The Witcher developer CD Projekt has officially announced that it will be creating an RPG based on the pencil and paper Cyberpunk franchise. Cyberpunk's creator, Mike Pondsmith, is on board and chose CD Projekt to create a video game version of his world due to that company's work on the Witcher universe.
The Cyberpunk RPG (final title unknown) will contain the same elements that are hallmarks of Witcher games, such as a mature narrative and a non-linear story. Unlike with Geralt, this game will allow players to create their own character and choose from a variety of classes. Of course, cybernetic implants will also be an important part of the character customization system.
The game will be developed by a newly-created team full of Witcher veterans. There is currently no information as to the platform(s) and projected release date for the game.
