Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED’s upcoming open world role-playing game, currently has not been given a release date. Earlier this week, Turkish video game publisher Bilkom may have shared a release date for the game. In a Twitter post, Bilkom claims that Cyberpunk 2077 will be released sometime in 2019.
Bilkom was founded in 1984 and has since made a name for itself in Turkey. The firm has previously been involved with other major brands, such as ASUS, Apple, and even CD Projeckt RED. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, one the most successful titles of CD Projekt RED, was published in Turkey by Bilkom.
With no official release date from the developers, this vague piece of information is all we have for now. While the developers recently announced that Cyberpunk 2077 is now fully playable from start to finish, the recent gameplay videos and screenshots make it clear that the game still needs more work. Earlier this year in June, Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith said, “I’ve waited 30 years to get to this and it was worth it. You guys can wait a few more years, it will be worth it.”
Keeping this in mind, the scenario becomes even more confusing. On one hand, Bilkom claims that the game will launch next year, while on the other, Pondsmith states that Cyberpunk 2077’s release may be quite a ways away.
Considering all the facts, even the authenticity of the Turkish source, a 2019 release seems very unlikely. CD Projekt RED is known for their polished games and it looks like the team still has a long way to go before Cyberpunk 2077 is ready for release. As this information is far from an official confirmation, fans should consider it a rumor at best.
In the future, when Cyberpunk 2077 approaches completion, the developers will share a definite release date. Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on current-gen consoles the PC, and possibly the next-generation consoles.
