In a recent Video Documentary dedicated to Cyberpunk 2077, the voice of Geralt of Rivia, Doug Cockle told us some background on the development of the new, long-awaited video game of CD Projekt RED .

We have thus discovered that the events of Cyberpunk 2077, besides being set 57 years after the original board game of Mike Pondsmith Cyberpunk 2020 – will take place in one parallel timeline to the latter. Cockle explained that this decision was made in order to give developers "the freedom to create a game that respects the original work, and at the same time suitable for the videogame medium" .

video documentary, the level designer Miles Tost stated that "the level of freedom of a role playing card and pen is something that has not yet been achieved" . The original material must be treated in a wise and intelligent way because, given its complexity, it can not be easily taken and transformed into a videogame. One of the components clearly inspired by the original work is undoubtedly the character editor a real novelty for CD Project RED that for his previous titles had chosen a single character made and finished, Geralt of Rivia.

Cyberpunk 2077, we recall, is in development for the platforms of the current generation but is still lacking a release date. We hope to learn more at E3 2019: Polish developers have confirmed that the title will be present at the fair Losangelina, where it will probably return to show itself in a playable format.
