When Was Cyberpunk 2077 Announced?


Cyberpunk 2077 was announced by CD Projekt RED in May 2012 (that’s over eight years ago) and the first trailer of the game dropped in the following year. CDPR had been working on this title even before Witcher 3: Blood and Wine released.

A small team was dedicated to the development of the project which kept on growing as things started to catch pace. For an all-inclusive game that’s set in a dystopian future, Cyberpunk 2077 has been by far the most ambitious project taken by CDPR while basing the setting of the game on Mike Pondsmith’s Cyberpunk franchise.

Other inspirations of the game came from pop culture films and tv shows especially Blade Runner, Ghost In The Shell, and Deus Ex game. These have been credited with being the basis of the game and CDPR hope to bring all the elements of the above mentioned together to create a never seen before experience.
