Do you like our latest creation? We certainly hope so! : ) You may remember that we sometimes send you guys secret messages like this. It's a great way for us to speak right to you instead of burying ourselves in corporate mumbo-jumbo so lets begin!
First of all--have you noticed all the details in our teaser (yes, it's a teaser we'll have a proper trailer in the future)? If you know the Cyberpunk setting, there are some things you can spot, like implants--look for the weapon hands and the real skin -- corporate emblems that should look familiar, and more. Happy hunting!
You're probably curious about the release date. It's currently scheduled a way off in 2015 but in truth the delivery date is more like "when it's done". We will release Cyberpunk to you when we're convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome. We want it to be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever--OK, maybe that sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal! You judge if we deliver it!
Oh--and you may wonder why we announced our game so early before the release. The reason is that we're still building our dev team so if you are a talented dude or dudette, willing to work in a really different company (gamers rule & boring corporate stuff drools!) on a super ambitious project send us your application right now! firstname.lastname@example.org
So, you want to know what kind of game Cyberpunk 2077 will be? The short description is that it will be a story-heavy nonlinear, open world RPG based on the well known Cyberpunk Pen&Paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now, and we believe that properly joining nonlinear gameplay with an excellent story telling will bring a totally new quality hmm we'll tell some more about it soon!
And that's not all that's new! We are about to reveal our other project, which is much closer to being completed and yes, it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we're talking about : ) on the 5th of February, it will be all clear.
So stay tuned, as we will have quite a lot to show and tell you soon!
We are waiting for you on our newly created forum called Afterlife--what other name could we have chosen for it? : )

For those who haven't played the tabletop game: Night City's Psychosquad (MAX-TAC) is a special police unit that responds to situations involving cyborgs that go crazy (cyberpsychosis). They often "recruit" from the pool of cyborgs that go crazy, by reprogramming them to serve in the Psychosquad and save people to pay for their former crimes. That's what you're seeing in the trailer. It's playback of how a female MAX-TAC officer became part of the squad.
"Memories. You're talking about memories."
Am I the only one disappointed with this teaser ?
