CD Projekt announces Cyberpunk

Witcher developer licenses classic pen & paper RPG series.

The Witcher developer CD Projekt has lifted the lid on its new AAA RPG - it's a videogame version of Mike Pondsmith's classic '80s pen and paper RPG series Cyberpunk.

Details are slim, but the Polish developer promises "a mature RPG for a mature audience". It'll have a non-linear story, "advanced RPG mechanics", different character classes and a "gigantic arsenal".

Pondsmith will be collaborating with CD Projekt on the title.

"For over two decades, I've been proud to say that Cyberpunk's been the gold standard of what it means to be a true cyberpunk game. And it's been a huge success for me and our many fans, with over 5 million players worldwide," commented the US author and game creator.

"But over all that time we haven't found the right team to bring our cyberpunk world to full digital life - until now. CD Projekt Red is the team we've been hoping for. Their incredible work on The Witcher and The Witcher 2 shows that they share the same dedication and love of great games that we do at Talsorian.

"I'm especially stoked that they want our participation in making this game a fantastic project that will live up to everything Cyberpunk fans (old and new) have been waiting for. Trust me - this game is going to rock."

There's no word on what platforms it will land on or when it might launch.
