Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be at E3 2019

Twitter is such a wonderful thing, isn’t it? Early Thursday morning on the social media platform, an official announcement was made confirming that Cyberpunk 2077 would show up at E3 2019.

 

 

This comes as the first game publicly confirmed to “be at E3” so far. While E3 technically takes place June 11-13, it has been a long-standing tradition for large gaming companies like Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Bethesda, Square Enix, and PC Gamer to host their biggest conferences the weekend before the expo. Sony already announced back in November that PlayStation will not have a booth on the E3 show floor or a press conference for the first time since the expo began in 1995. This has been the only other confirmation of any kind in regards to the matter.

 

Now that CD PROJEKT RED has announced the presence of its newest IP at the event, questions still loom as to what extent it will present itself. Will we get a playable demo on the show floor? Are we in for another trailer? More gameplay in addition to the 48 minutes we received in August? Is there a release date coming our way? While CD PROJEKT RED is likely to stay hushed about these details to build anticipation, we do know that the developer has expressed their desire to let the game take whatever time it needs. They have no interest in rushing the game or even giving us a release date until they feel comfortable with their progress on development.

 

Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay

 

We still know very little about the game and what to expect, but the studio has offered up some details in the past. It’s set in Night City, a megacity in California, where the main character, V, serves as a hired gun. The city is riddled with homeless people and violence. This has spawned a world in which everybody can openly carry firearms and, subsequently, everyone is a potential threat. The game will feature branching dialogue options, plenty of city life to engage in, and, of course, tons of people to hunt down in exchange for cash. While the game is set up to be a huge departure from CD PROJEKT RED’s famed series The Witcher, we can assume that we will find similarities in the depths of the world, characters, and plot. It’s likely that whatever form Cyberpunk 2077 takes at E3 2019 it will bring further light to the story and gameplay to be expected upon release.

 

With today’s announcement, the gaming community should be on the lookout for additional games that will be at E3. However, let’s hope that plenty is still left up to mystery come June.
