Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt Red will continue working together, post The Witcher. The World of Cyberpunk 2077 was just announced at Comic Con.
Lore and more
This news should get Cyberpunk fans excited, since Dark Horse knows their stuff when it comes to art books. Not that that’s solely what this new announcement entails. Nevertheless, I’m sure there’ll be a fair shake of art included.
But instead of simply an “art book”, The World of Cyberpunk 2077 will be much more:
Step into the year 2077, a world dotted with dystopian metropoles where violence, oppression, and cyberware implants aren’t just common–they’re necessary tools to get ahead. Delve into incisive lore to discover how the economic decline of the United States created a crippling dependence on devious corporations and birthed the Free State of California. Explore the various districts, gangs, and history of Night City. Learn all there is to know about the technology of tomorrow and research the cybernetics, weapons, and vehicles of Cyberpunk 2077.Dark Horse Comics press release
This new tome from the publisher is being called a “lore book”. That means it’ll include “an extensive examination of the rich lore of Cyberpunk 2077“. In all, Dark Horse promises history, characters and more for the book.
Watch for it to hit retail shelves just days after the game, on April 21st, 2020. Pre-orders are open now.
