The benevolent and acclaimed developers of The Witcher still aren't saying too much about their recently announced sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk, but a brief community Q&A today does provide a couple of new points worth mentioning.

Responding to a handful of forum questions, CD Projekt RED Community Manager Marcin Momot lets slip some interesting details on the game's inspirations, setting and character customsation.

On influences, Moment explains that in addition to the obvious pen and paper Cyberpunk tales, the developers are also drawing from sci-fi film and literature such as Blade Runner and William Gibson novels, as well as the original Ghost in the Shell anime and manga, as well as ShellShock and the original Deus Ex.

Momont also explains how character class abilities will differ from the way they were implemented in The Witcher games:
In Cyberpunk, each character role will offer a set of special skills that will impact your stats in many different ways. That’s where the challenge kicks in, we want to create a game where character customization will be strongly tied with the plot. Now going from that, we believe that we can make a game where, with many different role choices, you will get a very strong, engaging story, just like it was with The Witcher.
Whether the game will include a named protagonist like The Witcher's Geralt is still uncertain however, as the developer's vague answer only reveals that they "want to give players way more freedom with customization of the main protagonist" than with Geralt, but only mentions the examples of configuring "statistics, equipment, implants", and doesn't confirm the query about elective gender, ethnicity, or moral stance.

Lastly, according to Momont, the game's setting will be predominantly focused on the "most characteristic venue" from the Cyberpunk lore Night City, but the overall story "takes place all over the world".

There's no word on when screenshots or trailers for the game might be made available, and no announced release dates or platforms, although a PC focus like The Witcher games are expected.
