Original Story: Now that we are moving towards 2016 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has had all its deserved success, all eyes are on CD Projekt Red’s other project. Cyberpunk 2077 was announced way back in 2012 way before The Witcher 3 was released onto the world, and will be the companies next major title.
With expectations high for the game, one of the most anticipated announcements has to be the release date. It appears that Gamereactor Germany and “sources” close to CD Projekt Red believe the game will be released at the end of 2016.
This does seem like a believable date, especially since the game has been in development for so long. As we know from The Witcher 3 though, delays can happen. Also the fact that there has been no official release date announcement means that this should be treated as a rumour for now. What we may find is that an announcement comes at next year’s E3. It is safe to assume that we’ll be hearing some details about the game during 2016.
Another interesting thing to note about the game is the fact that it is only officially announced for the PC. It would be a surprise if this stays the case, especially after The Witcher 3 success. I’m sure we’ll be getting news of an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release soon too.
With the level of speculation surrounding the game, it is clear that there is a lot of anticipation for this release. I’m sure that there are many fans (including me) hoping that The Witcher 3 has influenced the development of the game, and that Cyberpunk 2077 will be an even more impressive experience. If it is coming in 2016, this could be one of the biggest games of the year.
