Polish developer CD Projekt Red has begun outlining its Cyberpunk 2077 plans for E3 2019. Unfortunately, the hugely anticipated upcoming RPG won't be playable during the show, but it will be on display for all to see. No exclusive closed-door presentations this year; even the public will be able to see everything new CD Projekt Red is bringing to E3.
"To answer many questions about the demo and whether or not [Cyberpunk 2077] will be playable at E3--we are going to be hosting gameplay presentations (game played by us) in that cinema," CD Projekt Red global community lead Marcin Momot wrote in a tweet. In a follow-up tweet, he clarified that "these showings will be different" from what's been seen before, but that he won't "go into details now" about what fans can expect.
CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński seems excited to show off what the studio has planned for E3. In a blog post, Kiciński said, "We will be taking part in the upcoming edition of E3, which is shaping up to be the most important fair in CD Projekt's history. We want to be even more prominent in Los Angeles than we were last year."
Ahead of the release of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red opened an online retail store. The shop sells merchandise themed after the developer's latest titles, such as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Cyberpunk 2077 items are live on the store as well.
Though it was initially teased back in 2013, it took years for CD Projekt Red to reveal anything concrete about Cyberpunk 2077. We finally got our first good look in 2018. The nearly hour-long demo showcased Cyberpunk 2077's interactive open world, as well as the game's mission structure, character customization, choice-driven narrative, boss battles, and high-tech weapons.
CD Projekt Red has yet to reveal what exactly it will showcase at E3 this year, but we're hoping a release date is announced. The developer might also reveal what contribution Digital Scapes--a well-known multiplayer-focused studio hired by CD Projekt Red to work on Cyberpunk 2077--has contributed to the game.
