Confirmed in a Reddit post by tabletop game designer Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2077 is in the same timeline as its boardgame origin Cyberpunk 2020.
Upon hearing rumours that CD Projekt RED’s upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is in a separate universe to the Cyberpunk tabletop games, Pondsmith took it into his own hands to silence them.
Pondsmith stated, “To clear this [rumour] up, I am posting right here and now that the timeline is unified, with the path moving from Cyberpunk 2013 through Cyberpunk 2020, then through Cyberpunk RED and up to Cyberpunk 2077.”
What this means for the series as a whole is yet unknown, but Pondsmith states that there will be “more on this later,” meaning that there may be some familiar sights in Cyberpunk 2077. The game’s narrative director, though, opened up about the game’s narrative last week.
