CD Projekt Red announced it was working on Cyberpunk 2077 almost six years ago. Now, at last, there are signs that the game is nearing some outwardly visible development milestones. There are rumours, emanating from multiple sources, that the game will have a playable demo / trailer at E3 later this year.

Last week the official Twitter account published its first Tweet in four years, a solitary beep, as if mimicking a life support machine. Despite the Tweet's brevity, it has proved to be rather popular, gathering nearly 4,000 comments, 18,000 retweets, and 50,000 likes. After leaving the account dormant for so long, obviously something is afoot.

A Polish gaming site by the name of GRY-Online, via PCGamer, reports that a new trailer for the game will be shown at E3 2018, in June. The trailer will be playable, says the source, however only industry insiders and journalists will be able to indulge. GRY-Online says it got wind of the playable demo news via two independent sources.

Taking the two above news morsels together, we can at least expect CDPR to step up promotional activity for Cyberpunk 2077 as the year rolls along. Certainly it has reanimated its Twitter account for a purpose.

The last official word we had about Cyberpunk 2077 development was in November last year. CDPR spoke out to deny that the upcoming game would use a 'games as a service' model. Its strong rebuffal was as follows: "Worry not. When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others."

So the 2077 in the title is actually the release date then! ;-)
I'm strangely in two minds about cyberpunk, CD Projekt Red is one of the few developers/publishers I'd trust to make it, but at the same time I'm worried.

I'm talking from a pure world/story view point here, and too many companies have really botched “cyberpunk” stories recently.
I am looking forward to this - but I really hope the combat system actually is more tuned to keyboard and mouse. Its one thing I didn't like about W3(especially if you played a game like Chivalry),as it involved spinning around like something out of Couching Tiger,Hidden Dragon,ie,great for console controllers.

I assume you have heard of this series being made by Netflix:

I was talking about games not books, all too often games fall into good vs evil tropes, which don't belong in cyberpunk stories.
