Cyberpunk 2077 new name for CD Projekt Red's next RPG

In May, CD Projekt Red, the team behind the two best selling Witcher RPG games, announced that its next game project will be based on the long running Cyberpunk 2020 pen-and-paper RPG. This week, the team revealed that the actual title of the game will be Cyberpunk 2077.

In a post on the game's newly launched blog, the team talks about adapting a pen-and-paper game into a video game. It states:

For example, the Cyberpunk 2020 “Wardrobe & Style” skill governs the knowledge about the right clothes to wear, when to wear them and how to look cool even in a spacesuit. As you can see, this skill covers quite a big area of lore and can be interpreted differently, depending on the situation and the players. In Cyberpunk 2077 this skill has to be tied to a specific gameplay mechanic. And all of these  mechanics have to be clearly defined so they can work well with other elements of the game and, at the same time, be easy to understand for the player.

The game is still in the early stages of development. No release date or platforms for Cyberpunk 2077 have been announced.

A well done mix between The Witcher and Deus Ex could indeed work very well, only thing I hope they don't forget about adding First Person view.

And boobs. Don't forget boobs.

Not a very creative title indeed, not marketing-friendly, too. Nevertheless, I'm sure the game will be a killer hit. I was very impressed with Twitcher 2 (and who wasn't anyway), so I'm confident that they'll deliver.

Lame. Sounds like a nickname Anonymous or LulzSec would use on IRC, not a videogame. Come on, you can do better than that.
