What will separate Cyberpunk 2077 from other games is its “rock and roll” vibe similar to the films of Quentin Tarantino. That’s according to lead developers at CD Projekt Red, who explained to IGN in a new interview that most cyberpunk games actually lack punk.
“There are lots of cyber games around, but there’s not a lot of punk in those games,” said game director Mateusz Kanik. “We want to put more punk into ours. We do not want to make a dark and hopeless world. We are not doing Blade Runner. It will be full of rock and roll.”
“It’s more like a Tarantino approach,” creative director Sebastian Stepien added.
Tarantino’s body of work includes his debut effort Reservoir Dogs, as well as Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, and last year’s Django Unchained. The director is known for telling violent, nonlinear stories through his films.
Cyberpunk 2077 puts players into a “dark future” in 2077 where advanced technologies have become “both the salvation and the curse of humanity.” The game promises a nonlinear story designed for “mature” players and is set in the metropolis of Night City.
The game has been confirmed only for PC thus far and has no release date.
