Cyberpunk 2077 Awakens…
Posted on 10th January, 2018 - By Jonathan Hezzlewood
Well, kind of…
After 4 years, 1 month and 5 days of dormancy, it looks like some news may be coming for CD Projekt Red‘s highly anticipated neo-noir video-game thriller; Cyberpunk 2077.
Lots of hype and fan speculation has built-up ever since the developers behind one of the best games of 2015 – a.k.a. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – announced their next project many years ago.
And now, we have this…

Now, I know this may seem like absolutely nothing, and to an extent it is. But, fans on Twitter have certainly fluttered into action.
At the time of writing, there have been over 26.5k ‘Likes’, 10.5k ‘Retweets’ and 2.3k comments. That is a lot of hype and excitement, caused by four letters; book-ended by an asterisk at either side.
Given how well Blade Runner 2049 was received by critics and fans (who actually went to see it) alike, and the upcoming Netflix series; Altered Carbon, releasing next month. Now is the perfect time to strike – whilst the cyberpunk iron is hot (so to speak).

Now, there isn’t much to go on with the afore mentioned tweet, and although it way seem like nothing, this; for me, is a significant step forward.
*Beep* – what does it mean? Hopefully there is some big news coming.
More promotional artwork, more details on the story and the world in-which we’ll eventually get to explore. Perhaps even a new trailer… hopefully with a very near release date.
Don’t expect a release in 2018, this year belongs to Red Dead. But, maybe 2019? Who knows…
Are you excited by this rather simple, yet cryptic tweet?
What are you hoping this will lead to?
