Witcher 2 dev announces new RPG "Cyberpunk"

At CD Projekt Red's Summer Conference, they announced that they are currently working on a brand new non-Witcher-related AAA RPG called Cyberpunk.

Though scant few details were discussed, we know that Cyberpunk will be based on the tabletop RPG of the same name. As you may have guessed, players will roll characters from a variety of different archetypes like mercenary or hacker and presumably fight "the man."

We do know that you'll be able to equip your character with all sorts of cybernetic implants and doodads of the sort while you're adventuring through a non-linear story.

The game is being developed by a new expansion of the CD Projekt Red team, but will be headed up by veteran members of the Witcher sqaud. Here's to hoping CPR will be coming to E3 next week with a closer look at the game.

    this sounds awesome. hopefully character creation will be robust enough to not look like a complete douche.

    CD Project RED is one of the most consumer friendly company out there. I hope this turns out to be a great game.

    I would prefer they just convert the first witcher for 360!

    I wonder if it will be in the FIrst Person or 3rd Person perspective.

    Sold! Whenever this comes out I'll be buying it day 1. I have complete faith in CD Projekt RED. Along with Shadowrun Returns looks like I'll be getting my cyberpunk on quite a bit in the near future. This is music to my ears since I love the genre.
