During today’s FY19 Q1 earnings call, CD Projekt Red president Adam Kiciński commented on if we’ll get a release date for Cyberpunk 2077 this E3.
Bloomberg questioned, “Can you reveal whether you will be announcing the release date of Cyberpunk at E3, or not yet?” To which, Kiciński replied, “Sorry, but we cannot say that – I mean, we can neither confirm nor deny this.”
Answering another question that asked, “Once the Cyberpunk release date is officially announced, will the company begin accepting preorders?”, Kiciński said, “I’m sorry, we cannot answer this question right now, although we did do this with The Witcher 3. If I remember correctly, the preorder campaign launched concurrently with the release announcement.”
Of many topics that Kiciński touched during the call, one was VR. “As for VR – technically speaking, it is not terribly difficult to add support for it,” Kiciński responded to a question concerning VR technology and its integration. “We render our graphics in 3D anyway – of course, the screen itself is flat, but if someone owns a 3D adapter and a pair of VR glasses, they can enjoy rudimentary VR. The issue becomes more challenging when we factor in game design. There are substantial changes which must be taken into account when working on a VR-specific product. Our current focus is on the PC and console editions of Cyberpunk, so we’re not moving in that direction right now.”
This year at E3, CD Projekt Red will have two presentations concerning Cyberpunk 2077, one for the public and one behind closed doors for those who were lucky enough to get an appointment. The private presentation will be an hour-long. “We are also preparing certain surprises so, again, I invite you to monitor social media and if you’re able to – come to E3 in person,” Kiciński said during the call.
