Cyberpunk 2077 Could Come out in 2019 Based on Deleted Tweet

Witcher 3's Turkish publisher says what now?

Bilkom, a Turkish video game publisher that worked with CD Projekt Red to release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in Turkey, tweeted and then deleted a tweet that suggested Cyberpunk 2077 was going to come out in 2019.

The tweet, which was captured by VG247 Turkey, was posted last week before getting deleted. According to a Google translation the message seemed to suggest that the new Cyberpunk 2077 RPG was going to come out in 2019.

Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't have an official release date, or even a release year. Due to the sophistication of the Cyberpunk 2077 reveal and demo there were even rumors that the game was set for next-gen consoles.

However, there are rumors that suggest Cyberpunk 2077 could be out sooner than you think. CD Projekt Red stated that it's aiming for current-gen and that Cyberpunk 2077 should look as good on PS4 as it does on PC.

Of course, with a game of this scope, delays do happen. Just look at Red Dead Redemption 2. So even if CD Projekt Red is targeting a 2019 release, that's by no means a guarantee. But if work on the project is as far along as suggested, then even a delay might not push the game so far off into the horizon.
