberpunk... not so much. I feel like having a proper title with the Cyberpunk thing attached as a subtitle ("Cyborg Bulletproof Seminaked Ladies: A Cyberpunk Adventure"!) would have been a better choice, along the lines of the Dawn of War series, for instance. Again, not a dealbreaker, but it's not like we have anything else to discuss from this, so...

Well I think teasers for sequels have some merit since you can speculate about story and gameplay based on past games and from teaser footage. But yeah, a teaser for a new game that we barely know anything about is kinda useless.

Guys, mute the sound of the trailer and play this at the same time on a new tab in the background.

Okay, so Deus Blade Runner in the Shell, next generation, by the Witcher 2 crew. . . . . . I should be done convulsing in glee some time next year.

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

In my personal fantasy world this game will be the moment CD Projekt RED goes really crazy and takes that "choices & consequences" concept to a whole new level. No way to tell either way just with this little teaser of course. Style looks potentially interesting though.

@Abendlaender: Love how that's how they decided to advertise job vacancies.

Looked fantastic concept-wise, but not sold again on CDPR's choice of over-sexualising all women...

They did get the creator on board and the license, but I think that the creator is more of a consonantal then one of the guys that is creating the story. Kinda like what George. A.A. Martin does for game of thrones. Either way I did not get the same vibe as you guys did with the ghost in the shell. Maybe more of a Judge Dredd feel mixed with bladerunner.

Ghost in the Shell is more or less, how should I put it without pissing someone off mmh. Its more grand in scale then Bladerunner is because of the whole manga-thing going on with it. So you get the films and the anime series mixed into it that made it popular with us nerds, and then some of us read the Manga and got kinda mindf**'ed. even if the whole series was a mindF**k to begin with.

So mix in philosophy and mindhacking then yeah, this will be a bladerunner/Ghost in the Shell thing going on. Which would be pretty awesome.

Where's my Prey 2?

@Abendlaender: Awesome catch man!

I am now twice as happy, and the timing is perfect since I finished Neuromancer yesterday. Two more books to read before the game ships, plenty of time.

Posted by Nethlem

@NoelVeiga: Well people have been looking forward for a more specific release date on this since the very first announcement a while back. So i guess the suspenseful pause had been solely there to tease those people expecting to see a more solid release date.

The reason why they announce/tease it so early is probably for a recruitment drive to get more people on board, as evident by the message on www.cyberpunk.net. Tbh i don't care about games getting announced that early, as long as they go silent for a while after, so the game moves out of the spotlight again. The way worse thing to do is announce a game 2 years before release and spending 2 years teasing people with tons of footage from the game every week, to a point where you probably don't even need to bother it anymore because all the fun stuff is spoiled.

I neither heard of The Witcher or "Cyberpunk the game" before, i also consider myself pretty nerdy but i'm not into P&P games, so that explains the lack of popularity among the "regular nerds". But it seems like the Cyberpunk P&P games had been all the rage at some point, as evident by it's wikipedia article . They probably paid something for that license, so not using it would be a waste of popularity and money. And to people familiar with the original Cyberpunk P&P games this does not leave a lot of room for misconceptions, it's the video game version of an P&P game, just like Dungeons&Dragons or like Might&Magic the video game version of an Card game. Notice how they even stay true to the naming of the original Cyberpunk P&P games by just adding a different year as subtitle. At least they are staying true to the roots of the original source material, unlike some other cyberpunkish re imaginings in recent history (Syndicate).
