Cyberpunk 2077 Series Highlights The Corporations Running Night City
Knowing that Cyberpunk 2077 likely won’t see a release for a couple more years, we are willing to listen to anything CD Projekt RED has to say about the game until then. That said, their “Frame by Frame” series takes a deeper look into the incredible trailer that was shown during Microsoft’s showcase at this year’s E3.
A recent installment gives fans a closer look at just who might be running things behind the scenes in Night City. Arasaka and Militech are both named, but they said that “Night City is a global center for megacorporation operations and home to regional branches of corporate giants.” Here’s a bit more about each corporation:
“In Night City, Arasaka specializes in protective services and the distribution of their Japanese-made products throughout North America. Over the years, it has developed a dark reputation as a corporation that is to be feared and one which covers its tracks using cyberassassins, an army of lawyers as well an alleged connection to the yakuza.
Militech, on the other hand, is an arms dealer based out of the eastern US. Working closely with police and military forces, it has substantially contributed to civilian security systems. It’s a powerhouse manufacturer of high-grade military technology — from simple firearms to heavily armored combat vehicles.”
Giant corporations aren’t the only ones getting a piece of the pie in Cyberpunk 2077. The same installment of the series also put a focus on the smaller businesses that make up Night City. Mainly, it describes where the shops around the city have found their inspiration.
According to CDPR, “Night City is home to many shops, restaurants, and decor that draw inspiration from Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, and Indian culture, among others. These include Kiroshi Optics, Kabayan Foods, Fuyutsuki Electronics, and Masala Studios as well as maneki-neko figurines and tengu imagery that enrich the world.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has no official release date as of yet, but it is expected to be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
