CD Projekt RED intends to delve into the lore of Cyberpunk 2077 in a documentary video series called "Night City Archives", recounting the history of the city-state where the game is set. The first video, "A Brief History of Night City", traces the construction and evolution of the city, which serves as a symbol of the game.

At the end of the 20th century, the world found itself in a state of collapse, with natural disasters, armed conflicts, and nuclear explosions leading to the deaths of millions.

In the USA, a secret group called the "Gang of Four" secretly divided power among the ANB, CIA, FBI, and DEA groups. However, attempts to manipulate the market by secretly influencing securities on the stock exchange did not yield the desired results, and the economy collapsed.

In the chaos that followed these events, wealthy industrialist Richard Night had the idea to build a self-sufficient city of the future that could sustain itself independently of the central government. Thus, Night City was born, and what happened next can be seen in the video.

CD Projekt RED will release at least 2 more videos in which they will talk about the conflicts that divided the New United States of America and the emergence of Dogtown from the Phantom Liberty expansion.

Likely, "Night City Archives" are meant to draw attention to the upcoming release of the ultimate edition of Cyberpunk 2077, which will be available for sale on December 5th.
