Marcin Iwinski recently revealed more general details in regards to the upcoming next-generation video game, “Cyberpunk 2077.” According to a report from VG247 on Jan. 23, the CD Projekt Red co-founder reassured fans that the upcoming title is coming to be a “true RPG game” as opposed to the multiplayer shooter.
Marcin Iwinski added that his studio is known for the crafting stories and huge worlds. For “Cyberpunk 2077,” the development team will be using knowledge gained from working on the “Witcher” series, including the upcoming “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” Although the new intellectual property is a role-playing game, it will also introduce “new gameplay elements.” You can find his statement below (courtesy of IGN UK and VG247):
People have been asking me if Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiplayer or if it will be a straight-up shooter, and I tell them to relax, because it will be a true RPG game. We are known for storytelling, and big game worlds and so we’re taking all what we’ve learnt from previous three Witcher games, as well as the open-world aspect, and applying it to Cyberpunk 2077. So yes, it is an all-out RPG game, but we’re looking at having a lot of new gameplay elements that I cannot talk about yet. One thing I can say for sure is that it is definitely NOT a multiplayer shooter.
“Cyberpunk 2077” is expected to arrive in 2015 at the earliest for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The new intellectual property will be based on the “Cyber” brand of tabletop games. Although the development team confirmed that the video game should feature multiplayer elements, it apparently won’t be related to shooting.
CD Projekt Red is currently focused on completing the development of the aforesaid “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” The sequel should be shipping later this year in multiple regions for computers and the two next-generation systems. Marcin Iwinski and the rest of the development team should then turn their full attention to “Cyberpunk 2077.”
