Microsoft unveiled 'Cyberpunk 2077' at Xbox E3 2018: No microtransactions, trailer and other details

Cyberpunk 2077 is the next upcoming game from the team that built The Witcher 3, CD Projekt RED. The upcoming sci-fi RPG is expected to a massive hit, due to the quality, depth, and breadth of The Witcher 3, which for our money remains the best Xbox One game ever made.

Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay was shown off for the first time at Microsoft's Xbox conference at E3 2018, and we finally have some idea on what to expect.

Cyberpunk 2077 literally hacked the E3 2018 conference, breaking through in the middle of Phil Spencer's closing speech. The game world showcases a futuristic landscape with all sorts of insane technology.

The "hacked" images dropped dozens and dozens of codes for The Witcher 3 for a split second, and also revealed other details about the game. There will be no microtransactions, the world is "seriously big," and a few other bits.

We don't have any information on availability just yet, but it certainly looks like CD Projekt RED could have another huge hit on their hands. Stay tuned for more as we get it.

  • Straight up crazy, gotta say.
  • Day one purchase!
  • I already have it preordered, I'm just waiting for a collectors edition so I can switch my money to that.
  • I usually don't pre-order, but this one is a must ... Like Red Dead 2. Rockstar and CD RED just deliver masterpieces ...
  • Stop pre ordering. They'll never run out of the game. It's a dirty tactic.
  • Except there will be a limited run of the collectors edition, so yes, they will run out. I never preorder standard versions of games.
  • I totally agree. People need to stop giving them money until they deliver.
  • Big change from when they were insulting the hardware quality of Microsoft for The Witcher 3!
  • The visuals in Witcher 3 are noticably worse than PS4 though, so their criticism is justified. The developer likes pushing the boundaries of what they have to work with, so it's no wonder they jumped on the One X immediately.
  • Gotta love that subtleties. Way to go CD Projekt Red!
  • Anyone else watching live thought it's Watch_Dogs 3 before they show CD Project Red's logo?
