While it can often feel like we’ll be old and grey by the time we can actually get our wrinkled mitts on Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED has revealed the studio has hit quite an impressive development milestone recently. The entirety of Cyberpunk 2077 is now playable from start to finish.

Now, I’m no game development expert, but that certainly sounds like fantastic progress. CDPR has been in development Cyberpunk 2077 for about six or so years. It’s been a long road to get to this point but now the final pieces are beginning to slot into place.

“The entire game is playable from start to finish. It doesn't have all of the proper assets, playtesting or bug fixes in place, but seeing the story come together is a critical step in the development process,” said Cyberpunk 2077 producer Richard Borzymowski, in an interview with Engadget.

For long-standing CD Projekt RED fans, it’s exciting stuff. While perhaps a little optimistic, a 2019 launch for Cyberpunk 2077 is no longer unthinkable, although 2020 is probably the safer bet.

In the months since the behind-the-scenes E3 2018 showcase, CDPR has been busy tweaking the game. The demo shown off at Gamescom is largely identical, save for one or two neat new additions. There’s now a katana melee weapon equipped with a magnetic shield that can be used to deflect bullets. Towards the end of the demo was there also a tease for our first peek at Night City at, well, night time. That's the Blade Runner-type cityscape we've always imagined for Cyberpunk 2077, and it appears CDPR is edging ever closer to showing us.

Aside from the development news though, CD Projekt RED has also released a small batch of new screenshots for Cyberpunk 2077. They're pretty straightforward, packed with body modding and cool-ass pistols. 

If you're wondering who the chap is who slipped with his beard trimmer, that's Jackie Welles, one of Cyberpunk 2077's many NPCs.

When do you reckon Cyberpunk is going to be ready to launch? Will CD Projekt RED manage to hit 2019? Let us know!

I don't mind waiting until 2021 if it's needed to make the game at its very best state. My only concern is just the FPP and how reliable is my 1070 to play this game at 1440p when it's out. FPP is what concerns me most, though.

yeah its finally happening ;D
I think 2060 will surely handle this game nicely at high/ultra on 1080p...
I m gonna get that card as soon as it gonna release, or may be get used 980 or 980ti.
Can't wait to spend 200+ hrs in this game.

I didn't think so. The game being playable is a pretty big step in it's development cycle and it's good news. While much earlier in the cycle, a game becoming fully playable is every bit as important and news worthy as a game going gold.

I knew what you meant by reading the article, but when glanced upon the title it seemed more that the game is playable for the public right now. I just awoke when I read this so understand my confusion :)

Lol I'd love to put a bet right now on that? I bet if it comes out two years from now, it will still be their best selling game ever, and outsell the Witcher 3.

Now the question is how long is that waiting period? Star Citizen comes to mind -> talk about a waiting period + all the controversy & shady microtransactions, yet people are still looking forward it

Cyberpunk 2077 and Star Citizen are so different that it's not even funny. One of them is being made by CDPR, a studio that is dedicated to making awesome game and protecting it's customers, and the other is a giant cash grab that has more in common with a Ponzi scheme than a game.

Just keep in mind the 15 year wait for Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy. Once those ads hit he air, and YouTube, the hype is gonna override everything else and people are going to stop caring how long it took to make and just buy it.

Weird as


Slight Spoiler Warining!!


in the Story She once said that she visited worlds and one of the world she said was where people have metal in there Heads and waged Wars form afar and everyone had a metal horse cant remember what she said perfectly
but it was clearly that she was in cyberpunk world and when Gerald said why u didnt stay there she said the wild hunt would have found me in that world


this made me think that cyberpunk could have her and maybe few side missions where u meet

Adam Badowski, the director of Cyberpunk 2077 had this to say about that, "We are not Kingdom Hearts. We are not joining universes, and I know that there are a lot of fans on the team and they would like to have Ciri in the game. But I am totally against it, still." The CEO, Marcin Iwinski, did seem all for it, and even said he might change his mind. Who knows?

Or 07/07/20, if they want to match the title and make a little nod to the original RPG. But I'm really hoping it's some time next year.

My 'will' (noun) will include a clause which states my grandchild can inherit my money if (and only if) a portion of it is used to pre-order Cyberpunk 2077, and (legally) obtain ALL future DLCs to support CDPR XD

Apparently for the E3 demo they were using GTX 1080ti and it ran fine.

The E3 demo was played at 4k / 30fps with a 1080Ti... It's a great result for a game that is still in development.

4K/30 wouldn't satisfy me. I don't tend to aim for lower than 90fps in games, be it 1440p, 4K or 5K.

Witcher 3 was a very long game, while also being massive. So I'd stay optimistic.
