After waiting five long years between trailers, CD Projekt RED closed out the Microsoft E3 2018 press conference in style by revealing a brand new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer. The video offered up some new details about the game's setting, Night City, as well as the grim things that its inhabitants get up to and it even offered a brief description of the game's story too. But these were only the most obvious points from the trailer, as it appears that the developer also included a hidden message for fans.
Spotted by some eagle-eyed viewers on Twitter, it seems that the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer includes a heartwarming and refreshingly honest message from CD Projekt RED to its fans. In red text that flashes up before the main action begins, the developer apologizes for waiting for long to show off the game again, explaining that it has been "full speed ahead" on Cyberpunk 2077 development since it released the Blood and Wine DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The developer then goes on to answer some frequently asked questions about the game. First off, it encourages fans to be more patient as "quality is the only thing that drives us," then it confirms that the game is "seriously big," before suggesting that the game will have "nothing less" than what fans got with The Witcher 3 when it comes to DLC and expansions.
The developer even addresses the possibility of microtransactions, saying "in a single player game? Are you nuts?" The response comes as little surprise given that CD Projekt RED once criticized "greedy" developers that include microtransactions in their games, but fans who dislike the business model will still be glad about that answer.
Finally, the Cyberpunk 2077 team closes out the hidden message by thanking fans once again for their patience. The developer also encourages fans to share their views on the game so far because "we read everything you post" and "treat it very seriously."
At this point, there is still plenty to be revealed about the game. For example, there is little information about the proposed multiplayer features and important aspects of the game world, including the nightclub and bar-based hubs and what players will be able to do in them, have also only been teased but not fully detailed. This is not entirely unexpected given that the game doesn't yet have a release date but many will be hoping that the Cyberpunk 2077 developer feels inclined to share more at some point soon.
Cyberpunk 2077 platforms have not yet been confirmed and the game does not yet have a release date.
