Microsoft came to E3 with a mission to wow gamers and the press with a huge lineup of new games and exclusives. At the end of a very impressive ninety minute presentation, the live video feed began to show errors and a red computer terminal screen took over the event. What followed was the world premiere of CD Projekt Red’s newest creation, Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be the studio’s follow up to the massive success of The Witcher 3, the RPG widely considered to be one of the best of all time. The game was confirmed to be in development over five years ago at the Polish development house. While the project has maintained a constant level of hype since, the excitement grew in the last few months after rumors spread that the game would be appearing during E3 2018. It appears those rumors were true.
If Microsoft wanted to make a splash to end their E3 presentation, they certainly succeeded.
