One of the most anticipated games for E3 was unveiled, when CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 debuted a new, somewhat detailed-hidden, trailer. The next open-world game from the makers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was shown off with a teaser trailer at the end of Microsoft’s E3 conference. The show had seemingly come to a close, only to be “hacked”. The lights dimmed down and the trailer began. The CGI teaser looked promising, but what wasn’t so clear were the details that appeared in the final frames of the trailer. CD Projekt RED had a message for the fans and addressed four big questions in these barely visible frames.
You can see the questions the post answered below, and the entire post here.
Before we finish, you probably have some questions,
When we told you we would only release the game when it’s ready, we meant it. We’re definitely much closer to a release date than we were back then 😉 but it’s still not the time to confirm anything, so patience is still required. Quality is the only thing that drives us. It’s the beauty of being an independent studio and your own publisher.
2. How big?
Seriously big, but… to be honest, we have no bloody clue at this point in time. Once we put it all together, we will openly tell you what you can expect. And we promise we’ll do this before we start talking about pre-orders or ask anything of you.
3. Free DLC/Expansions/DRM
Expect nothing less than you got with The Witcher 3. As for DRM, CP2077, will be 100% DRM-free on PC.
In a single-player role-playing game? Are you nuts?
Once again, thank you for your patience. If you have a minute, do visit cyberpunk.net and share your opinion (about anything) with us. We read everything you posted we treat it very seriously.
Unfortunately, there was no release date or even release window provided for Cyberpunk 2077. The hidden message seemingly guarantees that this won’t be a 2018 game.
Next was the size of the world and they say, “How big? Seriously big, but… to be honest, we have no bloody clue at this point in time.” Them saying that they have “no bloody clue” is another indicator that we won’t be playing Cyberpunk 2077 anytime soon, and also confirms the suspicion that this will be more than likely a Fall or Winter 2019 release.
Finally, possibly the best line in the entire hidden message. The question of whether or not microtransactions would be featured in Cyberpunk 2077 was addressed. CD Projekt RED answered by saying, “Microtransactions? In a single-player role-playing game? Are you nuts?” Did I say possibly the best line in the message, I meant definitely the best line in the entire message.
These pieces of information, while few and limited, have already begun shaping what the expectations are for this potential game of the year contender whenever it releases.
