CD Projekt RED did not offer a gameplay demo for Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 2019. The company wishes to stall for marketing reasons and to attract more attention by leaving potential customers keen to find out more about the game. Even more, the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay demo will not be revealed at Gamescom 2019. Instead, it was confirmed in a tweet that we would get the promised footage during of PAX West this year.

The event that will host the visual reveal will be held from the 30th of August until the 2nd of September. So there are a few days during which CD Projekt RED will release the material, as they did not state an exact date. However, it is anticipated that the presentation will happen on the last day of the event and will feature a video up to an hour long.
The end of summer will mark the moment when our eyes will be graced with the game’s short presence, and the 16th of April 2020 will be the release date for its release.
So here are a few juicy facts about the game and the studio that made it, in case you are unaware of their status and evolution.
The universe in Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt RED was formed by two guys from Poland who were working on some code for a game that got canceled. They decided to use some of that code to make another game. They liked the stories author Andrej Sapkowski wrote about a brooding protagonist, set in a medieval fantasy world, called the Witcher.
They used the story to make an exciting but flawed game. They did this two more times until the smash hit titled Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt was born. Fans loved these games for the right mix of story and gameplay mechanics.
Enter Cyberpunk 2077. This will feature a protagonist, who is a mercenary and is fully customizable, as opposed to the Wicher games. The setting for the game will take place in the future, obviously, and the action will center around an American megacity called Night City.
In Cyberpunk 2077, expect to have kings and merchants from The Witcher replaced with greedy corporations, street gangs, and robots in an altogether bleak environment that needs a stunning hero like yourself to either make things better or worse.
