BlackHand & SilverHand[edit]

I'm removing the reference to Morgan Blackhand & Johnny Silverhand being brothers because I haven't been able to find a reference to it in any of the cyberpunk 2020 literature. If anyone has a reference for this, cite it please. --The HellHound 101 04:20, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I very much doubt one exists. Both of them have their full statblocks written out multiple times in the books, and this bit of history has never surfaced in them. --Agamemnon2 07:43, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Cyberpunk 2013[edit]

There should be a section on the first edition of Cyberpunk. Does anyone have the original material to help verify material? -- Rossumcapek 02:15, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Should we have 3 pages (one for each of the editions)? I don't think so, but the name of the page actually refers to the 2nd edition. (first ed. was "Cyberpunk 2013"...) Tajoman 02:30, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
I think this page should move to Cyberpunk (role-playing game) with material on all three editions. 2020 came out only a few years after 2013, and 203X only has the one book thus far; While 2020 has more material, it's impossible to talk about one edition without discussing and incorporating the others. Rossumcapek 06:39, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
I think that sounds like a good idea. I think we should still have the CP2020 page, but have it be an "alias" (ie, have it redirect automatically) to the Cyberpunk Rpg page... I guess that would work alright. If we find that we start to have to much to say about a particular edition, then we could split the page into one per edition. Right? Tajoman 22:11, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Sorry for the edit, added a link to 2013 because I wanted more info on it before checking the discussion page... Gomez 01:54, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

  • I concur with all the above, it makes sense for a relatively small RPG franchise to be discussed all within one article. --Agamemnon2 07:44, 21 April 2006 (UTC)


While having them all in one place makes sense for convenience, 2020 definately has the largest fan base. Wisdom000 23:55, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Er... there's something wrong indeed. The first edition (1988) was called "Cyberpunk" only and not "Cyberpunk 2013". The suffix 2013 only came later to differentiate it from the second edition, "Cyberpunk 2020". Until this new edition, no one ever talked about CP as CP2013. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.57.187.76 (talk) 23:55, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Cyberpunk 3 Fansites[edit]

Are there any other fansites for CyberPunk 3 other than the BlackHammer Project 3?The HellHound 101 20:29, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I could make a snide remark at this point, but would it really be worth the eventual guilt? Probably. --Agamemnon2 22:04, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Sure you could, Aggy, but that wouldn't be very nice. Sure, BH3 is my own site, but I was hoping to be able to link to other CP3 sites in addition to mine in the links portion of the page. The HellHound 101
Aw, takin' away my fun. Oh vell. --Agamemnon2 22:37, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Other than your site Hound, the only V3 sites I have come across have been yahoo clubs and the like, none of them ever seemed very active either.Wisdom000 23:54, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Cybergeneration split[edit]

I suggest the subsection is split off into its own article, as it's getting to be quite weighty, and would add to the clarity of the CP2020 article, as well as allow for more information on the Cybergeneration products to be added. --Agamemnon2 17:34, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Links[edit]

The link to Cyberpunk on Geekdo (Boardgamegeek) is missing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.57.187.76 (talk) 00:00, 16 April 2010 (UTC)


Status of Cybergeneration as Canon[edit]

The carbon plague is explicitly mentioned as part of the 203X timeline under 2020 along with it's attendant side effects of cyberevolution on kids, so it's part of the same core timeline and setting. Just FYI.

Supposed cellphone anachronism[edit]

I took out this sentence "The fictional timeline, trying to depict an early 21st century from a 1980s perspective, contains some anachronisms such as not foreseeing the adoption of cell phones as the preferred mode of communication." This is a reference to William Gibson saying his early books seemed strange because there were no cellphones. However, Cyberpunk 2020 does have cellphones. --Mujokan (talk) 16:59, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Timeline section is problematic[edit]

  • The setting timeline takes way, way, way too much space, is utterly trivial and should not exist in its present form. If reference is to be made to the specific events in the setting timeline, they need to be seriously condensed from the current year-by-year listing. --Agamemnon2 (talk) 19:34, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

San Fransisco[edit]

The image Cyberpunk 2020 Night City.jpg spells San Francisco as "San Fransisco". Is that how the game spells the city, or is there an error in the image? Kaid100 (talk) 14:26, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Cyberpunk 2020 MUDs[edit]

There are several Cyberpunk 2020 MUDs and I would love to see which ones best represent Cyberpunk as an online text game. Lionjim (talk) 02:02, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Cyberpunk Arasaka's Plot (J2ME)[edit]

There was also a J2ME 2D platformer game named Cyberpunk: Arasakas's Plot by Mayhem Studio. All official links on game or studio websites are now dead unfortunately. It was released in 2007 as this[1] page says, and there is no cached version of their old site because it made in Flash.

I added it to the 'Video Game' section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.208.126.122 (talk) 17:37, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
