CDP On Cyberpunk’s Trailer, Social Commentary In Games

RPS:CD Projekt’s been quite busy as of late. Most recently, it teased some whizzbang, probably Witcher-3-related engine tech, but potentially even more intriguing is Cyberpunk 2077, a whole new world full of intrigue, transhuman tech, and deranged Scyther ladies. However, while a recent CG trailer gave us a tantalizing glimpse of Night City’s corruption-twisted guts, it didn’t leave us with too terribly much to go on. Also, it had some elements that could be considered problematic – at least, from an imagery standpoint. if not entirely on an intentional level. So I got in touch with Project Lead Mateusz Kanik to discuss what the trailer way trying to show us, games’ responsibility within the larger social sphere, potential allegories for game addiction within Cyberpunk, and whether or not the final game has any chance of actually looking that good. It’s all after the break. (Cyberpunk 2077, PC)
