CD Projekt RED, creators of The Witcher franchise, and GOG.com, purveyors of video game history will unveil more details about the new “AAA” RPG they’ve been hiring for. From the supplied image, it’s clearly not going to be anything close to the classic fantasy/magic setting of their previous games. It’s a high-tech setting with a punkish flair.
The press release is vague:
Hey folks… lots of speculation about what CD Projekt RED and GOG.com will talk about tomorrow during their Summer Conference. One thing’s for sure… there will be an announcement about the new AAA RPG in development at the studio.
The Summer Conference announcement will be broadcast tomorrow in a livestream from their Facebook page at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 5pm GMT.
The game has been revealed as a take on Mike Pondsmith’s pen-and-paper RPG CyberPunk 2020. CD Projekt RED promises cutting edge graphics, a mature and deep storyline, and the ability to fully customize your character.
