It's been a long wait for more Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab) since its big debut and your patience will soon pay off. Developer CD Projekt Red confirmed on Twitter that its upcoming sci-fi RPG be an E3 2019 game (opens in new tab) and there will be several ways to check it out at E3 2019 (opens in new tab). That includes a presentation on the show floor for folks heading to E3 in person, as studio head Adam Badowski revealed.
Hyped to share with you that we’ll be present in the public zone at E3 2019, too! #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/bT2d7mA3QCMay 23, 2019
Last year's extended demonstration of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay was strictly behind closed doors, though CD Projekt Red did eventually share a full playthrough of the same material in pre-recorded video form (opens in new tab). Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a while longer to play the game yourself. CDPR community lead Marcin Momot confirmed that all E3 2019 demonstrations will be hands-off.
To answer many questions about the demo and whether or not @CyberpunkGame will be playable at E3 -- we are going to be hosting gameplay presentations (game played by us) in that cinema.May 23, 2019
Going another E3 with no one outside CDPR putting their hands on Cyberpunk is disappointing; if the game comes out in early 2020 like I estimated a while ago (opens in new tab), that would make this its last pre-release E3, and the game's publisher has confirmed that it will be out by 2021 at the latest (opens in new tab).
Momot followed up with confirmation that the presentations CDPR gives on the show floor and in private will be different. That could mean the private one will be an altered or extended version of the public one, but I'm going to hope they'll be two unique scenarios so we can take in twice as much new material this year.
Won't go into details now but these showings will be different.May 23, 2019
