​This Year’s E3 Is “Most Important One Ever” For ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Developers

At a financial briefing held earlier today, CD Projekt RED's CEO Adam Kiciński said that "Last year's E3 had been the most important one throughout CD Projekt's history, but this year's one is going to be the most important one ever for us. We have prepared strong shows."

While Kiciński confirmed the team is indeed working on another big project, the team would not be talking about it until after the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, so as not to to distract the studio's messaging.

All that Kiciński would say about the *other* project was that "It's not going to be a project to port an old game." I presume that means it's not a remake of one of the studio's older games, too, but he didn't explicitly rule it out. (A remake of the original Witcher game, anyone?)

In regards to the rumour that Lady Gaga has been brought in to play a part in Cyberpunk 2077, Kiciński would only say that while there are some surprises prepared for E3, "it's not going to be any pop artist". Hopefully, that still means she may be in the game itself.

One person in attendance asked the CEO if it was possible or, indeed, the plan for Cyberpunk 2077 to be cross generation. Kiciński replied, "Yes, absolutely." Though it appears he was saying that to the possibility of cross-generation, rather than the plan, as he went on to say: "We've already said publicly that our technology was developed thinking about new generations. The new generation hasn't been announced yet but the RED Engine has been developed from scratch to make sure it can be developed from generation to generation. If there is an opportunity to launch Cyberpunk for another generation we would want to do this, probably."

That was everything on Cyberpunk from the briefing, but it's definitely enough to start getting excited for E3 in June. Is Cyberpunk the game you're most excited for at E3? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
