The Witcher 3 was kind of a big deal. So when the game’s developer, CD Projekt Red, gets outed as having a game coming to E3, people take notice. Especially when that game, undoubtedly Cyberpunk 2077, has been six years in the making.
The news comes courtesy of the official Electronics Entertainment Expo page. The Los Angeles based show cites all of the developers that have been confirmed exhibitors on the floor. And CD Projekt Red is a big name amongst them.
The studio is set to showcase a Role-Playing game for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine DLC rolling out in 2016, there is only one other announced role-playing game left in development at the studio – Cyberpunk 2077.
The Polish development team has stated that they hoped to have the game shipped by 2019. A team of around 50 people began pre-production back in 2012. Since then, CD Projekt Red has amassed a team larger than The Witcher 3 ever saw to complete the ambitious project.
Rumors stemming from a major Polish gaming publication indicate that multiple sources that have detailed the developer’s plans for the show. It’s suggested (in a rough translation) that a trailer will premiere during the E3 festivities with a closed-door demo being offered to press:
“We obtained information about the plan to present the game at the most important industry event independently from two different sources and in both cases we can not disclose where they came from. We immediately reserve that such revelations must always be treated with an appropriate distance. Until CD Projekt RED officially announces that Cyberpunk 2077 will appear at E3, there is absolutely no certainty that this will happen. We strongly believe, however, that the above speculations will be confirmed.”
This June could very well be the final E3 before Cyberpunk 2077 launches. So it makes sense that CD Projekt Red will roll out its highly anticipated RPG here for the world to see. One thing is for sure – we know the developer will be there. Hopefully they are ready and willing to show the world what they’ve got.
