CD Projekt Red's official twitter account for Cyberpunk 2077 just made its first tweet in five years. Hopefully this is a sign that we'll be seeing much more of futuristic follow-up to The Witcher series.
The tweet itself doesn't actually have much in the way of new information.
*beep*— Cyberpunk Game (@CyberpunkGame) January 10, 2018
Fist revealed back in 2013, that's also when communications from Cyberpunk 2077's Twitter account ceased. Presumably because the teaser trailer CD Projekt Red released for the announcement showcased a project still very early in development.
The lone "beep" tweet has already received thousands of retweets and likes, indicating that excitement for the new game is still strong, if not growing after so many years of silence.
While we still don't know much about the game, we know that Cyberpunk 2077 will take place in a setting very much indicated by its title, namely a cyberpunk future as opposed to The Witcher's historical fantasy setting.
CD Projekt Red had several dust-ups surrounding the project. First there was the blackmail attempt made against the studio where hackers ransomed design documents for the game. But seeing as though the documents were outdated, CD Projekt Red refused to pay the ransom.
Secondly was when a the company was hit by a string of negative company reviews over its labor practices. CD Projekt Red issued a response, but didn't necessarily deny the high-intensity work culture that caused some employees to complain about excessive crunch.
We still don't know when we'll see more of Cyberpunk 2077, but hopefully it will be soon. Perhaps E3 2018. Even then, we still don't have a release date or even designated consoles. Basically, Cyberpunk is still a mystery, but at least we know it's beeping.
