After lying dormant since 2013, CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 has tweeted out a single, hype-inducing message.
Now, hype does get much flakier than this, as the Tweet is just a single word - “beep”. It’s enough for us to know that Cyberpunk 2077 is alive and kicking though and that CDPR is gearing up to talk about its ridiculously anticipated new open-world sci-fi RPG for the first time in years.
Details on Cyberpunk 2077 are still remarkably scarce, with little emerging from CDPR since the game's announcement in 2012. Since then, CD Projekt released The Witcher 3, one of the most highest regarded RPGs of all time.
Leaks so far have indicated a gigantic open world populated with planes, bikes and rideable robots. There may also be some form of an online component, although CD Projekt RED has confirmed the entire game will playable in single-player.
Last but not least, CDPR CEO Marcin Iwiński said in May 2017 that the Polish developer would be aiming for an element of surprise in terms of Cyberpunk 2077's marketing campaign. “The promotional campaign (for Cyberpunk 2077) is already planned,” he said. "Its main element is the surprise, so I cannot even say when it will begin. Simply because it has to come as a surprise.”
What do you reckon then, could 2018 finally be the year of Cyberpunk? Or is CDPR just messing with our hearts?
