This web page contains a serious attempt to consolidate the entire future timeline for R. Talsorian Games Cyberpunk into a single document. Elements of this timeline have been published in many of the various sourcebooks and supplements for CP2020, but no single source has existed, until now.

Each event listed in the following timeline has been documented in one or more authorized RTG Cyberpunk sourcebooks or supplements. Reference numbers are given at the end of each event, which correspond with a bibleography provided at the bottom of this web page.

In a very few cases, an event may be listed with NO reference number, and is delineated by blue text. This is due to less-than-rigorous recordkeeping in the early part of this project. If you can provide a definitive reference for any of these events, please contact me immediately, so that the timeline may be updated. I will be sure to credit your help in the "Additional Contributors" list at the end of the timeline.

It should be noted that, in attempting to collate this timeline, a number of discrepancies and contradictions regarding the time for a particular event were discovered. In an attempt to resolve these issues, any event listed in this document represents the most recent mention of the incident, as listed in an official RTG CP2020 sourcebook or supplement. In situations where an event is listed in multiple sources, the source considered to be "more authoritative" (i.e. Deep Space for events occuring in space) was given precedence.

As with any research work, this document should be subject to peer review, and, as such, I welcome comments and, more importantly, CORRECTIONS. If you discover an entry that you feel is in error, please do not hesitate to contact me so that any ambiguities can be resolved in a timely fashion.
