There is a lot of hype surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 right now, impressing audiences at two E3s in a row. At both events, CD Projekt RED showed off compelling trailers with the second one revealing that Keanu Reeves will be in the game. You might have noticed - it's only dominated the internet ever since.
E3 of course added to the excitement surrounding the game, but the initial interest undeniably came from the fact that it shares a developer with the incredible The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
CD Projekt RED's Witcher series is brilliant, and the third game in particular will go down as one of the greatest RPGs in recent history. It launched the franchise to new heights, and with that came a huge amount of expectation for the dev's next release.
Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to differ greatly from the Witcher series, as it's set in a distinct open world and its first-person view means it will also play very differently. However, CD Projekt RED have hopefully not ignored The Witcher 3 completely, as it did so many things right that their new IP could benefit from.
