In many preview of Cyberpunk 2077, which the journalists were released last week, it was noted that the game has a large variability, but no classic role play. The developers from CD Projekt RED seems to also understand this, so they decided without unnecessary statements to stop position your future project as a RPG. Now the future creation CDPR should consider adventure action.
On such a change became known thanks to the description on the official website of the game. It says: “Cyberpunk 2077 is an action adventure open world, which the unfolding events in night city, metropolis, obsessed with power, brilliance and body modifications. You play as VI, the wage of the offender, wanting to get one of a kind implant that gives the bearer immortality. The user can select an individual set of cybernetic modifications, skills and style of the passage, and explore the town where your choices will shape the story and world around the character“.
In the description there are no words RPG or “role playing”, although in the Russian version of the official site of Cyberpunk 2077 they are present.
Judging by the screenshot posted above, CD Projekt RED changed the genre a year ago, but decided not to declare. The picture shows that back in may of 2019 at the official Twitter account Cyberpunk 2077 marketed as RPG. A month later in a microblog of the project to replace the phrase “role playing game” it’s “action adventure”.
CD Projekt RED has not commented on these details.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and GeForce Now. Later will release the game on next-generation consoles and Google Stadia.
