Developed by CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077 has a release date of April 16, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game is adapted from the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 (originally released in 1988 and subsequently re-released in 1990) and set in the year 2077, starring a mercenary simply known as "V." Cyberpunk 2077 continues to utilize the futuristic, gritty and technological aesthetic that the original tabletop game has become so known for. An action adventure roleplaying experience, V is customizable and the player takes his or her first-person view of the events of the game. Cyberpunk 2077 has received much attention for the fact that it stars Keanu Reeves in a prominent role and that it has spent much time in development. Several trailers were released prior to the game's release date announcement and trailer at E3 2019.

According to the Gog.com description of the game, Cyberpunk 2077:

 

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset, and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.

Become a cyberpunk, an urban mercenary equipped with cybernetic enhancements and build your legend on the streets of Night City.

 

Enter the massive open world of Night City, a place that sets new standards in terms of visuals, complexity and depth.

Take the riskiest job of your life and go after a prototype implant that is the key to immortality."

 

The Cyberpunk universe was originally created by Mike Pondsmith.

The release date of April 16, 2020, was originally announced at E3 2019, which also featured a surprise appearance by Keanu Reeves himself to promote the game.
