    CD Projekt, the developers behind The Witcher franchise, have announced and released the teaser trailer for their new game, Cyberpunk 2077.​
    The game follows the Maximum Force Tactical Division (MAX-TC), nicknamed the "Psycho Squad", a special law enforcement division tasked with taking down those who have overused implants and substances. These psychos have augmented themselves to the point of rebeling against their own organic self, as well as all organic beings around them.​
    The trailer shows off the police firing on a woman psycho after her rampage, and the Psycho Squad coming in to finish her off. Later, it appears, she actually joins the Psycho Squad. CD Projekt has also stated that the game will be released in 2015 the earliest, as well as hinting a 2014 release date for The Witcher 3. More info can be found at the source.​
    No consoles were announced for the title, but presumably it will be for the next generation.​

    That's quite an interesting choice for a story line.

    Alright, I'm sold.

    I sure hope this game doesn't end up sucking - I'd feel cyber-punk'd.

    Hory Sheet Batman, my cyberpunk-loving heart just had a nerdgasm - this looks incredibly appealing. Hunting rogue androids may be a tried-and-true concept that's been used a hundred times already, but hell, it never gets boring... plus, it's CD Project - it's close to my heart as it is.

    Was it an actual trailer or just CGI? I mean it was great CGI and the concept alone has me quite interested (especially if it is from the witcher people) but without gameplay I can only marvel at fireworks.

    Pretty sure it was just CGI. It's basically just a teaser.

    Is this really so important that it needs to be on the home page?

    Well that's too bad.

    Anyway, I really liked the trailer after a second viewing. I wasn't too fond of The Witcher but this looks quite interesting and I look forward to it. Unfortunately you probably won't see much as it's got a ways to go until a possible release. 2015 is the earliest, it could be 2016 or 2017... or 2077.

    No, i think the trailer is awesome too but its not so important to be set on the home page.
    It's like posting the announcement of Pokemon X/Y.

    Well too bad, it's not your decision. I thought it looked cool to see a promising new IP come from a respected dev with a really interesting teaser. So I posted it.

    End of discussion.

    Yes, and especially because it's from the very good folks at CD Projekt!

    I can't wait for Witcher 3 honestly, very glad to see they are working on it. Hopefully 2014, hopefully same trend as with Witcher 1 & 2!
    Seeing they announce new projects, I guess they have some good financial results if we see such new titles announced. 2015 though, such a long time for that Cyberpunk game.

    This looks cool. I never heard of this particular game franchise before, but the fact that it's an RPG gets my attention right away. Tried watching the video in HD on YouTube but it was jerky no matter what the resolution was. On GBATemp HD looks very much not HD on my computer, not really sure why.

    Rouge androids aren't so bad. It's the rogue ones you have to worry about ;)

    Music by Daft Punk.

    WE CAN BELIEVE.

    EDIT: Although if we're doing cyberpunk I'd be inclined to go with Blue Stahli.

    Daft Punk for fucking lief. I mean, they're the incarnation of the entire Cyborg dilemma. Watch Daft Punk's Electroma, then: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8430/7686178464_fdc8ea66c7_z.jpg
