Expect the news around Cyberpunk 2077 to pick up steam the closer we get to its November release. It turns out that we're actually getting two Night City Wire streams from CD Projekt Red this month: one at Tokyo Game Show Online on September 26, and another just-announced show coming next week.
For the upcoming show, which starts at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT on Friday, September 18, CD Projekt Red promises a three-part presentation. First, we'll be getting "a tour around Night City," which hopefully means more gameplay footage from a near-final build of the game.
Then, we'll get a rundown of Night City's numerous gangs. Longtime fans of the tabletop RPG will surely be curious to see how CD Projekt Red has interpreted some of Mike Pondsmith's ideas about Night City's criminal organizations, but eagle-eyed folks who've been following 2077's development may also want to be on the lookout and changes or new details (after all, we got our first glimpse of CD Projekt Red's take on things back in 2013).
Finally, the first Night City Wire of the month will close out with another look at the music of Cyberpunk 2077. The last show included an interview with Refused, the Swedish punk band that's writing songs as SAMURAI, the "chrome rock" act headed by Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand, but this next show will spotlight the creation of the game's original score.
Cyberpunk 2077's November 19 launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One is fast approaching. In fact, by that time the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be out in the wild—remember, Cyberpunk 2077 has a free upgrade system in place for both Microsoft and Sony's current-gen systems, which will see the release of a day-one visual upgrade followed by a "more robust update" for next-gen later on.
