Hidden Message From CD Projekt Red Talks Future Goals
Ever since the announcement that the fine folks from CD Project Red would be taking a stab at the Cyberpunk universe (with collaboration from the creator of the pen & paper RPG Mike Pondsmith) we’ve been rather excited to learn more about the venture. As it stands, all we really know at the moment is that it will be an open world RPG, and there will be barely clothed cyborgs with giant bloody knife arms lurking within.
So, in preparation for a presentation event to be held on February 5th, CD Project has released a new trailer which also includes a hidden message from the team. We have both the trailer and the stealth communique for you to take a gander at after the jump.
You can spot the hidden message flash up at 2:14, but for those of you that are too lazy (or don’t have a screen / resolution big enough to read the text) we have helpfully written it out for you below:
Do you like our latest creation? We certainly hope so! :) You may remember that we sometimes send you guys secret messages like this. It's a great way for us to speak right to you instead of burying ourselves in corporate mumbo-jumbo, so let's begin!
First of all -- have you noticed all the details in our teaser (yes, it's a teaser. We'll have a proper trailer in the future)? If you know the Cyberpunk setting, there are some things you can spot, like implants -- look for the weapon hands and the real skin -- corporate emblems that should look familiar, and more. Happy hunting!
You're probably curious about the release date. It's currently scheduled a way off in 2015 but in truth, the delivery date is more like "when it's done." We will release Cyberpunk to you when we're convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome. We want it to be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever -- ok, maybe this sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal! You judge if we deliver it!
Oh -- and you may wonder why we announced our game so early before the release. The reason is that we’re still building our dev team, so if you are a talented dude or dudette, willing to work in a really different company (gamers rule & boring corporate stuff drools!) on a super ambitious project, send us your application right now: careers[at]cdprojectred[dot]com.
So, you want to know what kind of game Cyberpunk 2077 will be? The short description is that it will be a story-heavy, nonlinear, open world RPG based on the well known Cyberpunk pen & paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now, and we believe that properly joining nonlinear gameplay with an excellent story telling will bring a totoally new quality. Hmm... we'll tell you more about it soon!
And that's not all that's new. We are about to reveal our other project, which is much closer to being completed. And yes, it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we're talking about -- on the 5th of February it will be all clear.
So stay tuned, as we will have quite a lot to show and tell you soon!
We are waiting for you on our newly created forum called Afterlife -- what other name could we have chosen for it? :)
CD Projekt Red Team
In addition to the teaser, CD Projekt has also launched a new community forum called Afterlife for fans to discuss the upcoming RPG, which you can find by heading over to the official website. We’ll be sure to bring you more news on CD Projekt’s announcements at the start of next month.
