Following rumours from last week, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has now all but confirmed that it will be attending E3 2018 in June. The Polish developer’s director of PR and global communication confirmed the news to GameSpot in a coy statement.
“Yes, we’re on the list – i.e. https://www.e3expo.com/participating-companies. But there is no additional comment on that from us,” the representative said.
Last week it was discovered that the list of “Participating Companies” for E3 2018 included CD Projekt Red. This led some to believe that the studio might have plans to show off or discuss Cyberpunk 2077 in some manner at the big-time gaming show in Los Angeles. Given that it has been years since we’ve heard anything official about the game, people got understandably excited about this development.
However, CD Projekt Red’s name being on the list of “Participating Companies” does not necessarily mean the studio will have any news to share on Cyberpunk 2077 or any of its other games. It could be that CD Projekt Red is attending E3 for the purposes of meeting with business partners or showing things behind closed doors, outside of the public eye.
The studio has yet to confirm any specifics plans for the show, but those details may come into focus in the weeks and months ahead. E3 2018 runs June 12-14, though briefings from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are expected to take place earlier that week.
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. 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. CD Projekt Red was tight-lipped about Cyberpunk 2077, the studio has said absolutely nothing about this other game.
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.”
