Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification.
"No plans to have a card game in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game", he says.
The news comes as Cyberpunk Red, a tabletop prequel to 2077, launches its Jumpstart Kit, with a full version coming at a later date. Fixers are the databrokers and masterminds in Night City who recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and send them out on missions. You need to balance between what you want and what you can actually afford.
"Each successful mission raises the player's Street Cred, with mission survivors becoming Veterans, imparting their knowledge and experience to newer recruits. In this chrome-infused world, Street Cred is the only currency that matters". It combines this with a special dashboard from which players much choose which cards to buy, or which do they sacrifice for more funds to buy other cards.

In recent days, an enormous swarm of the insects has descended on the city, alarming residents and tourists alike. The winged insects may outnumber the humans in some parts of town, but it's nothing to worry about.
After speculation, CD Projekt Red confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 won't go the way of The Witcher 3 and include a digital card game. I grew up playing the RPG and have kept up with the franchise through the years. It's due out in 2020, and is manufactured by tabletop game company, CMON. Andrea Chiarvesio, the designer of Arcanum, also shares design duties. This is despite its recent announcement of a physical Afterlife game and the existence of the Netrunner, set in its universe.
The Cyberpunk 2077 card game sees players cast as Fixers; that is, folk who hire cyberpunks such as the game's protagonist to do their dirty work for them.
This means it could arrive before or after Cyberpunk 2077 is released on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
