Without a doubt, CD Projekt Red's forthcoming action-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 was one of, if not the most talked about game at E3 2018, with the developer having debuted what many in attendance have described as a stellar behind-closed-doors gameplay showcase of what's to come. Now, it looks as if the general public could finally be getting a look at actual in-game content as well, as CD Projekt Red has teased that the title will be featured during gamescom 2018.
As seen in the tweet below from the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, CD Projekt Red simply reveals that fans should expect to see the "next update" for the project be highlighted during gamescom 2018 on Tuesday, August 21, 2018. Unfortunately, though, the studio offers no explicit hint or clue as to what it plans on unveiling tomorrow during the annual European video game convention.

Naturally, with CD Projekt Red having only provided the public with descriptions and a cinematic trailer as a primer to Cyberpunk 2077, it's safe to presume that fans have their fingers crossed for tomorrow's reveal at gamescom 2018 to contain actual gameplay. After all, the aforementioned E3 2018 demo for the title was a real build of the game, so it stands to reason that the studio could have put even more polish on the presentation in order to provide players everywhere with a much better idea as to what should be expected at launch.
That said, though, it's really anyone's guess as to what CD Projekt Red has in store for its Cyberpunk 2077 update during gamescom 2018, especially since the studio has managed to play all of its cards incredibly close to the vest ever since the title was announced all the way back in 2012. So, with any luck, the developer is planning to pull out all the stops with whatever it has planned for tomorrow's promotion of Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 currently lacks an official release date, but is expected to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
