CD Projekt RED has been endlessly teasing its upcoming project, Cyberpunk 2077, for over half a decade now. While its E3 2018 presence briefly expanded on the first-person shooter, it's gameplay and world is still shrouded in mystery. Controlled 50-minute demos have enthralled press behind closed doors, but public-facing information is essentially non-existent.

In tone with recent Cyberpunk 2077 marketing, CD Projekt RED has kicked off a cryptic live stream through its official Twitch account. Bearing the title "DATA TRANSMISSION IN PROGRESS_," the video features lines of jumbled code descend the screen. Keen-eyed Reddit users have uncovered reference to image files, but the stream's purpose is ultimately still unknown. Could a new public announcement be on the horizon?

This isn't the first instance of mysterious streams fueling marketing, as seen with Bethesda's reveal of Fallout 76. With any news of Cyberpunk 2077 highly anticipated, we'll be watching the situation as it develops.

In meantime, check our in-depth preview of Cyberpunk 2077, after spending 50 minutes with CD Projekt RED via an exclusive demo. Our senior editor, Jez Corden, praised its unrivaled depth and freedom, setting the bar significantly ahead of existing games on the market.

Cyberpunk 2077 will hit Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It has no known launch date, but it is currently available for preorder at Amazon.
