CD Projekt RED — the studio behind The Witcher series — has released a stunning teaser trailer for its upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. The developer is basing the RPG off the popular Cyberpunk pen-and-paper series, with the game depicting a future society capable of equipping body augmentations. The video does a great job of setting the tone and giving gamers an idea of what to expect: it’s futuristic, dark, and violent.
The developers have also pledged to stay true to the original series. In an interview with Polygon, CD Projekt RED runs through the challenges of adapting the title as a video game. The story will be brand new, but the studio will be using the same setting, choosing to adapt it to an extended time frame that should give Night City a much richer history. It’s also a chance for CD Projekt RED to do what it does best: present contemporary issues through the medium of video games.
