Cyberpunk 2077 prepares fans for a ‘blockbuster’ franchise
Fans of CD Projekt Red and its games are no doubt starving for any morsel of information about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. And while the studio has yet to truly reveal the game and its plans for it, CD Projekt Red did address it at a recent gaming seminar, giving listeners an outline of this “ambitious” title and confirming that it will be available through both GOG and Steam.
“Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning,” the studio said. “We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it’s very appealing to players, not only RPG players—but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It’s handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay.”
Even for how little we know about this game (including its alleged multiplayer capacity), Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly hot property these days. Dragon Age Game Director Mike Laidlaw said in an interview that he would join the development team in a heartbeat if given the chance: “Cyberpunk would certainly pull me in for the most part. Moving to Poland and moving my family, and that kind of stuff, would be exceptionally challenging but cyberpunk’s always had a draw.”
