Cyberpunk 2077 Will Get A Release Date At E3, Says Insider

CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 will be getting a release date at this year’s E3, claims an industry insider.

The supposed news comes from a NeoGAF user by the name of Braldryr [via SpielTimes] who spilled a lot of beans in a huge Microsoft infodump.

Braldryr separated the gossip into six categories: What is Going to Happen, What Has a High Chance of Happening, What Has a Small Possibility of Happening, Approached/Being Purchased, Not Happening and Rumoured. 

A release date for Cyberpunk 2077 to be announced at E3 2019 was in the “What is Going to Happen” category.

As a means of ‘proving’ their place in the gaming world, Braldryr then offered up a series of images which showed a huge array of business cards apparently given to them by the likes of CD Projekt Red to Rare to Naughty Dog to Epic Games.

The user also posted evidence of their attendance at last year’s E3 in the form of their access bands.

Of course, this isn’t exactly proof that the information is true, but it definitely makes it look a lot more likely…

Earlier this year, CD Projekt President Adam Kiciński let slip a few clues about Cyberpunk, during a conference call for investors. He said the company is “very much excited” by players’ reception of the game.

He also said that what’s complete at the moment has met the developer’s expectations, and that the game’s marketing campaign has so far been “very promising,” though there’s still a lot to come.

Kiciński also strongly hinted that Cyberpunk fans aren’t going to want to miss out on E3 this year, as it’s set to be the “most important ever” for CD Projekt Red, with a “strong show” in the works – apparently “even stronger than the last one.”

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a release date to me!

E3 2019 kicks off Tuesday June 11.
