Rumor: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be Shown at E3 2018 With New Trailer, Playable Behind Closed Doors

A new rumor has fans of CD Projekt RED’s latest RPG opus Cyberpunk 2077 losing their minds.

The rumor, via GRYOnline (the largest Polish gaming website), cites two different sources that separately confirmed the game will be present at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo with a demo, and that it will be playable behind closed doors.

While this is still a rumor, it’s worth pointing out the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account tweeted for the first time in over three years a few days ago – could this be an indication the game will finally be shown off more properly this year?

We still don’t know too much about the game, however state grants for “seamless multiplayer” and a “huge living city” combined with the development team eclipsing that of The Witcher 3 have us already expecting it to be a massive title.

In related news, CD Projekt RED promised that “you get what you pay for” with Cyberpunk 2077, adding that the game will have “no bullshit” and “no hidden catch,” news confirmed after an interview with company CEO Adam Kiciński saw opportunists misconstrue his words.

We’ll keep you guys posted.

    With their recent beeps CDPR may reveal this game, but I don’t think we’re getting it any time soon. Just as a reminder the Witcher 3 appeared at 3 E3 shows before finally being released and I think the case will similar with Cyberpunk 2077.

  • Madbrainbox

    It’s been so long I can feel no enthusiasm for this at this point.At this rate we’re lucky if we get to play it in 2020.

  • 2501

    I find that hard to believe when nothing at all has been revealed about this game’s progress, or it’s existence for that matter. At least Star Citizen actually showed something.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    gameplay behind closed door is a MASSIVE red flagg

    why does it have to be behind closed doors?
    we alrready know the kind of antigamer (((SJournoWs))) that are usually allowed behind said doors

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I really hope the radio silence for this is that they can do a Bethesda and release it soon after the announcement but I’ll keep expectations in check.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It would be a fitting release year for a Cyberpunk game at least.

  • reblinds

    expectations are another shitty WRPG where you follow the dotted line, just like witcher 3 was. I imagine the mechanics will be half baked, poorly implemented, and missing basic game design elements like the witcher 3 did.

    it’ll also have weird microstuttering even on threadripper with a titan.

  • Madbrainbox

    Of course.The alternative may not be an option.Although I’d play it even when I’m 90.

  • Sir Sog Muffin

    I honestly think they fucked up by announcing the game so early. I’m still excited but giving us literally nothing for so long is a very poor strategy

  • Sir Sog Muffin

    Plus “behind closed doors” is fucking stupid given how little people even value the opinion of the modern day games journalist.

  • McSuperNigger

    this is in development hell and will end up a buggy mess

  • ProfessorFluffy

    The game is actually just called Cyberpunk, 2077 is the release date.

  • SevTheBear

    Sounds like we are gonna see 2019-20. Look on the bright side, it ain’t SC with ZERO release date in sight

  • SevTheBear

    My guess will be that they aim for a 2019 or 2020.

  • Madbrainbox


  • SevTheBear

    Star Citizen

  • SLoWMoTIoN🐍

    TBF their games aren’t known for having good gameplay whatsoever. If anything it is about lore or something…tits?

  • Madbrainbox

    I’m happy I never got hyped for that one.

  • Brandon Shorter

    There will probably be some controversy and SJWs ripping it apart for some reason probably boobs.

  • JohnCReally

    LOL Witcher 3 being a shitty game. Lemme guess, you think TES is a great series?

  • reblinds

    no, they’re both bad

  • reblinds

    there will also probably be some counter-effort where idiots just buy a bad game to own sjws on the internet.

  • JohnCReally

    Your taste is bad.

  • reblinds

    sure thing skyrim with sephiroth knockoffs fan
