The Witcher Creators Are Creating The Official Cyberpunk Role-Playing Game

At today's special Summer Conference event, The Witcher developer CD Projekt revealed that their next big role-playing game is an official game based on the Cyberpunk pen-and-paper role-playing system.

It's being built by a second CDP Red team made up of Witcher veterans and will focus on letting players create their own characters to navigate through a futuristic world's decadent society with ultra-modern tech and morally ambiguous choice. A full line-up of classes aren't being revealed yet by the dev studio, but here's how it's describing the upcoming title:

Players will experience the world through their own, unique characters chosen from different classes — be they blood-thirsty mercenaries or cunning hackers — that they will equip with vast selection of cybernetic implants and deadly weapons. As in the Witcher series, players will face morally ambiguous choices, their actions influencing events in the world at large and the fate of the individuals they encounter.

We'll have more on Cyberpunk as news becomes available.


    Best. News. Ever.

    I just jizzed my pants.

    Seriously, we need more cyberpunk games (doesn't help Syndicate was banned).

    I wonder if it will be initially PC exclusive like the Witcher 2, or if they'll go for a simultaneous release on the consoles. Either way I'm sure it'll still be pirated to oblivion. Poor CDPR, you guys actually DESERVE all the money! :(

    Sounds epic. Also CD Projekt is making it, so I have to buy by default. All these RPG's to catch up on D:

    I think I just went to my happy place.
    Which is a bit concerning since I'm at work and I'm sure that didn't look good.

    I just felt my Mass Effect hole fill up...

    (That's not a sexual thing)

    Sorry for the language but it has to be said "The shit and pissed filled slightly more advanced streets"

    The only better news than this would be that they were making a warhammer 40k game - but DAYUM this is still some GREAT news!


    I can't wait to get back to Night City! Home-sweet-frackin'-home...

      Have to add that i'm really hoping we'll see mirrorshades or something similar in the collector's ed. at launch.

    This is freakn great news. These guys are simply awesome.

    Just shutup and take my money!!???!??!

    Sounds cool but it there any word on how combat's going to work? One of the things I didn't really like about The Witcher games was the combat. Also, I'm not a fan of turn based combat either (unless it's Pokemon) and that's the first thing that springs to mind when I hear a game is based on a pen and paper anything.

    Oh. My. God. I can't think of a better fit than this property and this studio. It seems so obvious.

    OMG YES! Anything by these guys is amazing

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

    I shall watch this one so closely that my eyeballs will actually be touching it.

    Very cool, can't come soon enough though. Sure, take the time to make it awesome, but still I hope its a next year title.

    First folks making a new Shadowrun game and now Cyberpunk sweet....
    Hope they mean Cyberpunk 2020 though (Cyberpunk v3, had some nice Ideas... but turned out to be overflowing with suck)

    Spider Jerusalem: The Game


    Wow, I am overjoyed! I really miss my Friday Night Firefight!
