Cyberpunk 2077
  • Developer: CD Projekt Red
  • Publisher: CD Projekt
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBA

Best known for their works on The Witcher series, CD Projekt already has a big following on their current project in development. Cyberpunk 2077 was announced back in 2012 though news about the game was scarce. Instead, since its announcement, the focus was put on The Witcher series, though now that the series has finished up, we can expect more announcements and reveals in regards to this upcoming science fiction title.

Cyberpunk 2077 is already confirmed to be an open-world RPG that will be set in the future. Much of the world has been divided into social classes with the lower class subjected to living in harsh old city environments filled with gangs and famine.

While we’re still waiting for some of the finer details to be announced for the game, CD Projekt has noted that this will be the biggest open-world they have ever worked on. As such, we may see plenty of quests available and areas to explore.


The Surge 2

The Surge was a science fiction action RPG which takes place in the future where humanity has used up the various world resources. As a result, humanity becomes strained with most seeking use of technological advances to maintain their daily lives.

The video game will still follow the same overall gameplay mechanics as a platform title.

Within the game, players will follow Raz after the events of Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, which is a title developed for the PlayStation VR to bridge the first Psychonauts game to the upcoming sequel.

The video game is set on a world in which humanity seeks refuge behind walls as monstrous aliens lurk outside. Players will step into the shoes of a Freelancer, a member of an organization that explores the open world beyond the wall.
