Cyberpunk 2077 Aiming for Late 2016 Release - Report

Cyberpunk 2077 Aiming for Late 2016 Release - Report

Richard Walker

CD Projekt RED is apparently looking to launch Cyberpunk 2077 by the end of 2016, according to "a reliable source" reportedly close to the Polish developer.

The source in question verified the release window to Gamereactor Germany, and it sounds somewhat plausible given that the developer has now been working on the sci-fi RPG based upon Mike Pondsmith's pen & paper universe since mid-2012.

Of course, CD Projekt RED has also been juggling The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which launched for Xbox One, PS4 and PC back in May, but no doubt focus has now shifted wholly to the sci-fi RPG. Here's hoping that Cyberpunk 2077 also makes its way to consoles in late 2016, should that release window prove to be accurate.

  • Hope they show it off at E3 love RPGs
  • What happened to not talking about it till 2017?
  • Yeah, not holding my breath on this one. Like @2 mentioned, they came out earlier this year and said they wouldn't even be talking about it until 2017. Sounds amazing though.
  • Unless they've had a second team working on this alongside The Witcher 3, a 2016 release isn't happening. Nevermind the fact that all they've shown is a CG trailer.
  • I would say 2017 at the earliest. Their last game is barely 6 months old.
  • I don't see it and frankly that's fine with me. Between FFXV, DS III, ME:Andromeda and FFVII (fingers crossed) my 2016 is pretty full already. 2017 will allow them to really make the game as great as it sounds.
  • The reliable source probably mixed up Q4 2016 as in at the end of 2016. Quarters are just accounting terms that were adopted by software directors. While there is a chance it being 2016, it would be highly more likely to be early 2017.
  • Not a chance, lol. CDPR already said 2015-2017 were all about The Witcher 3 support. Cyberpunk won't be out until Q4 2017 the earliest.
  • I don't care when it comes out, the game will be cock explodingly good.
  • Who gave you this information? The Great Koala?
  • Not believing this at all. Hasn't it been cancelled like 3 times?
  • Rumours aside.. a cyberpunk rpg by CDPr!!! Day one!! Cannot wait to see more of this one!
  • Loved the original trailer from a year or two ago (even if it was just a cinematic), one of my most anticipated games already for whichever year it is released.
  • I hope they finish it as soon as possible so that they can move to the witcher 4
  • Can't wait to see what they can do with some other games now after their success with The Witcher series.
  • I love cyberpunk games. Can't wait for this, whenever it arrives.
