In our E3 2018 preview of Cyberpunk 2077—our first real look at the game—we noted with some surprise that, unlike The Witcher games, it will be a first-person shooter. CD Projekt pushed back on that a bit, insisting that it’s a “first person RPG,” although as we said in a followup, it was something of a “semantic dispute.”

“‘FPS’ can describe a certain style of game (eg, Wolfenstein), or literally mean ‘you shoot from a first-person view’,” we explained in an update. “The latter is absolutely the case, and what we mean. There are lots of guns, there’s cover, sliding, wall-runs, all the sorts of things we’ve seen in recent first-person shooters like Titanfall 2.”
