Cyberpunk Q&A With Marcin Momot

Posted on August 1, 2012 AT 12:28pm

CD Projekt Red have released some more information regarding their highly anticipated new role playing game, Cyberpunk. Community Manager Marcin Momot has answered a few questions from fans that highlight some of the inspiration driving the game’s development.  Momot said that other than obvious influences such as Blade Runner, CD Projekt Red were also focusing on ‘the first Ghost in the shell, both anime and manga’. He went on to say that ‘The first part of Deus Ex is also a very important source of inspiration to us.’

When asked a question about the role playing mechanics, Momot said that ‘We want to keep the role system from the pen & paper version of Cyberpunk. As opposed to the regular fantasy set-up with mages, warriors and archers, we’re going for something different.’ He added that there would more ‘freedom with customization’ for your character compared to when playing as Geralt in The Witcher games.

Unfortunately we weren’t treated to any new screenshots or other media related to the game, Momot proclaimed that he has been asking the art team to give him something to release but ‘they won’t listen to me for some reason’. He assured the CD Projekt Red community that as soon as he convinces them to share some new content, they’ll be ‘the first ones to know.’

Hopefully it won’t be too long before some new content is released for the game. The Witcher 2 was a monumental achievement and solidified CD Projekt Red’s place at the top of the role playing genre. It’s going to be interesting to see how they transfer the skills used to create the amazing fantasy world of The Witcher, into a futuristic punk setting.
