Co-founder Marcin Iwinski addresses concerns.
With the impending release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, more eyes are being drawn to CD Projekt RED’s other next generation opus, Cyberpunk 2077. There isn’t much information to go off of except that it will be based on the popular tabletop RPG universe of the same name.
Of course, the teaser trailer that did the rounds last year made many think that Cyberpunk 2077 would be a shooter of sorts. Speaking to IGN, CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski put those worries to rest. “People have been asking me if Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiplayer or if it will be a straight-up shooter, and I tell them to relax, because it will be a true RPG game.
“We are known for storytelling, and big game worlds and so we’re taking all what we’ve learnt from previous three Witcher games, as well as the open-world aspect, and applying it to Cyberpunk 2077. So yes, it is an all-out RPG game, but we’re looking at having a lot of new gameplay elements that I cannot talk about yet. One thing I can say for sure is that it is definitely NOT a multiplayer shooter.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently slated to release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in either 2015 or 2016.
