If you've been wondering whether the recent crunch stories will make CD Projekt Red delay Cyberpunk 2077, now's the time to stop as the teasers have begun airing.
In case you've missed it, the dev instituted mandatory crunch until Cyberpunk 2077 launches, although to be fair, it's been blown way out of proportion . And no, we're not crunch-apologists, but you can read up on that in the provided links.
As for the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser, it was part of Microsoft's Xbox promotion that aired in Game 1 of NBA Finals. And they sure brought out the big ones as the short clip features everybody's sweetheart, Keanu "You're Breathtaking" Reeves.
In tune with the general theme of cyberpunk as a genre, Reeves reminds prospective Cyberpunk 2077 players that criminals in 2077 are only those poor sods that get caught, which players hopefully won't.
"In Night City, you can become anybody...anything, as long as your body can pay the price", he adds, hinting at all the body modifications that can turn you into anything walking data centres to bonafide monsters. You can catch a glimpse of a few of them, including the praying mantis-like switchblades, which we can't wait to wield.
Thanks to The Game Awards' head honcho Geoff Keighley who kindly posted it on his, there's no need to go sift through the game's advertisement slots.
It's not often that we get a fan-favourite video game company like CDPR work with a fan-favourite actor like Reeves, who portrays the role of Cyberpunk 2077 legend Johnny Silverhand. "So seize the day, and set in on fire" when the game launches on November 19, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
