An imminent fear of dystopia and the inherent uncertainty of the future seem to go hand in hand, which is probably why the cyberpunk genre of fiction continues to be such a popular setting in all mediums of entertainment – which includes video games as well. There are just so many developers working on amazing-looking games that explore this theme in new and interesting ways, and we will be looking at 15 such upcoming cyberpunk games of 2023 and beyond.
Ghostrunner was easily one of the biggest surprise hits of 2020, and fans were absolutely impressed by its fresh gameplay ideas and the one hit one kill design philosophy overruling it all. A sequel was known to be in the works, and the recently unveiled Ghostrunner 2 looks primed to build upon the foundations of the original in new ways. Ghostrunner 2 will once again thrust players into the dystopian setting of Dharma City as they slash and dice their way through hordes of new enemy archetypes and other obstacles. In addition to having motorcycle levels, the game will also feature better boss fights and more complex level designs among a slew of other improvements. It releases for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S sometime in 2023.
