CD Projekt Red pull back the curtain on Cyberpunk 2077; workplaces around the world grind to a halt

More On: Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red have been making the rounds at trade shows this year, showing off the current state of Cyberpunk 2077 to the media behind closed doors. If you are anything like me, you excitedly read descriptions of the same gameplay from 20 different sources. Now you can see it for yourself.

CD Projekt Red just plunked a 48 minute video of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay onto YouTube. I haven't watched it yet myself (but you can bet I'm gonna!).

From the press release:

“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development.” — says Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. “Since many of the assets and mechanics in the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 are most likely to be modified, we initially decided to show this gameplay only to media. Elements like gunplay (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI — everything’s pretty much still in the playtest phase and we felt uneasy about publicly committing to any particular design. Animation glitches, work-in-progress character facial expressions, early versions of locations — all this made us hesitant to release what you’re about to see.”

“However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw.” — adds Badowski. “Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”

No word on how we are supposed to tell them what we think, but Gaming Nexus will keep you posted.
