I remember the days when Cyberpunk 2020 was the definitive role playing game about a high tech dystopian future. William Gibson‘s world featuring the neuromancer was fully realized in this product and with that year right around the corner, we are not there yet. Virtual Reality ala the Matrix has not taken hold! Flash forward to now, Dark Horse Books and CD Projekt RED have advanced the time frame to look at The World of Cyberpunk 2077!
I almost have to ask myself what happened? Has some conglomerate slowed the technological efforts so all that BioWare take place much later? Technically, Mike Pondsmith (creator of the game) revealed more than a few wars happened with the game universe. Cyberpunk 203X explains what happened, and players of the pen and paper game derided the shift to using miniatures to power the imagination.
