Cyberpunk 2077 Will Reportedly Be A First-Person Shooter
CD Projekt RED has been a big name in the role playing genre with The Witcher series, having earned sizable success with their acclaimed trilogy of titles. The games are well-known for their combat focus from a third-person perspective, but the developer’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game may switch out this established gameplay style to become a first-person shooter.
According to a leak reported by Gamepressure, the futuristic adventure from CD Projekt RED is likely to feature shooter-based gameplay but not without keeping in line with the developer’s RPG strengths. Much like similar sci-fi titles like System Shock and Deus Ex, Cyberpunk 2077 is said to offer the immersive perspective alongside a myriad of the devs’ signature mechanics.
Currently both CD Projekt studios in Warsaw and Krakow are said to be hard at work, with the latter focusing on a portion of the game that takes place on the Moon. Fast-paced action is also reportedly a focus, with one apparent feature emulating the ability to run on walls, something we’ve already seen in the likes of Titanfall.
Of course, we shouldn’t take any of these potential updates too seriously as they are just unconfirmed speculation after all. In fact there’s still much left to be learned about the Cyberpunk 2077 game, with E3 2018 presenting a likely spot to unveil new details. If another recent rumor is to be believed, we can also expect a massive marketing push to begin by the end of the year. Hopefully by then, we’ll know more about CD Projekt’s next game than the bits and pieces we have now.
