Big Announcements for CD Projekt RED

By

CD Projekt RED, the developers of The Witcher series, made some big announcements at their summer conference today.  The biggest would be their new upcoming role playing game.  Instead of being set in a fantasy world like The Witcher, this new title will be modeled after Cyberpunk, a pen and paper RPG system developed by Mike Pondsmith.  This RPG will be designed for more mature players much like The Witcher.  Instead of playing a scripted protagonist, this cyperpunk game will have players make their own unique character from a variety of classes.  CD Projekt RED boasts the classes extremely varied, ranging from a hardened mercenary to a clever hacker.  All classes will be able to equip a wide variety of cybernetic implants and deadly weapons.

Mike Pondsmith, designer of the Cyberpunk system, said, “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.  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.”

Other news from the conference included details about The Witcher 2 and GOG.com.  Between PC and Xbox360 sales, The Witcher 2 sold 1.7 million copies.  Furthermore, it will be available on the 360 in Japan on August 23rd of this year and will be ported to Mac sometime this fall. News from GOG.com, CD Projekt RED’s sister company, was also available.  The release of Tomb Raider 1+2+3  and Sid Meier’s Colonization was announced as well as numerous indie game preorders.
