The Game Awards are happening this Thursday and producer/host Geoff Keighley is promising a lot of new world premiere video game reveals. One thing that won't be there is CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 as announced via the studio's community lead.
"We're looking forward to seeing all the reveals and announcements during this year's [The Game Awards], however we're not going to be showing anything there ourselves," writes CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot. "We'll sheare more details about [Cyberpunk 2077] when we're ready."

This is the second high-profie denial for a Game Awards reveal following Rocksteady's announcement that there will be no new project reveal at the awards. Though the studio did reveal it wasn't a Superman game.
As for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red first unveiled the game at E3 this year before releasing a 30-minute gameplay video back in August. Since then CD Projekt has been presumably hard at work on its sci-fi RPG and will likely march at the beat of its own production drum.
Though some people will likely be disappointed to find there will not be any new Cyberpunk info this week, perhaps by skipping pre-determined event dates CD Projekt can instead make bigger reveals on its own time.
