Cyberpunk 2077

Expected Release: Sometime before the Earth plunges into the sun?

As a Shadowrun devotee, the glitzy lights of a dystopian cyberpunk future have had me eagerly waiting for this CD Projekt Red entry since it was first announced. 

I won't ever forget the date: it was January 10th, 2013 when an astonishingly detailed trailer arrived for Cyberpunk 2077. At the end of that trailer, a small line of text revealed the game would be coming "when it's ready."

"Good," I thought to myself, "make sure its polished and perfect." Now here we are more than four years later. And while the hype is still alive, it's increasingly exceeded by annoyance. Five months back, we rightfully asked Where The Hell Is Cyberpunk 2077 Already?!?

The answer is still: who the hell knows? Maybe we'll see something concrete around E3 this year? Probably not, though.

Considering the quality of The Witcher 3, it's a foregone conclusion something amazing is coming. But this studio seriously needs to get on revamping its advertising strategies here, as it feels like that 2013 trailer should have just dropped this year instead.
