The cyber role-playing game company that underpins Cyberpunk 2077 has issued a detailed statement about the ongoing U.S. riots.

The CD Project is Red Cyberpunk 2077 is the basis Cyberpunk is a desktop role-playing game publisher, R. Talsorian Games reports to its fans on the latest developments about the company in a longer post on the first Friday of each month, but their most recent such announcement has become radically different from the others.

In connection with Mike Pondsmith, the founder of R. Talsorian Games and the inventor of the original role-playing game Cyberpunk, the announcement in question started immediately:

“As most of you know very well, Mike Pondsmith is black, among many others. To our knowledge, R. Talsorian Games was the first major role-playing company founded by a black man. In our view, it remains one of the most significant black-owned and operated companies. , a board game company. “

Pondsmith is really a huge name in the industry anyway, the announcement specifically states that until last year she was the only black member of the Hall of Fame called “Origins Hall of Fame” – where the most significant figures from the world of board and role-playing games are collected. Pondsmith has spent the last few days systematizing his thoughts on the wave of protests that have shaken the entire United States, and is currently working on writing a statement of his own, in which he wants to share his own views on these rather difficult issues. It has already been revealed that Pondsmith is also pondering what it really means to say that the dystopian future, which he has just described as a fantasy and to which he practically owes his career, is slowly turning into a dystopian appearance. The company’s statement describes their position on racism in rather specific and strong words:

“We not only condemn racism, we downright despise it.”

R. Talsorian Games has now donated $ 2,000 to an organization called the Bail Project in the first round, but they made it clear that this is just the beginning, they want to make it serious in the future to become a better place in the world and not end up in a future as Cyberpunk paints. According to Pondsmith, the Cyberpunk role-playing game was a warning, not a desire.
