The makers of Cyberpunk 2077 do not want to make a political statement with the game. Lead Quest Designer Pawel Sasko has now confirmed this in a question and answer session. And that after Mike Pondsmith said some time ago that the cyberpunk genre was "inherently political". The project by CD Projekt Red for PC, PS4 and Xbox One will be released on November 19, 2020.
Mike Pondsmith (inventor of the Cyberpunk Pen and Paper role-playing game) once said in an interview that the Cyberpunk brand has always been political. CD Projekt Red does not want to fully agree with Cyberpunk 2077. Lead Quest designer Pawel Sasko revealed in a question and answer session that the studio does not want to make a "political statement" with the game. His full answer:
"The most important thing for me is that our game is a closed work and not a political statement or a political thesis."
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19, 2020 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The title will also be directly compatible with the launch of the two next-gen consoles with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, including some improvements. In the distant future, however, another next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 is planned, which should take full advantage of the hardware of Sony and Microsoft.
Over the past few days, the CD Projekt Red team has repeatedly released new images from the upcoming game. The focus was on various areas of Night City. Almost a month ago, we were able to take a closer look at the title in our hands-on preview of Cyberpunk 2077. The game is currently not the only project from CD Projekt Red. Together with Netflix, an animated series called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is being worked on.
