Cyberpunk 2077 Teaser Released

CD Projekt Red has finally released a teaser trailer for its futuristic game, Cyberpunk 2077. It’s around two minutes long and most of it is a frozen frame, showing quite the bloody scene, with quite a scantily clad lady causing a stir.

However, that’s not all CD Projekt Red was teasing with this trailer. At the end of the trailer it’s announced that the developers will be showing off something else on February 5th. Users over at NeoGAF have discovered a hidden message within the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser, which first states that Cyberpunk 2077 will most likely come out in 2015. Secondly, there’s the following quote from the hidden message.

“We are about the reveal our other project, which is much closer to being completed, and yes it will be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we’re talking about. On the 5th of February it will be all clear.”

Let’s see, CD Projekt RED’s main series is The Witcher franchise. It’s likely that the third instalment went into production soon after The Witcher 2 released in 2011. So a fully open world Witcher 3 could be announced February 5th. A lot of supposition but not beyond the realms of possibility!

  1. It’s rather pretty and a great art style (Blade Runner’s influence everywhere!). I’d love it if we can push live graphics close to this in a couple years, when this sees release.

    • Reminds me of the quality of the Watch Dogs trailer and Unreal Engine 4 demos

  2. Love the vibe of that! Never heard of it before now but that was great.

  3. CD Projekt Red is a great studio! Love everything about them, great attitude and talented too. Hopefully next gen hardware will be able to keep up with them.

    • You took the words right out of my mouth.

    • Yeah the stuff they produced is very good quality, but until they come up with something truly original, as in not creating a game universe from scratch rather than using one with well-established and pre-existing source material, I’m going to hang back from giving them too many plaudits.

      It’s no wonder they can focus a lot of time and resources on the RED engine when they have a six-month headstart on other ‘new IPs’ because they’ve been give a stack of CP2020 and CPV3 sourcebooks.

      • It’s still a massive feat. Otherwise we’d have amazing movie tie-ins left and right. While the Witcher franchise is also based on a book (as far as I know and I don’t know how much they have actually taken from the book other than the basic princible of Witchers) they have done a great job to breathe life into a world and fill it with believable characters. If anything, their work is underrated.

      • With the Witcher they were also able to take inspiration from the polish TV series. I think what they’ve done is great with existing universes, hopefully at some point in the future they’ll be able to flex those creative abilities a bit further and start from a completely blank slate and see where it takes them.

        Also looking forward to what they produce with the REDkit, and how that stacks up against similar tools like with Skyrim, etc.

  4. hope they have done a PS3 port of Witcher 1&2 as well.

  5. Yeah, gotta say that looked stunning.
    Just picked up Witcher 1&2 on steam, but yet to play them.

  6. I love everything I’ve read and seen about Cyberpunk 2077 so far, including this teaser.
    Hopefully they have a PS3 Version up their sleeves, once The Witcher 3 comes around. If not I’ll just play it on the PC again.

    • It’s good, especially for existing CP fans, would’ve liked a little more ‘invention’; Dynalar and Militech are all established in the fiction, and the colorised poster of the woman in the shop window is straight from a line drawing in the 2020 rulebook – good to see they’re staying true to source, but want to see something new…. oh and a netrunning trailer as well

      • That’s always a problem with existing IP. Do you break free from the source material and do something new (possibly angering and alienating fans of the original) or do you stay true to the material (possibly alienating people who want something new). It’ll be interesting to see how they approach it. I personally have never heard of the Cyberpunk franchise before CD Project announced this game so I might have to do some reading to do. :)

      • There’s probably at least 40 sourcebooks for the pen and paer RPG (I have about 25 in the garage)…. As long as they get netrunning (neural jacking into the internet using Virtual reality) in some form into the game (infiltration, hacking etc) I’ll be happy.

        I think the trick is, and they;ve proved this with the Witcher, is adding stuff that isn’t out of place with the original although giving it a good 40-50 years after the original source material, gives a good opportunity for artistic license.

  7. Apart from Platinum Games these guys are probably my favourite developers around at the moment. Hopefully by 2015 the next gen consoles will be reasonably priced so I can check the game out lol.

  8. Time to immerse myself in some 90’s Manga Entertainment Anime OH YEAH!!!

    • You’re such a bunch of GitS (c wut i did?)

  9. Best teaser trialer I’ve seen in a while, anyone know what the song is?

  10. I could have posted this in my reply to Gazzagb but I didn’t think to. I know the trailer doesn’t really tell you much but for me it totally captures the entire vibe of the of Mike Pondsmith’s/R. Talsorian Games Cyberpunk aesthetic. I’m giving away my nerdiness here but I played and loved the original pencil and paper Cyberpunk 2013 (is that year here already? o_O) when I was a kid and also the second edition Cyberpunk 2020.

    It’s funny if you look at Cyberpunk those games now and see their idea of what 2013 and 2020 would be like (it was originally released in 1988) it’s amazing and despite the dark tones almost innocent in that “world of tomorrow exhibition from the 50’s” kind of way. Cyberpunk 2077 firmly has my attention.

    • You’re not the only one who goes back to the days when the Cyberpunk RPG was known only as Cyberpunk. Still got a very battered copy of View From The Edge around somewhere. Trailer was a little too shiny for me but I’ll wait patiently to see how it turns out.
