I guess the title says it all really?
But i live in Sweden and im in my last year of upper secondary school/high school and we basically have to do a big exam work that is more or less like a papper like in university, and i decided to write about cyberpunk. Because of this i have been thinking of cyberpunk very much lately.
With the release of Blade Runner last year and the netflix series Altered Carbon (based on the cyberpunk book with the same name) that dropped around a month ago we have seen a bit more cyberpunk then usual. There also seems to be a larger number of cyberpunk games around now, such as “The Red Strings Club” and “The Last Night” although these are small games we should also mention that CD Projekt Red (the developers of the witcher series) are working on Cyberpunk 2077.
And as it looks today we are more or less already are living in a cyberpunk dystopia (although much more absurd then what William Gibson perhaps thought, i mean who could have predicted the whole bitcoin spectacle?)
So are we seeing atleast the groundworks for a new wave of cyberpunk? What are your thoughts and predictions on these developments? Am i somewhat right or am i just talking out of my ass right now?
