The development cycle of Cyberpunk 2077 took a lot of time. But this simply shows that CD Projekt Red carefully crafts its titles, including this one.
The first official Cyberpunk 2077 trailer was finally presented at this year's E3 conference. The trailer is rich in details and offers a lot of information for those who pay attention.
Obviously, there are some amazing Easter eggs that you might have missed while watching the trailer. But don't worry, as we're here to help you catch on with all the references included in the debut Cyberpunk 2077 trailer.
Of course, you could expect an Easter egg to one of the greatest cyberpunk movies in the history of media -- Blade Runner. You can see the metro map early in the trailer to Cyberpunk 2077. There is a number: N6MAA10816.
This is not a random number, but a reference to Roy Batty, the leader of the renegade Nexus-6 Replicant group and the main opponent of Rick Deckard. He was protrayed by Rutger Hauer and that number was the serial number of his model in the movie.
The trailer shows different locations and looks like a retrospective of the world of Cyberpunk 2077. There is a scene inside a sports club, where a modified human fights with a robot that looks very similar to Atom from the movie Real Steel.
In the movie, Atom is a sparring bot of the 2nd generation, so maybe the bot in Cyberpunk 2077 trailer is of the first generation, since it looks a bit clunkier. In any case, it shows that developers really wanted to include every possible reference to cyberpunk culture out there.
During the same fight scene inside a sports gym, you can see the name of the given establishment in the far right corner. The title may refer to Kozo Fuyutsuki, a character from an anime television series Evangelion.
Fuyutsuki is the Vice Commander of Nerv HQ and Gendo Ikari's right-hand man. However, the name Fuyutsuki wasn't originated from Evangelion, but during WWII. It was the name of an Akizuki-class destroyer of the Japanese Navy, which literally means "Winter Moon."
Another great Easter egg comes in the second half of the trailer, where you can see a lady modifying her face with removable parts. This is a clear reference to Ghost in the Shell, both the anime and the Hollywood feature film.
This hints on the possible character modification during the gameplay, but it's not clear whether it will be cosmetic only, or will it give some kind of extra stats to your character as well.
Lastly, the very end of the trailer reveals the IP address of a website -- Cyberpunk.net (read more about it here). There is a registration field where you can enter your login and password.
It turns out that the login is the model of the car, which could be seen in the trailer -- Quadra V-Tech. But what is the password? Well, it's the plate number of that same car, which is NC20 CP77.
You can't use this anymore, as both login and password are expired, but people who were fortunate enough to use the data, received the congratulations letter from CD Projekt Red.
