Ever since Cyberpunk 2077 was announced almost six years ago its scarce development information was closely monitored by the gaming community. The game's twitter went silent a year later until that ominous *beep* back in January that, along with a few other signs sparked a massive wave of speculation and hope.

People are now largely speculating about the next trailer for the game being shown at E3 in June 2018 and those are not just wild guesses. Small signs have been popping up everywhere, first of which as of course the *beep* tweet on 10 January 2018, that broke an almost five year long Twitter silence.

 

Following the Twitter hype bomb CD Projekt Red served us, it was made known that they will participate at E3 in June 2018. It is yet unknown what kind of information they will give us, if any, and what game they might show at the expo.

For all we know it could be GWENT going out of open beta / release announcement for all we know, whose release is schedule to be ''sometime in 2018''. People are still holding fingers crossed for more Cyberpunk 2077.

The third sign of a possible trailer that could land soon would be Vodafone's interview with Mike Pondsmith, creator of the Cyberpunk pen and paper RPG who is also attached to the making of Cyberpunk 2077. In the interview he said ''You will see how much death there is throughout the trailer''

This hinted at a possibility of a trailer that could come rather soon. He is also hoping the CD Projekt Red will be able to flesh the game out the way he pictures it, so the future players might enjoy his vision.

He continued "There are things in the windows, reflections, things in the newspapers, scattered under the shattered bodies, things like that. These are things that cannot be completely told in a conventional video game because they come from the imagination of the game master," 

It will certainly be refreshing to dodge the PG13 that's dominating the media by showing us the gritty nature of violence and adult themes. If anything CD Projekt Red's work on The Witcher series proves they are the right team for this kind of game.
