Cyberpunk 2077 is a planned action role-playing video game developed by CD Projekt RED, based on the Cyberpunk series of tabletop role-playing games. Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a dystopian futuristic world in which ultra-modern technology co-exists with a degenerated human society. First announced in May 2012, as of June 2016, the game is still under development with no confirmed release date.
The developers of Cyberpunk 2077 aim the game to be mature and ambitious, with character customization being strongly tied to the plot. Planned features include a non-linear story with different character classes, as well as both first-person and third-person perspectives.
Lead writer Sebastian Stępień said the game will have non-player characters speaking in non-English languages. Player characters who don’t speak the language will have to buy a translator implant to understand them. Stępień also said they would try to get native speakers to do the voices. Stępień has stated that “You can’t reliably recreate the street slang of Los Angeles or some other American city; you can’t simply dub it and reproduce those emotions, rhythm of speech, mannerisms… Otherwise we’d simply hear that Polish actors are trying to imitate Americans. That won’t work.”
