Cyberpunk 2077 Aims to Refresh Its Namesake Genre

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt, the developer most known for the Witcher series, aims to refresh the cyberpunk genre with their new game Cyberpunk 2077. Considering their history with rearranging old genre tropes and ambitious storytelling, graphics, and gameplay, CD Projekt may just pull off this seemingly cybernetic feat.

In a recent interview with Games Industry, studio head Adam Badowski discusses some of their influences and their plans for the new IP. With the Witcher series as evidence, they are a developer with endless ambition and an interest in non-conformist storytelling. The usual genre conventions seem to bore them, which is a damn good thing for us.

“We have a lot of work ahead of us in that regard because the established plots for Cyberpunk – the wars between corporations, fighting against advanced AI, wars over energy sources, have already all been covered quite thoroughly,” Badowski said, “Those scenarios are very familiar. In our opinion, though, nobody has shown Cyberpunk in the way that many people imagined it, we would like to extract those feelings they were getting when watching Ghost in the Shell, Hardware or the motorcycle scenes in Akira.”

He goes on to discuss how independence is important to their projects and that there aren’t enough mature games for adults and how Cyberpunk 2077 will be a game for an older audience.

If those words are any indication, there is definitely some serious passion behind this project. Just the thought that they are trying to capture what everyone has wanted from the cyberpunk genre makes us anxious to hear more about Cyberpunk 2077.
