Cyberpunk 2077 is the sequal to Cyberpunk 2020, taking place 57 years after its predecessor. The game is set in the dystopian Night City and is a first-person, open-world RPG. It’s a highly anticipated game, with the developers giving some details about the game recently. The game did receive some pushback after it was revealed that the game may use microtransactions to monetize the multiplayer mode despite earlier reports the game will have no microtransactions, though the developer CD Projekt Red assured fans that it will be a good value and not a cash grab.
