CD Projekt RED’s President and Joint CEO, ADAM KICIŃSKI, has stated that Cyberpunk 2077 promotional campaign is ready and the game’s reveal is going to be a major surprise for the community. They are going to play with the element of surprise for this one.
This may spark speculations that CD Projekt RED may be at E3 2017 with its new game. However, that is unlikely to be the case. Recently, CD Projekt Red hosted its financial results conference for 2016 in which the developer revealed that the development progress on Cyberpunk 2077 is “quite advanced” and the studio needs more time before it is ready.
Furthermore, the company revealed that the studio considers 2017 as the year of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game and will not reveal anything major about Cyberpunk 2077 this year.
According to CD Projekt RED CEO, the promotional campaign is planned and they are waiting for the right moment. He made the statement during a recent conference call.
Rumor has it that the pre-production before 2016 was scrapped which slowed down the development process, however, that report has never been confirmed.
The game has been in development for a long time and will release sometime between 2017-2021. There is another AAA RPG in development alongside Cyberpunk 2077 which puts extra pressure on the development team.
Cyberpunk 2077 tidbits might be shared this year but expect nothing major from the developers any time soon. Cyberpunk is a Sci-fi action RPG in development at CD Projekt Red for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
