Ever since the reveal of Cyberpunk, fans of developers CD Projekt Red have been eagerly anticipating it's release.
The futuristic setting of their up and coming game looks absolutely nothing like their classic The Witcher series, but there is a scene in The Witcher 3 which definitely indicates that both titles share the same universe.
WARNING! SPOILERS FOR THE WITCHER 3 ARE INCOMING! Don't say we didn't warn you.
During the game, we learn that our characters re able to visit different worlds. In one of the speaking scenes between Geralt and Ciri, our protagonist describes the time when he went to an alien planet, whilst Ciri tell us of something much more interesting.
She shares a story, which she says Geralt wouldn't believe, where people "had metal in their hands, waged war from a distance, using things similar to mega scopes.
"There were no horses, everyone had their own flying ship instead."
Call it an Easter egg if you will, but no matter what you label it as it is too much of a coincidence to not have been included purposely. One YouTuber, who goes by the name of Tolkfan, remembered this rumour from back in 2015 and placed Ciri's dialogue on top of the new 2018 Cyberpunk trailer.
It fits almost identically. Pretty cool, eh? Cyberpunk 2077 was showcased quite a lot at this year's E3, so when it eventually gets released in 2019 we hope to see some sort of Ciri reference in their too!
