After speculation, CD Projekt Red confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 won’t go the way of The Witcher 3 and include a digital card game. This is despite its recent announcement of a physical Afterlife game and the existence of the Netrunner, set in its universe.

Speaking on Reddit (via The Gamer), CDPR’s Rafal Jacki told users that the studio is instead focusing on its new, standalone card game experience.

“Sorry all but we are not doing Netrunner in any way – I’m a fan of the game myself but we decided to create something new and stand alone. No plans to have a card game in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game,” he says.

Fans of Netrunner will be particularly saddened by this news as the game is currently out of support. Though it was designed by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield and published by Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight Games gained licensing permissions in 2012. It quickly released the updated Android: Netrunner but inexplicably ceased publishing new cards or printing old ones in late 2018.
