Some rumors stated that the Cyberpunk 2077 video game and the Cyberpunk 2020 board game were somehow disconnected from each other, as they were based on two very different timelines. These rumors were denied by one of the interested parties: Mike Pondsmith, as well as the creator of the well-known boardgame and consultant of CD Projekt RED.
In an official post on Reddit dedicated to the new futuristic-themed role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077, Pondsmith himself commented on the so much rumored news, stating the exact opposite of what was happening on the web.
In that sense, Pondsmith stated the following: “There’s still an incorrect interview floating around the interwebs that states that Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk 2020 are separate timelines. To clear this up, I am posting RIGHT HERE AND NOW that the timeline is unified, with the path moving from Cyberpunk 2013 thru Cyberpunk 2020, then through Cyberpunk RED and up to Cyberpunk 2077.
Lord knows, we spent enough time hashing the details out over the past six months. Expect more on this later. Back to your cyberlives, everyone,” wrote Pondsmith in the post.
This is sensational news for fans of the series who will see the famous universe, first imagined, become reality, thanks to the commitment that the CD Projekt RED studio has taken towards the title. A lot of wrong information is circulating on Cyberpunk 2077, but as Mike Pondsmith confirms, the release date will be announced when “the game will be ready.”
In other news, it was confirmed that the game will be different from what was shown at E3 2018. We also remind you that the title is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the software house development studios that gave birth to games from the likes of The Witcher.
