A new video for Cyberpunk 2077 has dropped in conjunction with PlayStation, of all places. Creating Cyberpunk 2077 is an update from CD Projekt RED on how development on the first-person sci-fi RPG is progressing. And look, it’s not much, but info on Cyberpunk 2077 is so hard to come by these days that we’re all over this like a pack of ravenous hyenas.
There may be a smidgen of new gameplay in here, although much of it seems to be footage taken from the extensive 45-minute gameplay demo released for Gamescom 2018. CDPR do touch on a few interesting topics though, including what the studio’s been doing all this time, why they opted for first-person, and what their overall vision is for Cyberpunk 2077.
The kicker at the end sank our spirits somewhat though. “Cyberpunk 2077 may no longer be the mystery it once was, but work on it is far from over," says the distinctly Geralt-sounding narrator. “True to promise made in 2013, it’s still coming when it's ready." Give me a moment while a wail into the abyss.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming when it’s done then, which we’re optimistically hoping is 2020. CD Projekt RED is still claiming Cyberpunk is coming to PS4 and Xbox One alongside PC, but this is a game with next-gen written all over it.
