The Public Still Has Opportunity to Watch New Gameplay Footage
Those who find themselves dizzy with a feverish excitement for the upcoming, highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 may be slightly disappointed. The CD Projekt RED booth at E3 2019 will display gameplay footage but there is no option for any hands-on interactions. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the availability for the public remains limited. CD Projekt has previously confirmed that Cyberpunk will arrive by 2021, which gives them still a two-year window.
This is not to say there isn’t a reason for excitement. CD Projekt president and CEO Adam Kiciński has labeled E3 2019 as “the most important one ever” and has promised the show will be great. Kiciński even hints at a first look at the mysterious project they have been keeping hidden.
CD Projekt Red’s Global Community Lead Marcin Momot was asked on Twitter whether he can “tell us something about the difference between [the] public showing of the game and [the one] behind closed doors”. Momot answers that “He won into details but these showings will be different”. This isn’t really an answer. Merely confirming something inherent in the question. It does suggest that the production team is further along than they are willing to show the public.
This does beg the question as to why? What are they not showing everyone? Will some of it still be buggy? Probably and they don’t want to show an unfinished product. But maybe there are more secrets that they aren’t yet quite ready to share. Maybe footage of Lady Gaga’s rumored character?
