If they allow modding of the game then it will probably also scoop up all the current Fallout and Skyrim fan's, at least until Avowed is released and
then probably still keep the fallout fan's as well as attracting all the blade runner fan's that never got the game they wanted.
A Blade runner RPG should have been made and the lack of one is proof the games industry does not have a brain.
Imagine a full RPG set in the blade runner universe where you could play as a replicant, blade runner or even off world smuggler dealing with the
colonies and factions, corporate and otherwise with a variety of locations.
Visiting the derelicts at the battle site off the shoulder of Orion (Rutger Hauer improvised that on camera but it became legendary and expanded the
world of the movie far beyond it's much smaller original limitations) perhaps even a great starting location waking a Rutger Hauer clone or playing
one accidentally wakened from a still active sleep pod by black market salvagers scrapping the derelict attack ship's only to make your way back to
earth after finding out who and what you are.
Trying to find a cure for your cell death countdown or hunting a military grade replicant as a Deckard like blade runner (never really knowing that
you too may be a replicant as perhaps the original Deckard was originally meant to be), it was of course set in an alternative reality world in which
the late 20th and early 21st century had already seen humanity learn to colonise other worlds far from our own solar system and master genetic
engineering and cloning technology's so the blade runner universe was vast and has so much potential even though most of us just want to explore the
rain soaked city that was the setting of the original movie.
If modding is possible than sooner or later someone is going to make a blade runner total conversion, if it is done right it will be epic given the
game itself look's phenomenal and by that time since the Cyberpunk universe has it's own lore many blade runner fan's will perhaps be total converts
to this universe anyway.
Very few games have had as much development and resources poured into them as Cyberpunk 2077 and I get the impression this will also tempt over the
GTA and Halo fan's many of whom have never tried an RPG so let's hope they nail that in the game play and make it accessible for them as well.
Either way probably one of if not THE biggest title for over a decade and it will take some doing for any other studio to eclipse it especially when
the DLC start rolling out for it (They are probably already working on DLC even as they finalize this game).
