Cyberpunk, both the genre and the R. Talsorian RPG, has always been about an alternate version of the present day.

  I will probably be waiting for a while on this one.  I feel like I have been a beta tester for 3-4 games the past 6 years, and it gets on my nerves.

1, I currently don't have the cash to buy it.
2. My rig is probably not up to spec for it. See 1. re. upgrading my rig.

So I'm left out - for now, at least.

No, in the 80's cyberpunk was definitely set in the future, with tech that simply didn't exist at the time.

40 years later, much of what was predicted has come to pass, but often not exactly as predicted. VR has existed for decades, but is not the dominant interface, nor is it likely to become dominant. We have cybernetic limbs, but they don't generally provide advantages over flesh and blood. National boundaries didn't break down or go away, and corporations are generally beholden to them to provide essential banking, stock markets, stable currencies, legal systems and consumer markets. We don't have offworld colonies, but we probably will before 2050.

We have made progress in AI, but AI looks more like Google Search than anything anthropomorphic.

Basically, cyberpunk is an alternate universe now, but that split happened over the last 40 years.

Sony just removed Cyberpunk 2077 from the Playstation Store until further notice.

That's a black eye for CD Projekt Red, for sure.
