CD Projekt RED's RPG Tease

CD Projekt RED sends along this image to tease the new RPG they plan on unveiling at their summer conference tomorrow (no it's not actually summer yet). They offer this invitation: "Join us tomorrow for the live stream on http://facebook.com/thewitcher at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 5pm GMT." Here's word on plans to unveil this fully: "Hey folks... lots of speculation about what CD Projekt RED and GOG.com will talk about tomorrow during their Summer Conference. One thing's for sure... there will be an announcement about the new AAA RPG in development at the studio."

New Vegas isn't cyberpunk.
But there are no elves and orks

That's what I was thinking of when I said it.

that image is strongly reminiscent of the artwork in the pen and paper "Cyberpunk" game books....  
Go forth, and kill!

A RPG free of the swords and sorcery mumbo jumbo? Please say it's so. I love anything cyberpunk. Take my money! (it'll be a first - most of these RPG developers have never earned a dime from me, I love RPG game mechanics just can't stand the early afternoon children's tv show storylines).

Deus Ex! And that's pretty much it. Well, I guess EYE could be considered an RPG... kinda. Shadowrun as well, though that came out a while ago. I'm surprised there haven't been more cyberpunk RPGs. It seems like such an appropriate setting. I guess publishers are still fearful of non-fantasy settings.

New Vegas doesn't count?

New Vegas isn't cyberpunk.

Oh come on. Whilst the flavour of the Westwood game was spot on, it was pretty far from perfect.
You're right Cutter you were immaculately conceived.

I doubt they would make a point and click adventure game, the market in 3rd or 1st person rpgs is more profitable.

If they are using the Witcher 2 engine for this game, then I imagine that it won't be point and click.

Did IQ's drop suddenly around here? Obviously it's not going to be point and click. The point is Westwood's Blade Runner nailed the look and did the whole choices and consequences far better than 99% of actual RPG's. It even had a dozen endings and character randomization few can touch. Do that from the full RPG perspective and it will be amazing.

Go play the game now.

But to echo what others have said here, I'm almost sure to love anything from CD Projekt so they can take my money!

Explain. I've played just about every point and click adventure game ever made and Blade Runner remains near the top. Its only glaring weakness was the clunky shooting mechanics. But of course this being the internet there's always somebody who has to start an argument.

Pretty much. And a cyberpunk RPG takes it up another level in interest for me.

Reminds me of some of the concept drawings done by Syd Mead for Blade Runner and other films.
