CMON and CD Project Red have jointly announced a Cyberpunk 2077 card game. The card game is called Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game.

The card game was developed by game developer Eric M. Lang and is the first collaboration between the two parties, but certainly not the last. “I am a big fan of Cyberpunk and have been playing it since the first edition, when I was a kid I often played tabletop RPGs and the franchise has always remained true,” Lang says.

“These kind of board games are extremely popular in our studio and hopefully also with our audience, we feel honored that we can collaborate with CMON and can’t wait to share our vision with the world,” adds CD Project Red Rafal Jaki, business development manager to.

The card game takes place in the dark streets of Night City, the backdrop of Cyberpunk 2077. These streets are bursting with gangs that are constantly at war with large corporations for money, power and control. Unlike the immensely popular card game Gwent, known from The Witcher, the card game Afterlife does not appear in the game itself. The card game is therefore only physically available.

Talsorian Gamer previously also announced a new Cyberpunk tabletop RPG and was made in collaboration with developer CD Projekt Red. The board game takes place 33 years before the story of the most anticipated game of 2020: Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a sequel to the RPG board game that was conceived by Mike Pondsmith. This tabletop RPG was published in 1988 by R. Talsorian. The game was reissued in 1990 under the name Cyberpunk 2020. The first series of books have now been released and the franchise continues to grow.

Pondsmith describes the relationship between the board game and the game of CD Project Red with a Star Wars reference: “The board game of Talsorian is The Empire Strikes Back, while 2077 of CD Projekt Red more embodies the Return of the Jedi”.
