CDPR: Cyberpunk 2077’s Development Is "Proceeding At Full Speed"

Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Have A Playable Demo at E3 2019

Cyberpunk 2077 won't have a public playable demo at E3 2019 but it will have gameplay presentations

Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that a lot of PC gamers are looking forward to.

As for what else is planned for CD Projekt RED at E3 2019, there's a rumor going around that the Cyberpunk 2077 release date will be announced during the Microsoft keynote on Sunday, June 9, but if the works of writers like Philip K. Dick and William Gibson have taught us anything, it's that you never believe something until it's verified. However, CD Projekt RED has said it aims to launch the sci-fi experience and another unannounced AAA title by the year 2021. In short, we will be getting new gameplay footage but attendees won't be able to get hands-on with the game themselves.

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.

"Top-notch development quality along with further effective marketing activities surrounding the release of Cyberpunk 2077, PR activities, hype building and involvement in fostering a strong gamer community will all significantly affect the market performance of the upcoming product", CD Projekt Red writes in their financial statement of Q1 2019. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a while longer to play the game yourself. The game looked incredibly impressive from the carefully controlled section we were shown, but we didn't get to try it out ourselves and see how much of that was smoke and mirrors.

That's backed up by a statement from quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, who said last month that Cyberpunk 2077 is "pretty different" to what CDPR showed off previous year. I'm not expecting another hour-long showcase this time around but hopefully we'll get to see a bit more of the open-world and some of the other changes made in the previous year.
