You thought Cyberpunk was all about the year 2077? Wrong! Disjunction whisks us off to 2048, a time when New York is falling apart, drugs are rife and the city is on the verge of utter collapse. Yep, this cyberpunk affair is a whole load of different to CD Projekt Red’s blockbuster, but it offers up a very similar idea.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC, Disjunction comes from those at Sold Out and Ape Tribe Games. A cyberpunky tech-noir inspired sci-fi stealth action RPG (that’s a ton of bases covered), Disjunction will have you wandering the mean streets of a 2048 New York, as you work the lives of three everyday citizens.
It is up to you to help these guys uncover the conspiracy that is threatening the city as a whole, taking in a narrative that merges the three. With many options available – not least in terms of weaponry and upgrades – and a story that reacts as you dictate, should you be a fan of the setting, need a new future world fix, or are just looking for something to fill the time as you move forward, Disjunction looks set to deliver it.
- Unique Stealth-action Mechanics
- Stylized pixel art environments and characters
- A Reactive Story with Real Consequences
- Lethal High-octane Combat
- Futuristic Upgrade & Talent Trees
- A Dystopian Cyberpunk New York City
Our full review of Disjunction on Xbox Series X is up, live and ready for your perusal. We very much like it too – although that’s as far as the spoilers go. You’ll have to read it for yourself in order to discover the finer details.

2048. Following the arrest of a prominent community leader, New York stands in disarray. Suspicions and allegations run rife throughout the city, as an insidious drug known as ‘Shard’ spreads throughout the underworld. With the city’s future in doubt, three hardened citizens rise to discover the truth and uncover a conspiracy threatening to alter the city’s fate. Inspired by tech noir classics, Disjunction is an intensely atmospheric stealth-action RPG that follows a trinity of interwoven narratives, and features a reactive story where your actions have real, persistent consequences. Choose your playstyle and use an arsenal of futuristic tech, cybernetic upgrades and weapons to blast through levels in brutally fast combat, or take a silent approach by using stealth and non-lethal takedowns to leave without a trace. Nobody needs to die… unless you decide they must.
