The image (at right) depicts a man wielding a futuristic-looking handgun and wearing eyeglasses boasting some sort of computerized heads-up display.

Other details are not available, but gamers won't have to wait long to know what CD Projekt Red is up to. The company will broadcast its annual Summer Conference tomorrow on its Facebook page at 1 p.m. EDT, where the project will be announced in earnest.

Speculation about new projects at CD Projekt Red was sparked earlier this month when job listings at the studio revealed the firm was at work on two new role-playing games, one of which would be an entirely new intellectual property. The other game is to be set in a "mature dark-fantasy world" and may be a follow-up to 2011's much-praised The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
