As of now, we know that CD Projekt Red is working on four titles that they want out by 2021. So with that said, where does this put the company’s anticipated sci-fi project based on Mike Pondsmith’s Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop RPG? Well, according to a recent job listing and the company’s call for proposals, we might just get a glimpse of the game at one of the major events due to happen this year.
First and foremost, this is just speculation and should be taken with a grain of salt. None of this is end-all or be-all evidence, but an accumulation of recent listings by CD Projekt Red that could be a potential revealing of something to come at an event — namely E3, GDC, Gamescom or Promised Land.
With the above notice out of the way, according to one of the most recent actions by CD Projekt Red that sees the company filing a trademark for the word “Cyberpunk”, the company’s recent activeness could link up with one of the most recent job listings that mentions E3, GDC and Gamescom.
It’s worth pointing out that during the company’s earning call on March 30th — presented by Adam Kincinski (President, Joint CEO) and Piotr Nielubowicz (Member of the board, CFO) — that 2017 is all about GWENT. Although nothing major will supposedly be released regarding Cyberpunk 2077 this year, it doesn’t rule out that something minor could pop up.
In addition to the above, the company recently posted up a job listing that sees an Event Manager helping the company prep for major events like the ones listed above.
“We’re looking for an exceptional talent, who will use his/her experience, knowledge and creativity to organize the best events in the industry. International fairs, extraordinary media shows, great events for players, limited only by our imagination? E3, Gamescom, GDC, Promised Land? It’s our reality and soon can be yours too.”
Furthermore, we learn from some call proposals that CD Projekt Red hopes to put out four games by 2021. The four games in size (two of which we know of) are listed below:
- (minor game) – Gwent – 2017
- (major game) – Cyberpunk 2077
- (minor game) – title N/A
- (???) – title N/A
The job listings found on the proposals are quite interesting, although the real intriguing part of the details is the timeline that are connected to them. The dates in the jobs explain that there is a deadline to the government funded project, but the company has the choice to extend the deadline.
In addition to the above, the project will run up until June 2019. This means that we could see Cyberpunk 2077 either in late 2018 or early 2019, which coincides with the company’s earning call statement that 2017 is all about GWENT and that next year they will focus on Cyberpunk 2077.
With that all said and the latest Event Manager job listing, we just might see a teaser or something revealing another CGI or an actual in-game snippet of Cyberpunk 2077 at this year or next year’s E3, Gamescom, GDC or Promised Land. If the above is all true and comes to fruition, would you be excited to see a small glimpse of the upcoming sci-fi game at any of the named events?
