With Cyberpunk 2077 Coming, Developer CD Projekt Red Listed As E3 2018 Attendee
CD Projekt Red is listed as one of the "participating companies" for this year's big gaming show.
CD Projekt Red, the beloved Polish studio behind The Witcher, Gwent, and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, appears to be attending E3 2018 in some capacity. The E3 website was updated with a slide that lists off "Participating Companies," and among them is CD Projekt Red. Konami, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sega, Sony, Square Enix, and Take-Two are also on the list, among others.
CD Projekt Red attending one of the year's biggest gaming events is not a surprise. The studio has been there in past years, to promote titles--such as Gwent at E3 2016--speak to journalists, and hold business meetings. The studio has not made any announcements as of yet regarding what it might have in store for E3 2018, but needless to say, we are excited about the prospect of some news or footage of Cyberpunk 2077.
We have contacted CD Projekt Red to ask about the company's inclusion in the "Participating Companies" slide. We'll report back with anything we learn. E3 2018 runs June 12-14 in Los Anegeles.
In January, the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account came alive for the first time in four years, leading some to believe that news about the much-anticipated game might be coming soon. The game was initially announced in 2012, with a teaser trailer debuting the next year. This is all to say, it's been a long wait for any news or update on the game's development.
In addition to Cyberpunk 2077 and the continued support of Gwent, CD Projekt Red plans to release another AAA RPG in the 2017-2021 window. If you thought CD Projekt Red was tight-lipped about Cyberpunk 2077, the studio has said absolutely nothing about this other game.
As for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has said it will offer a nonlinear story designed for "mature" players and is set in the metropolis of Night City. It will also have sandbox elements and some form of multiplayer, though CD Projekt Red said the game is a "true RPG," and definitely not a multiplayer shooter.
Although platforms for Cyberpunk 2077 have not yet been announced, the studio has said it will "probably" come to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. While you wait for news about Cyberpunk 2077, you can check out GameSpot's new feature, "Why Cyberpunk 2077 Is So Important To The Genre And Modern Society."
