The developers at CD Projekt working on the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 have talked about the experience of working with the creator of the pen-and-paper system on which the video game is based and have offered information on the official forums of the game.
Adam Badowski, the leader of the RED studio inside CD Projekt, states, “Working with Mike Pondsmith is a great experience for the studio. Many of the people behind Cyberpunk 2077 have played his game and having his support is very important for us. It’s good to know what inspired him and what influenced his vision of the world.”
The creator of the pen-and-paper system also stars in a video, talking about the game world he has created and its unique characteristics.
The team has not yet said exactly how much of the original game mechanics they will keep and what other systems they plan to create from scratch.
The developers believe that their own ability to create complex stories in video games and develop new technology to support player choice will mix well with Cyberpunk and lead to a good experience for players.
CD Projekt has also launched Afterlife, the official forums for Cyberpunk 2077, allowing fans to come together, talk about the game and then speculate about other mechanics and character reveals.
All the opinions expressed and all comments delivered via other sites will be taken into account during the development process in order to make sure that Cyberpunk 2077 appeals to both old school pen-and-paper fans and to modern gamers.
CD Projekt says that Cyberpunk 2077 will be launched when it’s ready and has not mentioned any platforms, which means that it could be linked to next-gen consoles.
In early February, the same studio is expected to announce a new video game in the Witcher series.
