The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
Cyberpunk 2077 Teaser Trailer Drops, Impresses

If this doesn't end up on consoles, next-gen or otherwise, then there's something very wrong with the world. We're talking about Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED's triple-A action RPG based upon the classic 80s pen-and-paper game created by Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2020.

The CG teaser trailer has dropped today, and it looks utterly amazing, drawing a number of sci-fi influences including Blade Runner. That flying police car for example? Pure Blade Runner. In the teaser trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 you'll get to see how the so-called 'Psycho Squad' recruits a new member.

Otherwise know as the MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division) the Psycho Squad is a team of crack troops charged with tackling 'psychos', humans who overuse implants and substances to boost and alter their biological make up. These individuals go on a rampage, killing what they call 'meatbags'. You can see how Psycho Squad deal with their targets in the video.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be out "when it's ready" and there'll be more information on the game on February 5th, 2013. Here's hoping said info includes the announcement of consoles as one of the platforms for the game. Please.

Currently playing Witcher 2, after having it sitting since April. WHY DID I WAIT SO DAMN LONG?!?!? So yeah, CD Projekt Red to me are what Bioware used to be.

I like the fact they don't care when it's out, they are just happy to make us wait until they are ready and think the game is finished. I wish more developers would do this instead of letting the publisher determine when the game has to be finished, well more accurately finished with flaws, meaning having to have a vital day one patch which only just makes it playable(cough cough AC3). More on topic looks brilliant, I'm just hoping it has a really nice in depth and detailed story and not just running and gunning.

While really over-hyped, Witcher 2 was a really good game and this looks very promising as well. Can't wait to see more of it.

"coming: When it's ready"

did you see that EA? They actually release games when they're finished. Who would have thought!

Given its not due till 2015 and it's CD project I can see it launching on PC then being ported to next gen consoles a few months later.

If the gameplay matches the visuals, this is going to be something special. And, like everyone else, loved the "coming: when it's ready" line.

It's finally happened. Someone has made better CG than Square Enix. If this is what the future holds for gaming I can not wait. It looks amazing

This is next gen no question, with a release date of 2014/2015 how could it not be. Plus it will be on consoles as one of the main reasons they built the Witcher 2 from the ground up for the 360 is so they got the Red Engine running on console architecture with the intention of bringing all of their future products to systems other than the PC :)

Also, CD Projekt Red

If anyone was curious, the name of the song played during the trailer was Archive's "Bullets". Didn't know if anyone mentioned that yet.

The Witcher 2 is great game in last year for Xbox 360. New trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 look good and it look like Mass Effect for weapons and bullet shoots. So maybe this game is bit like Mass Effect series's gameplay. Look forward to see what gameplay show is like in upcoming annoucement of first gameplay video trailer show-off. ;P

If its even half as good as The Witcher 2 it'll be a must own. But I'd still rather have The Witcher 3, which rumor has it, we will be getting before this.

From what IGN said the developer says you build your character from the ground up.
