There has been a lot of speculation going on regarding CD Projekt Red’s upcoming venture and it seems like we have finally got some hints about the game genre. According to a leak posted in gamepressure, the game will be a first person shooter and will compete against games like Prey, Deus Ex, to name a few. Gamepressure further says:
“CD Projekt Red has been making games for sixteen years now and there are three Witcher RPGs in their portfolio (excluding Gwent for the moment, since it’s a card game), in which we always watched our protagonist from the third person perspective. That’s why we could safely assume that the Warsaw-based studio will keep that feature in their upcoming title, Cyberpunk 2077. As we unofficialy found out, this time the thing will be completely different and the game will actually be a FPP game with elements characteristic for role-playing games.
If the abovementioned information turns out to be true, we’re in for a serious treat. Cyberpunk 2077 in a first-perspon perspective would be a direct competition to games like System Shock, Prey, and most of all – Deus Ex that always bathed deeply in cyberpunk. Looking back at CD Projekt Red’s gamedev achievements, we don’t suspect the game to be a regular shooter, but rather an action game full of RPG elements that will offer the players many ways of solving problems; basically, it should be closer to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided than BioShock. Our source also confirmed that both CD Projekt studios – based in Warsaw and Cracow – are hard at work, with the latter currently focusing on a fragment of the game, the action of which will take place on the Moon. The game is supposed to be fast-paced, and one of the features that the studio is working on is wall-running, similar to the one we already saw in Titanfall games.”
