Cyberpunk 2077 News Cyberpunk Red Release Date, Gamescom 2019 & Cyberpunk 2077 Updates from CD Projekt Red, details explained by Kazuliski.
Connect with Kazuliski for Cyberpunk 2077 News & Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay. Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG being developed by CD Projekt RED in association with the Cyberpunk 2020 Pen & Paper system author, Mike Pondsmith. Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in Night City, the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future. You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyber enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend. Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the same universe as Mike Pondsmith's classic pen & paper RPG system, Cyberpunk 2020 from R. Talsorian Games.
Welcome back to another Cyberpunk 2077 News update! There were several interesting developments in this week’s Cyberpunk 2077 News which I will be covering in today’s video, including Mike Pondsmith and R. Talsorian Games, providing a provisional release date for the Cyberpunk Red Core Rulebook. Update include CD Projekt Red attending Gamescom 2019. I shall also be dropping another Red Pill on recent Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date misinformation.
CD Projekt Red have yet to provide any official statements on Gamescom 2019 which will be held on 21st to 24th August in Cologne, Germany, but CD Projekt Red are now listed as having an exhibitor stand on the Gamescom 2019 website. I have spoken with some of my friends at CD Projekt Red, who have implied they would be attending.
Concerning a potential Cyberpunk 2077 release date and apparent news of CD Projekt Red working on another AAA RPG title, this information stems from a 2016 CD Projekt Capital Group strategy document for the years 2016 to 2021. This document amongst other things states that leading up to 2021, Cyberpunk 2077 will be released, as well as another AAA RPG title, including an expansion of their core franchises with additional media content and product lines.
What various Street Rats deliberately neglected to mention about the CD Projekt Capital Group Strategy document is the disclaimer at the end which reads: The information contained in this document reflects current conditions and projections based upon the status quo which is liable to change. All forecasts and statements concerning future events are based upon subjective opinions, evaluations and assumptions, and may therefore prove erroneous or inaccurate. Its no surprise many opted not to mention this vital piece of information, because it would not fit their narrative of attempting to deceive Cyberpunk 2077 fans.
This CD Projekt Red document from 2016 resurfaced this week, as on the official CD Projekt Investor Relations forum, a moderator by the name of Donata Poplawska commented that this strategy remains in place, although the moderator forgot to add the caveat, that the information is subject to change. I suspect when Donata made the post she was unaware that so many individuals would take her comment out of context. The vast majority of posts made online by other gaming companies are not subject to the same level of scrutiny as those from CD Projekt Red employees.
For argument's sake, let us entertain the possibility that the document is indeed accurate. It covers a time period of 2017 to 2021. This does not equate to Cyberpunk 2077 being released in 2021 as some commentators have suggested, it’s just a possibility. Secondly, it seems prudent that CDPR would already be working on titles they plan to release after Cyberpunk 2077, similar to how they worked on Cyberpunk 2077 alongside the Witcher franchise. If 2021 is the hypothetical target release date for this second title, I suspect a significant amount of time after the release of Cyberpunk 2077 would be necessary for CD Projekt Red to shift their resources into the next game, which would imply a release date much earlier than 2021.
