Welcome to September, everyone. With summertime nearly behind us and a holiday season marked by new games and consoles not far ahead, we're in the home stretch of big gaming teases and announcements for 2020. Soon, every big game launching in the November sweet spot will make its last big push to wow us, and in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, that may come as part of Tokyo Game Show Online.
As part of the digital event, CD Projekt Red will be hosting another of its Night City Wire streams on September 26. For those of us in the US, that'll mean logging on late the night before, as the stream will premiere at 10 p.m. PT on September 25 / 1 a.m. ET September 26.
June's first Night City Wire, which premiered shortly after Cyberpunk was pushed out of September by a second delay, was pretty packed with information about the ambitious RPG. CD Projekt Red debuted a new trailer, we were treated to a lot of new gameplay footage (along with hands-on impressions from a handful of folks), and we even saw the announcement of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, a tie-in anime coming to Netflix in 2022.
Last month's second Night City Wire episode went a bit deeper on the different life paths players can choose from during character creation, which drastically alter the early game missions. We also got a good look at Cyberpunk's array of weapons and a peek at the real-life band behind the SAMURAI, the rock group fronted by Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reeves's character, in case you forgot).
Cyberpunk 2077 will be out for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 19. It will also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X when those consoles launch, though it'll be a while before both systems receive proper, "more robust" next-gen console upgrades.
