Earlier this week at Gamescom, CD Projekt Red showed off a new trailer for their upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. While not too much was changed from the initial E3 trailer, the trailer was followed by news that the game, in its current state, was playable from start to finish.

Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably one of the most anticipated games in years, and after 6 years of development, it has been confirmed by producer Richard Borzymowski in an interview with Engadget that the game is now playable from start to finish.

In the interview, taking place at the CD Projekt Red Gamescom booth, Borzymowski stated that the games development had reached a significant point. While there is still a need for more playtesting, bug fixes, and the addition of a few assets, the overall framework for the game appears to have been finished.

There was also some talk about the demo shown at Gamescom. According to Engadget writer Jessica Conditt, the demo shown here was virtually the same as the one shown at E3, with the key differences being a new weapon being introduced, as well as showing the games setting, Night City, at night. This is something that CD Projekt Red has refrained from up to this point, and had led to criticism of the initial E3 trailer from both fans and even the author of Neuromancer and father of the Cyberpunk genre, William Gibson.

These developments have also led some to ask about a possible release date for the game. While no official statements have been made, there has been speculation that the game will likely be released sometime in 2019. This assumption comes from two main facts that we know of.

First off, CD Projekt Red received a grant from the Polish government in order to research new game techniques back in 2016. The proposed techniques that earned the developer the funding, which include “City Creating” and “Cinematic Feel”, have been speculated to be specifically for Cyberpunk 2077, and while there has been no official confirmation of this, if true it would mean the game would have to be released by June 2019.

The second thing that have led people to the idea of a 2019 release is the statement by the game's Quest Designer, Patrick Mills, that the current console generation would be what the game was aiming for.  With the next generation of consoles rumored to release as soon as 2020. As such, this would leave a fairly small window of time for CyberPunk to release.

Right now there is a lot of speculation surrounding the game, but with this recent information it’s understandable to see people getting even more hyped for the game's release, whenever that may be.
