Previously CD Projekt Red had announced that there would be a new trailer for the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 game at PAX West, but they have now cancelled the panel that was scheduled for the show and will now live stream new gameplay footage instead.
That’s the good news, the bad news is it will be fifteen minutes taken from the demo currently being shown at Gamescom, which is also the same demo from E3, so chances are you will have read about or seen some of the footage before.
CD Projekt Red have also commented on Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer component, which was announced then they stopped talking about it, then their boss said it was being worked on, then it wasn’t, it all got a bit confusing. Senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers has now explained the situation clearly.
“We are doing R&D into multiplayer but we’re focusing on single-player experience, and that’s what you’ll get in 2020,” he said. “It doesn’t mean we’re saying no multiplayer, but it doesn’t mean we’re saying yes either. It’s still an R&D phase.”
CD Projekt Red have posted a bunch of new screens for Cyberpunk 2077 which you can find here. Just before Gamescom kicked off it was revealed that the game would be heading to Google’s new streaming platform, Stadia.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be landing in stores, both physical and digital, on April 16th 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC. At the start of the month Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game was announced which is created in collaboration with an international board game publisher CMON!
There is also an official lore book, “The World of Cyberpunk 2077” will launch on April 21st, 2020. This comes several days after Cyberpunk 2077’s release date of April 16th so there are no spoilers for the game.
