It’s no secret that at last year’s E3, one of the hottest ticket games was Cyberpunk 2077. After an initial tease during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference, developer CD Projekt Red then took E3 attendees behind closed doors to show them Cyberpunk 2077 in action. And as expected, most of those that saw the presentation were blown away. Eventually, CD Projekt Red released the behind closed door, hands-off Cyberpunk 2077 E3 demo so that all could see what the game has to offer. It was enough to convince many gamers that this was something special, and leave them hankering for more.
Now, almost a year later, CD Projekt Red is gearing up for E3 2019 and has promised to bring new Cyberpunk 2077 content. The excitement surrounding the game is huge this year and even CD Projekt Red knows it, with CFO Piotr Nielubowicz calling this year’s, “The most important E3 fair in CD Projekt’s history.” Although CD Projekt Red has had plenty of successful E3 showings with the Witcher series, this is arguably the developer’s biggest. This year, Cyberpunk 2077 will have a show floor presence in addition to the behind closed door presentation that is typical for CD Projekt Red. It’s not the first time that a CD Projekt game has been on the show floor – The Witcher 3 was part of Warner Bros’ booth back in 2014 – but this is apparently something bigger and different. This is Cyberpunk 2077 taking over its own booth without any publisher partnerships.
While there will be plenty of competition for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s upcoming sci-fi shooter is in position to dominate the conversation surrounding E3 2019 once again. Anticipation has only built since the E3 2018 demo was revealed and many are eager to see what the game looks like a year later. Unfortunately, E3 attendees won’t be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 at the show but CD Projekt Red will be “playing” the game during the game’s live demo. A demo on its own will likely be enough to get Cyberpunk 2077 out there as a Game of the Show contender, but fans are also holding out hope that CDPR might also reveal the game’s release date during the show. That could by why Nielubowicz thinks this year’s event is so crucial, as it sets CDPR on the path towards the release of its next big game. Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date.
