CD Projekt RED, the masterminds behind the video game adaption of The Witcher series, recently released a teaser trailer on their newest project Cyberpunk 2077.
Based on the pen and paper RPG of the same name, the trailer features a lone, heavily “modified” (is androidic a word yet?) woman surrounded by many corpses. Her arms reveal a system of eerily blooded bladed technology. Bullets impact her body, to no effect. I’ll let you watch the rest.
Hidden in the video are a few goodies many will be glad to hear. Reddit user xylempl transcribed a quick screen flash near the end of the video. The main point marking the Cyberpunk release as way off in 2015, or until it is done. This apparently translates to “when we’re convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome.” Which, having spent a good chunk of my last few years exploring their incarnation of The Witcher, leaves me with high hopes. They also seem to be looking for more talent.
