Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed and published by CD Projekt. It is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on 19 November 2020. Adapted from the Cyberpunk franchise, the story takes place in dystopian Night City, an open world with six distinct regions. Players assume the first-person perspective of a customizable mercenary known as V, who can acquire skills in hacking and machinery, an arsenal of ranged weapons, and options for melee combat.
Cyberpunk 2077 is being developed using the REDengine 4 by a team of around 500, exceeding the number that worked on the studio’s previous game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015). To assist with production, CD Projekt launched a new division in Wrocław, Poland, and partnered with Digital Scapes, Nvidia, and QLOC. Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith was a consultant, and actor Keanu Reeves has a starring role. The soundtrack features music by Marcin Przybyłowicz and several licensed artists. Adaptations include a comic book series, card game, and an anime.
CD Projekt ?
CD Projekt is a Polish video game developer, publisher and distributor based in Warsaw, founded in May 1994 by Marcin Iwiński and Michał Kiciński. Iwiński and Kiciński were video game retailers before they founded the company, which initially acted as a distributor of foreign video games for the domestic market. The department responsible for developing original games, CD Projekt Red, best known for The Witcher series, was formed in 2002. In 2008, CD Projekt launched the digital distribution service GOG.com (originally as Good Old Games).
The company began by translating major Western video-game releases into Polish, collaborating with Interplay Entertainment for two Baldur’s Gate games. CD Projekt was working on the PC version of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance when Interplay experienced financial difficulties. The game was cancelled and the company decided to reuse the code for their own video game. It became The Witcher, a video game based on the works of Andrzej Sapkowski.

CYBERPUNK 2077 RELEASE DATE
The official Cyberpunk 2077 release date is November 19, 2020. That means there’s not long left to wait until we’re able to explore the seedy underbelly of Night City.
We’ve already passed the original release date of April 16, and CD Projekt Red has pushed down the delayed release date back even further this time. Now we’re in the leadup, according to a new report, CD Projekt Red has introduced mandatory overtime for Cyberpunk 2077.
CYBERPUNK 2077 CHARACTERS
There are five Cyberpunk 2077 characters who featured prominently in the E3 2018 demo. Firstly, there’s Jackie Welles, a mercenary who takes on bounties and operates on the fringes of the big league. Dexter DeShawn is the next face we run into – Dexter is a Fixer, someone who handles odd jobs ranging from kidnappings to assassinations provided the price is right. Fixers effectively liaise between mercenaries and clients, organizing dirty work. Night City is full of Fixers, and Dexter DeShawn is among the most sought after.
Royce is the boss of Maelstrom, a Watson-based gang who specialize in raiding mega corporations to steal tech. He’s cold, calculating, and untrustworthy. In the demo we also meet ripped Doctor Victor, as skilled with a scalpel as he is with a screwdriver. Victor can heal you, repair broken cyberwar, and install new implants and tech fresh from the black market. Finally, there’s Meredith Stout, an agent for the Militech corporation – she’s an egomaniac and despises anyone from the lower classes.
Keanu Reeves will grace our monitors as Johnny Silverhand, a beloved character from the original tabletop game, but he won’t be joined by the Fame Monster Lady Gaga despite rumors to the contrary that she would appear as an NPC. Speaking to Wccftech, UI coordinator Alvin Liu says that, while she is “pretty cyberpunk”, that she will not be apart of Cyberpunk 2077. We guess she wouldn’t pick up her telephone.
CYBERPUNK 2077 MULTIPLAYER
CD Projekt Red said back in 2013 that Cyberpunk 2077 would have “multiplayer features” but we know from E3 2018 that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer will not be available at launch. CD Projekt’s upcoming RPG will launch single-player only, but multiplayer is currently in R&D, according to quest designer Patrick Mills in an interview with Eurogamer.
The Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer is being worked on by a Canadian studio called Digital Scapes. The studio is made up of developers from BioWare, Relic, and Radical, and has also worked with Dying Light developers Techland. Considering Digital Scapes helped with the PvP invasion mechanic present in Dying Light, there’s the slimmest chance that Cyberpunk 2077 will boast a proper multiplayer system.
