Developer CD Projekt Red has received a lot praise these last few years thanks to their highly acclaimed Witcher series and especially this year, with many seeing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as the best game of 2015. But despite the fact that the Polish studio managed to put together one of the best RPG series of all time, a lot of people are anxious to see what else they can bring to the table. As it happens, CD Projekt announced a brand new title called Cyberpunk 2077 a few years back, but weren’t too big on the details back then and we didn’t hear anything major since either. Until now.
This is technically only a rumor so take it for what it is, but word on the street is that Cyberpunk 2077 should be coming out sometime during late 2016. The information comes courtesy of Gamereactor Germany, a website that seems to have some pretty good connections as it is citing a source that is apparently close to CD Projekt Red and knows what’s going on. As it’s often the case with things like this, the source has remained anonymous so it’s pretty hard to confirm if there is any truth behind this rumor. The source also says that CD Projekt is currently working on the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077, however, the game is likely to appear on consoles as well.
The Polish studio itself continues to be awfully quiet, but one can only assume that some sort of progress was surely made since the game was first announced back in 2012. The last official word from CD Projekt Red is that Cyberpunk 2077 will be “far, far bigger” than any of the studio’s previous games, including the Witcher 3, which is pretty huge in its own right. Could such a huge game be ready by late 2016? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
