Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated RPG game of the year and It’s production has gone through many rough hurdles. Now it looks like the worst has passed.In a recent interview with GameReactor Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the tabletop roleplaying game in 1988 and a consultant on the game, provided us with some new details about the game. His tabletop features unconventional classes like journalist, rockstar, executive, and others. The interviewer asked whether those will actually be in Cyberpunk 2077 and Mike Pondsmith replied.
“Yes, you can. They’re all going to be there, but I can tell you’re going to find some surprises about how we’ve done it and I think you’re really going to like it. There’s a lot of subtlety going on there. Adam (Kiciński, CD Projekt RED’s President and co-CEO) and I spent literally like a whole week messing with the ways of implementing that, so you get the most feel for your character.”
The classes (actually called roles) in the original Cyberpunk tabletop RPG are nine: Cop, Corporate, Fixer, Media, Netrunner, Nomad, Rockerboy, Solo, Techie, and Med-Tech.
Mike Pondsmith also stated that.
“The vision is really pretty close to what I had in my head years ago. When did the CGI trailer, I looked at it and said, ‘Oh my God, that’s like perfect’. And there were all these little touches from Cyberpunk in the background, because they’re fans. I said to me, ‘They really did it! That’s awesome.’ So, the feeling has stayed the same and we’ve also been continually developing it to keep that feeling.”
It’s hard to say at the moment whether CD Project will be able to pull off this game as the game has been in development for a long period of time and we have long history of bad games which has been in development for long time. Although CD Project has been really successful with their Witcher Franchise. So, there is still hope for Cyberpunk 2077.
