During the last few days, information has been pointing to the fact that Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated RPG in which the authors of The Witcher series work, would lead to a different timeline than the board game in which it is inspired , the great Cyberpunk 2020, but the author of the original work has denied this information. The video game CD Projekt RED sets his action in the same universe as his role-playing game.
The confusion arose after a presentation by Mike Pondsmith at the last PAX West. There, the author of Cyberpunk 2020 commented that the game would continue ” with the timeline and there will be things that were seen in 2020, but they will have changed a bit. & Quot; I have referred to such aspects as the rise of mobile phones. ” Facts like mobile phones will go from being bricks to being the size of your thumb, and then they have turned into bricks again. So we will see changes in technology ”
Some media interpreted these words so that the game would be on an alternative timeline, but nothing is further from reality. ” There is incorrect information swarming out there that says that Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk 2020 are different timelines. To be clear “, Pondsmith wrote,” I tell you that the timeline is unified. “
It is expected that we will know new details of Cyberpunk 2077 next June during the celebration of the video game fair most important in the world. During the last months the companies have already advanced some of their plans, and here you can check the dates and times of E3 2019.
