With Cyberpunk 2077 quickly becoming one of this generation’s most anticipated games, developer CD Projekt Red has been bombarded with questions about the game’s release date.
CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński seems excited to show off what the studio has planned for E3. In a blog post, Kiciński said, “We will be taking part in the upcoming edition of E3, which is shaping up to be the most important fair in CD Projekt’s history. We want to be even more prominent in Los Angeles than we were last year.”
Ahead of the release of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red opened an online retail store. The shop sells merchandise themed after the developer’s latest titles, such as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Cyberpunk 2077 items are live on the store as well.

What Is Cyberpunk?
Trying to define Cyberpunk is a difficult task. In short, however, Cyberpunk refers to both a culture and a genre.
Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that features advanced science and technology in an urban, dystopian future. On one side you have powerful mega-corporations and private security forces, and on the other you have the dark and gritty underworld of illegal trade, gangs, drugs, and vice. In between all of this is politics, corruption, and social upheaval.
Adult Swim and Crunchyroll have joined forces with Alcon Television Group, a division of Alcon Entertainment, to produce and distribute a new anime series called BLADE RUNNER – BLACK LOTUS that is set to feature top creators from Japan.
Inspired by the critically acclaimed Oscar-winning film BLADE RUNNER 2049, BLADE RUNNER – BLACK LOTUS will feature thirteen 30-minute episodes produced by animation studio Sola Digital Arts (Ultraman).
Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex) will direct all episodes of the premiere season. Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) is a creative producer.
The series will be “inspired by” Blade Runner 2049, though it appears that it will follow another separate story in the larger Blade Runner universe as the series will take place in the year 2032 — 13 years after the original movie. It’s unclear exactly what characters the series might focus on, but according to a press release the series will feature some familiar characters from the Blade Runner franchise.
Black Lotus will feature 14 30-minute episodes which will air during Adult Swim’s anime-centric programming block, Toonami. The episodes will also be streamable on Crunchyroll, the popular anime streaming service.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most-anticipated upcoming games of E3 2018, and so far developer CD Projekt Red (of Witcher fame), has been tight lipped about what the game will actually be like. However, at Microsoft’s E3’s press conference, the studio officially changed that by showing off the game and revealing some details about it.
The press conference was about to end before being “hacked” to show the first full trailer. It opened with a narrator saying poverty and other social issues had made his city the worst place to live, and yet, everyone wants to be there. It then showed a train emerging into a dazzling city of dreams, a metropolis of giant buildings adorned with dazzling screens, where organic skin is meshed with futuristic tech. The narrator describes himself as a “dreamer” before opening a case with a rifle in it. Viewers were then treated to montage of violence, with punk-stylised figures brutally attacking each other.
To understand Cyberpunk 2077, you first have to know Cyberpunk 2020. The latter was a beloved role-playing game from the late 1980s and early 1990s that incorporated many of the cyberpunk tropes. There’s cybernetic enhancement, nefarious corporations, devious punk rock hackers, neo-noir aesthetics, freaky future drugs and trench coats. So many trench coats.
In the world of 2020, the US sits at the mercy of megacorporations after the world basically goes to hell. These megacorps become fiefdoms with their own areas of interest and secret plots to gain dominion over the others. Within that combative environment rests California’s Night City, where players would play out their adventures as corporate raiders, rebel rock-and-roll stars, street doctors or cyborg plain-old assassins.
Though Cyberpunk itself has fallen in popularity, its influence can be seen in everything from the most recent Blade Runner to the (soon-to-be-defunct) Android: Netrunner card game. Cyberpunk 2077 would pick up the series 50-plus years later, with the trailer hinting at robotics far advanced beyond what was seen in the original pen-and-paper RPG. And beyond things looking appropriately cyberpunk-y, the state of the world and the many megacorps is pretty much unknown.
