In this Cyberpunk 2077 interview we talk about the making of Cyberpunk, how Pondsmith got involved and how Cyberpunk Red fits into the videogame. Enjoy and stick around for more Rock Paper Shotgun Cyberpunk 2077 coverage this week.

You’ve seen the Cyberpunk trailer and the Cyberpunk 2077 demo – with new Cyberpunk 2077 Gamescom gameplay arriving on Friday, so why not fill the time until then in the company of Mr Cyberpunk Mike Pondsmith. Our Cyberpunk interview covers everything from how he knew he had found a worthy studio in CD Projekt Red to advising the team about flying cars and the secret of good Cyberpunk 2077 weapons.
Before it was a videogame, Cyberpunk is a tabletop RPG, so we ask Mike about the challenges of transferring those rules, and the infinite potential of the human imagination, into a single virtual world. One of the interesting parts of the Cyberpunk 2077 Gamescom gameplay was seeing our V enter cyberspace – and we chat about the execution of that, too. Mike Pondsmith also has Cyberpunk Red coming out soon, so we ask how this adventure, set between Cyberpunk 2021 and Cyberpunk 2077, fits into things.
It’s very rare to see a creator so heavily involved in the videogame adaptation of their work, and so passionate about the world they’ve created. Later in the week we interview one of the members of the team about how they built Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City, and to see their admiration for Mike Pondsmith’s world building was endearing. So look out for that Cyberpunk 2077 feature later in the week.
We hope you enjoy this interview. We haven’t done many on the channel, so this is a bit of a test. Let us know what you think. And if you have any questions about the game, let us know – the Cyberpunk Gamescom demo is fresh in our mind and we’d be happy to help. Thanks to Mr Pondsmith for his time, and thanks to you for watching.
