A CD Projekt Red spokesperson has confirmed that it’s already too late for any major setting changes for “Cyberpunk 2077.” However, the developers are still open to the possibility of the game being set in medieval Europe. Previously, “The Witcher 3,” a medieval fantasy game, referenced this futuristic title.

CD Projekt Red spokesperson and UI designer Alvin Liu revealed some details about their “Cyberpunk 2077” development in an interview with Video Games Chronicle. While the spokesperson discussed a lot of details about the upcoming game’s quality, Liu also mentioned that changing the setting of the game to medieval Europe would not be feasible now but that the developers would do it if they could.

While the medieval setting is a far cry from the technological and futuristic visuals of the "Cyberpunk" genre, this comment could be connected to a reference in their previous game. In one of Geralt’s conversations with Ciri, “Cyberpunk 2077” was vaguely referenced in “Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” by one of its main characters.

In the “Witcher 3,” Ciri mentions something about staying in a world with “people having metal in their heads” and “flying ships” to evade Eredin who wants to use her powers to further his own agenda. This world could be Night City where “Cyberpunk 2077” is set in. Potentially, Liu may implying that the company is open to medieval content in “Cyberpunk 2077” in the future or it could just be a simple open-ended answer for the fans.

Previously, CD Projekt Red game director Adam Badowski didn’t seem fond of questions about a potential “Cyberpunk 2077” and “Witcher” crossover due to the reference. Badowski told Polygon in an interview that the upcoming game would not be “Kingdom Hearts,” which meant having an extremely convoluted plot of intertwining stories of many characters. So far, the development team has no interest in tying both of their games together.

“Cyberpunk 2077” is scheduled for release on April 2020. Many fans are excited not only because of its setting but also due to its reveals during E3 2019. Actor Keanu Reeves will be part of the game as one of the supporting characters to the playable main character.
