Cyberpunk 2077 remains one of the video game industry’s best kept secrets. Despite the public knowing about it’s existence for nearly six years now, we know nothing about it and developer CD Projekt Red is more than content to keep things that way. That’s why fans are now going crazy over a recent tweet — regardless of how nonsensical that tweet actually is.
The tweet came early this morning, simply saying, “*beep*.”
That’s it. No new information or promise of any details in the coming days, weeks or even months. However, despite that tweet offering next to nothing, it has been shared plenty of times and left fans foaming from their mouths.
Why, you ask?
Because when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077, any event — no matter how small — is still a significant one. In the case of Twitter, the last time that account made a tweet was in 2013 when it announced the trailer for the game had won an award. Since then, the amount of times Cyberpunk 2077 has been officially mentioned in any capacity has been far and few between. In fact, some of the times it’s mentioned, there isn’t even anything about the game’s development or features. For example, the most recent announcement for the game came in Nov. 2017 when CEO Adam Kicinski stated it “would be more commercially focused, and that they company would like to experiment in new fields not explored in the Witcher series.”
If that doesn’t sound like much, that’s because it isn’t. Unfortunately, many of the announcements before then were much of the same, such as when Kicinski confirmed information that we had already known about or when the firm revealed that various files had been stolen and held for ransom.
Considering its past history, it’s hard to know what to make of this recent development. Is CD Projekt Red just messing with us or does this mark the start of something greater?
