CD Projekt RED has teased a game reveal for E3 this year. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer has said the eagerly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 will be a no show at the LA event, admitting there’s still a long way to go, but the studio will instead be showcasing an entirely new game,
“It might happen that we will be at E3 and we will show something at E3, but I just want to make it clear it’s not Cyberpunk,” CDPR founder Marcin Iwinksi said. “We still have a lot of work to do with Cyberpunk.
"When you release a game like The Witcher and create the expansions, the perception is not the pre-Witcher 3 expectation. The bar is higher - and it's externally and internally as well."
From the sounds of things we could have quite a hefty wait on our hands for Cyberpunk 2077 then. At the moment even 2017 is sounding a little optimistic, so don’t be surprised to see it slip into 2018. At the very least it does look as if CDPR has set itself the herculean task of besting the mighty Witcher 3, which would be quite an accomplishment by any studio’s standards.
In the meantime it does mean we have something to look forward to from the Polish developers in the next two or three weeks. Previous chatter from CDPR has suggested its unannounced project is quite unlike just about any game out there, admitting it’s "a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio." Quite what that means is anybody’s guess.
If you're thirsting for more CDPR goodness, The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine is out in matter of days, launching on May 30th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
