'Cyberpunk 2077' will be both "cyber" and "punk"

CD Projekt RED's upcoming futuristic shooter title, Cyberpunk 2077, won't just be a futuristic shooter, it will be smarter than that.

According to the game's director Mateusz Kanik, speaking with IGN, stated that a video game based off of a table top game doesn't work well with dice rolls when you have RPG elements.
“We want to make it more action-like – there will be a system that lets you use active skills actually in the gameplay in a shooting sequence or something like that, rather than just passive skills like in the books,” he said. “But also it’s important to still keep the mood and the original feel of Cyberpunk – we don’t want to just create a science-fiction game. It’s easy to do that.

“We still want to balance it with those main features and the mood from the Cyberpunk original. This is a huge task, I think.”
Futhermore, the game's creative director Sebastian Stepien stated that the game won't be a "cyberpunk" title in looks only.
“This is very, very important. The style and mood and atmosphere of this world, what you do at the bar, what do you drink, how you react with other people, what dialogue you choose –all these things let us keep the Cyberpunk atmosphere all the time,” said Stepien.

“There are lots of cyber games around, but there’s not a lot of punk in those games,” Mateusz added . “We want to put more punk into ours. We do not want to make a dark and hopeless world. We are not doing Blade Runner. It will be full of rock and roll.”

“It’s more like a Tarantino approach,” added Sebastian.
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected in 2015.
