Cyberpunk 2077 Won't Be Hands-on At E3, But CD Projekt Says It May Be "Most Important" Showing in the Studio's History

Cyberpunk 2077 Won't Be Hands-on At E3, But CD Projekt Says It May Be "Most Important" Showing in the Studio's History

You'll have to wait your turn a little while longer.

Cyberpunk 2077 is easily one of the most anticipated games going into this year's E3. But those attending won't get to get their hands on CD Projekt Red's futuristic tech dystopia just yet.

Marcin Momot, global community lead for developer CD Projekt Red, says the studio will be hosting gameplay presentations played by members of the studio, both in public and behind closed doors.

In a follow-up tweet, Momot says he won't go into details but these two showings "will be different." The follow-up to CDPR's massive hit, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt reiterated the importance of this year's E3 in a blog post following their quarterly financial report.

"We will be taking part in the upcoming edition of E3, which is shaping up to be the most important fair in CD Projekt’s history," says Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt. "We want to be even more prominent in Los Angeles than we were last year."

Though it's another massive game, CD Projekt Red's lead cinematic animator says Cyberpunk 2077 won't be hindered my current-gen hardware. But Kiciński also mentioned in March that the game could end up being cross-gen, bridging the gap between current consoles and the next step.
