Cyberpunk 2077 keeps the timeline from Cyberpunk 2020 RPG tabletop game

Cyberpunk 2077 keeps the timeline from Cyberpunk 2020 RPG tabletop game

There have been many rumors going on for a while now that Cyberpunk 2077 would be in an alternate timeline. Even though most the fan communities have largely ignored these stories about the game; recent outlets have increasingly been picking up quotes out of context that Cyberpunk 2077 would be in a parallel universe to the main game. This has created a lot of confusion, so CD Projekt RED Mike Pondsmith took to the Cyberpunk 2077 official subreddit to confirm that both the tabletop RPG and the CDPR videogame will share the same universe.

“There’s still an incorrect interview floating around the interwebs that states that Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk 2020 are separate timelines. To clear this up, I am posting RIGHT HERE AND NOW that the timeline is unified….”

Unfortunately, there is no release date for the game yet, but we can expect more information soon. According to a tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, CD Projekt Red will be at E3 2019. So hopefully that means we will see more gameplay footage from Cyberpunk 2077.

For those of you asking, yes, we will be at E3 this year.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that has The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt RED moving from a gritty, high fantasy world to a science fiction world metropolis. Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG in a huge open world known as Night City – a metropolis divided into six districts, each offering a different environment to explore. Players create their character and embark on their journey to crawl up from the criminal underbelly. As you'd expect, the game lets you augment your body using various bits of tech – illegal or otherwise – and you can use drugs to enhance your combat capabilities, or a kind of digital brain-hack called 'Braindance'. We know weapons are wide-ranging and seriously creative, with smart guns and bullets as well as terrifying Mantis Blades for melee. There will be no loading screens in Cyberpunk 2077, and the story and side quests are plenty, plus your choices will impact the game. Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the quest director of Cyberpunk 2077, said that "There are many ways to complete missions based on how you’ve created your character, which tools you use, etc. And I think this is something that makes our game different from The Witcher. Because in The Witcher we had a basic loop in the gameplay, finding non-linearity in the missions section. This time the gameplay will also have a non-linear character. I think this is where the big difference lies in terms of the complexity of our missions." There will be some multiplayer component that will be introduced later, and CD Projekt's CEO has confirmed that there will also be online elements to the game. The studio also tweeted to quell fears over microtransactions in online components, stating that Cyberpunk 2077 will be "nothing less than" the Witcher 3, adding that players will "get what they pay for" with "no hidden catch."



Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
