Cyberpunk 2077 trailer teases Witcher 3 announcement?
Reddit users say they have unveiled a secret message in the new trailer for CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG which talks of a soon-to-be-announced "fully open-world game with an intense story."
It appears that Polish developer CD Projekt Red wanted to give fans a little more than they bargained for with the release of the new trailer for the studio's upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
According to some Reddit users, a frame at the end of the trailer contains a hidden message from the developer.
In the message, which has been decoded on Reddit, CD Projekt Red reportedly says Cyberpunk 2077 is currently scheduled for release in 2015 but will more likely come out "when it's done."
The message also speaks of a new project which is "much closer to being completed" and which will reportedly be announced on February 5.

"We are about to reveal our other project which is much closer to being completed and yes, it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we're talking about. On the 5th of February it will all be clear."
This led some Reddit users to speculate that CD Projekt Red is gearing up to announce The Witcher 3. The message also calls for applications to join the in-house development team and describes more details about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077:
"The short description is that it will be a story-heavy, nonlinear, open world RPG based on the well-known Cyberpunk pen and paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now and we believe that properly joining non-linear gameplay with an excellent story telling will bring a totally new quality. We'll tell some more about it soon!"
The message ends with a description of a reportedly newly created forum titled Afterlife, inviting users to join.
Cyberpunk 2077 puts players into a "dark future" in 2077 where advanced technologies have become "both the salvation and the curse of humanity." The game promises a nonlinear story designed for "mature" players and is set in the metropolis of Night City. It was also revealed today that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature sandbox elements.
