CD Projekt RED gathered questions from the community and answered a few of them in detail. Here is the first one:
“Richie79: What elements are you using as inspiration (references) for making Cyberpunk?
Marcin Momot: There are quite a few actually. Aside from the obvious ones like the works of William Gibson or the Blade Runner movie, we also take from the first Ghost in the shell, both anime and manga. We’re also looking up to ShellShock because of its interesting approach to gameplay. The first part of Deus Ex is also a very important source of inspiration to us.”
