PlayStation is giving a peek behind the curtain at The Witcher games and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red today. CD Project Red was established in 2002 and is located in Warsaw (HQ), Kraków and Wrocław, Poland.
The studio’s founders, Michał Kiciński and Marcin Iwiński, both pioneers in video game distribution in Poland in the ’90s, decided to employ their gaming industry experience in video game development. In 2007, The Witcher was born.
Next up for the company is Cyberpunk 2077, a narrative-driven, open-world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. The game follows the story of V, a mercenary on the rise in a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers. Featuring CD Projekt RED’s hallmark concept of choices and consequences, players will face difficult decisions that ripple through the entire game. Winner of over 100 awards at E3 2018, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the universe of the classic pen & paper RPG system, Cyberpunk 2020.
Night City, California. Year 2077. The world is broken. MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. Down below, the streets are run by drug pushing gangs, tech hustlers, and illegal braindance slingers. The in-between is where decadence, sex and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.
You are V, a cyberpunk. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.
