CD Projekt Red Appears to be Taking the Wraps Off Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red Appears to be Taking the Wraps Off Cyberpunk 2077

Beep boop, fleshling. CD Projekt Red is ready to entertain you again.

No doubt you're going into this year's E3 with lofty expectations for Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft. You probably have a checklist of everything you want to see out of the three companies, even though you're likely going to wind up disappointed. If the Big Three let you down hard, keep your chin up because it looks like CD Projekt Red is on-track to show off its upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.

Let's stop and emphasize "looks like," here. Cyberpunk's E3 2018 appearance is purely speculation based on a listing made on E3's website. According to the listing, CD Projekt Red is showing off a role-playing game for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. While we think it's safe to assume the RPG referenced in the listing is Cyberpunk, the project isn't called out by name. For all we know, CD Projekt Red is getting ready to show us The Witcher 4. Heck. You just never know.

"Hi, are you a Smash Bros Switch kiosk?"

All right, let's stop fooling around. It's got to be Cyberpunk. CD Projekt Red's been building up hype for the game since it made its twitter account say "Beep" in January. CD Projekt Red also recently opened a new studio to help with Cyberpunk development and in January, a popular Polish game site reported we'll indeed be seeing Cyberpunk at E3 2018.

We'll be at E3 (count on it), so be assured we'll deliver all the Cyberpunk news that's fit to report. Unless this "mystery" RPG does turn out to be The Witcher 4, in which case we'll still report it—after we die of shock and delight, then resurrect.
