In keeping with the aesthetic of its setting, CD Projekt Red hid several secrets in the story trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 which they debuted at E3. The biggest, perhaps, was the inclusion of a full FAQ for the game in the trailer’s final two frames. That FAQ answers several key questions about the game.
The Cyberpunk 2077 FAQ
The FAQ included in the trailer begins with a message from CD Projekt Red. To start, they apologize for the five-year gap between the game’s announcement and the release of the new trailer; “We wanted to give you The Witcher 3 and both expansions first, which is why this period of staying silent was longer than we planned. Sorry for that.” After the studio’s message, four questions and answers were given. Each one is a major one about the upcoming game.
CD Projekt Red did not include a release date with their story trailer. Unfortunately, it seems that they are not ready to reveal that date. “We’re definitely much, much closer to a release date than we were back then,” states the FAQ; “but it’s still not the time to confirm anything, so patience is still required”.
CD Projekt Red’s answer to this question is somewhat vague. “Seriously big,” it begins, but then continues, “but… to be honest, we have no bloody clue at this point in time.” The FAQ goes on to state that the studio will openly tell fans how big the game will be before the game is available for pre-order.
CD Projekt Red has generally been popular among fans for their approach to DLC. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt featured two major DLC expansions but also a whole host of free expansions which were released steadily after the game’s launch. The FAQ states that fans should “Expect nothing less than you got with The Witcher 3.” when it comes to Cyberpunk. Also, “As for DRM, CP2077 will be 100% DRM free on PC.”
While it should come as no surprise, CD Projekt Red’s response to this is a clear no; “In a single player role-playing game? Are you nuts?”
