CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 – teaser trailer released

You might remember CD Projekt Red from excellent games such as Witcher 1 and Witcher 2. They’re now working on a adaptation of the Cyberpunk pen and paper games in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. Feast your meatbag eyes on the following trailer:

An excerpt from the video description sets up the action:

The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” — individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body. When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the Psycho Squad.

While I’m not really stoked on trailers that do not feature gameplay, I’m willing to take this one on the pedigree of CD Projekt Red alone, being a huge Witcher fan. This is definitely one we will keep watch on until… you know… when it’s ready.

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    looks awesome! I’d love to see it as a full length film too!

    I think it has a lot of potential – though I do want to see how they’ll portray women in the world (given the Witcher’s history). It’s so hard to say without seeing anything about what the actual game would be like, though.

    • Yeah, the Witcher is pretty medieval in that sense. Maybe in Cyberpink 2077 you’ll collect Holo-“cards” of dudes you bed, lol.

      Seriously, hopefully that’s just a byproduct of the setting, and not the studio itself. Rembmer, that the Witcher was based off of a novel series, so it may be the writers original intent.

        Yeah, I’ve thought about reading the Witcher books. We’ll have to see 🙂 look forward to learning more, thanks for the heads up, you’s guys.
