, has told VG247 that, “The choice of the game universe was easy. We still wanted to create games designed for the grown-up gamer, and Cyberpunk is the perfect setting which allows us to touch other important themes than those in The Witcher, because of its fantasy setting.”
He added, “What you can expect from Cyberpunk is that it will be as mature as The Witcher and set in a realistic and brutal world.”
Konrad Tomaszkiewicz also talked about how CD Projekt RED is working with the creator of the Cyberpunk pen and paper game, Mike Pondsmith, to make sure that they do not stray from his vision.
