I used to play the original table top RPG, Cyberpunk 2013 and then later Cyberpunk 2020 back in college and it was a lot of fun. 80's cyberpunk is great with evil corporate mercenaries, Yakuza, and crazed net junkies. I can still remember my character. She was a very mildly wired "rockergirl" character archetype based loosely off Priss from the Bubblegum Crisis OVAs. I named her Aki. I am very excited to see what they do with this franchise since it was one of my favorites as a teenager. I wound up playing more Shadowrun when that eventually came out, but I'm not sure how long it's going to take for the proposed Kickstarter revived Shadowrun project to show up. So, until then, here's hoping that Cyberpunk 2020 satisfies my yearning for some good cybernetic adventuring. I'd really love to recreate Aki again in game.

Now if some developer would just take a crack at the Twilight 2000 franchise, I'd be a happy-camper.

So there was a difference between Shadowrun Pen and paper and CyberPunk pen and paper? damn

Either way anything involving Cyberpunk in video games is a must purchase in my books. I love games like ShadowRun ( Snes/ Genesis) Dues EX series, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy and Snatcher on the Sega CD.

Just too few and a VERY niche market for those, but given how awesome The Witcher and The Witcher 2 were, I have high hopes for this game.

Cool stuff, i'd rather it be based on Paranoia though. Now THAT was a pen-and-paper rpg that needs a video game reboot.

Yep!! Paranoia was crazy!! I still wish someone would make a game based on Palladium's Rifts, though. That has to be my favorite pen & paper RPG. Glitterboys and Juicers?? Yes, please!

edit: The travesty that was on the N-Gage doesn't count!!

I've thought for a while that Rifts was the only IP that HAD to be an MMO. Maybe not as they are currently constructed, but yeah I'd think as an overall meta structure it makes the most sense. Especially for studios that make more than one MMO. Just have characters running around destroying genre conventions left and right.

Thats exactly what my friends and I have been saying for a few years. I don't play MMO's, but if they made a Rifts MMO, its probably all I would ever do. And, with the way the world books are set up, expansions have practically written themselves. I can almost imagine how awesome a 40 person raid on Atlantis with a Dragon Dreadnought, or high lvl Splugorth as the end boss would be! A nerd can dream, right?

I'm in only if there is sex and nudity.

its CDP. I'm sure you'll get plenty of cyber-boobs. Maybe collectible USB sticks with naked chicks on 'em.

They will be data chips. OR if they really want to tweak the nose of the future of the 80's found in Cyberpunk, CD-ROMs or faxes.

One was the dark future of the 80's. The other was the weird future of a fantasy setting. Both had their quirks and their strengths.

@Samael2138: And of course the licensed stuff. A setting like Rifts allows basically plug and play options for any genre and any licensed IP the studio can get. I'd actually really like it. Just looking at say City of Heroes and Star Trek just as an example of the existential crazy that could happen with such an MMO set up.

But, the question is if you'll have to buy the director's cut to get the "adult" content.

Also, antidisestablishmentarianism for the achievement... :)

This pleases me, I loved the Witcher 2, and Cyberpunk is my favorite setting, even though Deus Ex didn't do it for me, and Syndicate was short (and banned in AU)

When I was growing up I played a shitload of pen-and-paper RPGs so this sounds fucking rad! And I actually think this is an IP that people who aren't insane like me would also enjoy.

This also seems timely given the success of the Shadowrun kickstarter. It's pretty funny to think we're basically living in the time that Cyberpunk was set (2020 AD). I wonder how they handle that in the game. It seems reminiscent of Conan O'Brien's "In the Year 2000" gag continuing into the 21st century.

Pull it off, and CDProjekt just becomes a top-tier boutique developer.

I'm really going to be keeping an eye out for news on this game because it sounds like it could be amazing. I love CD Projekt, I love The Witcher and The Witcher 2 and I love the idea of them making a cyberpunk RPG.

Just an alternate timeline I guess. The changes started at least since 1990, and given Jobs is still alive in 2020 (him and Woz run a little shop in Night City's Mallplex) that would be my turning point. Maybe computers never quite became the everyday consumer product. Hence why you need corner computers instead of everyone carrying around their own. Without that financial interest, surfing the net remained an esoteric thing that you needed specialized training to really pull off (the Netrunners), and companies invested in other avenues of income (drugs, cybernetics, space travel, overthrowing governments).
