Though we know that Cyberpunk 2077 is related to the tabletop game of the same name, there’s been some confusion as to where the game will fit in with the canon. While rumors have circulated that the game is taking its own path, Mike Pondsmith the tabletop game’s original creator, took to Reddit to provide clarity.
There’s still an incorrect interview floating around the interwebs that states that Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk 2020 are separate timelines. To clear this up, I am posting RIGHT HERE AND NOW that the timeline is unified, with the path moving from Cyberpunk 2013 thru Cyberpunk 2020, then through Cyberpunk RED and up to Cyberpunk 2077.

Lord knows, we spent enough time hashing the details out over the past six months. Expect more on this later.
Given CDPR’s handling of the Witcher series through the games (even with some liberties being taken), it’s no surprise to us that they are working closely with Mike Pondsmith to ensure Cyberpunk 2077 fits into the canon of the world properly. The title remains one of our most anticipated titles and we can’t wait to see what’s in store next month!
