CD PROJEKT RED announced today that Swedish punk rock formation Refused will be the sound and voice of Cyberpunk 2077’s SAMURAI.
Creative direction for the game will be provided by CD PROJEKT RED’s composer team, which is led by Marcin Przybyłowicz. Tracks will be heavily inspired by the original source material, but there will also be original tracks created by the band exclusively for the title.
Listen to one of their songs below:
Cyberpunk 2077 — Chippin’ In by SAMURAI (Refused)
According to Marcin Przybyłowicz, Music Director of CD PROJEKT RED:
Dennis Lyxzén, Lead Vocalist of the band Refused, added:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“Like us, SAMURAI is a group of rebels, albeit in a different time and place. Working together with CD PROJEKT RED, writing music and song lyrics for Cyberpunk’s chrome rock icon was fun, but also very different in the creative sense. It was an unexpected challenge that turned out to be right up our alley and really got us going. The songs turned out great and the game looks insane.”[/testimonials]
The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16, 2020.
