With the recent legal conundrums concerning the creator of The Witcher and his involvement with the work of CD Projekt RED, the question that some have been wondering about is - will this happen again with Cyberpunk 2077?
CD Projekt RED's very own Quest Designer Patrick Mills has sat down with DualShockers staff to discuss some of the aspects of the upcoming RPG blockbuster, and one of the subjects that popped up was the matter of source material creator involvement with the development of Cyberpunk 2077.
When asked about how much Mike Pondsmith, the original creator of the Cyberpunk Boardgame and Universe, is going to contribute to the story of 2077, Mills responded very positively, describing Pondsmith as "a great resource."
"He’s absolutely very available," said Mills. "His approval means a lot to the process. There are occasional disagreements, and that’s part of the creative process."
Mills was also happy to note that working with Podsmith has been "wonderful", but didn't have much to add in regard to the author of The Witcher books, as he missed his chance to work with the man. Considering all of this, it seems very unlikely we'll get another Sapkowskian drama in a decade or so, which is nice.
