Acclaimed Polish game developer CD Projekt Red teased its next RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, way back in 2012 and has remained almost completely silent about the project ever since. With The Witcher III now fully out of its system, the studio is finally returning to its ambitious sci-fi outing. Microsoft’s E3 2018 showcase closed out with a slick trailer for the game. It didn’t show what the moment-to-moment action might look like as you control the story’s star, a hired gun named V, but it gave us our first real look at the setting, Night City. And yep, it’s pretty much what you’d want out of a game with “cyberpunk” right there in the title: neon and robots and cybernetic enhancements everywhere, a grimy city on the verge of collapse, the clean-cut corporate scumbags who keep it there, and, of course, noodle stands. The game still doesn’t have a release date, but when it does arrive, it’ll be launching on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
