O primeiro trailer de Cyberpunk 2077 foi exibido na conferência da Microsoft na E3 2018 ontem, e a CD Projekt RED inseriu um FAQ completo sobre o game nele. É possível ler o texto ao unir dois quadros da parte final do trailer.

Segue o texto na íntegra mostrado na imagem acima.

It’s been over 2077 days since we announced our plan to develop Cyberpunk2077. We released a CGI trailer, gave some interviews and…went dark. Normal procedure for these kinds of things – you announce a game and then shut up, roll up your sleeves, and go to work. We wanted to give you The Witcher 3 and both expansions first, which is why this period of staying silent was longer than we planned. Sorry for that.

As soon as we concluded work on Blood and Wine, we were able to go full speed ahead with CP2077’s pre-production. But we chose to remain silent. Why? At some point, we made a decision to resume talking about the game only when we have something to show. Something meaningful and substantial. This is because we do realize you’ve been (im)patiently waiting for a very long time and we wouldn’t want anyone to feel that we’re taking this for granted. On the contrary – it gives us a lot of extra motivation. The hype is real, so the sweat and tears need to be real too :).

But, to the point. Today is the day. If you’re seeing this, it means you saw the trailer – our vision of Cyberpunk, an alternative version of the future where America is in pieces, megacorporations control all aspects of civilized life, and gangs rule the rest. And while this world is full of adrenaline, don’t let the car chases and guns mislead you. Cyberpunk 2077 is a true story-driven single player RPG. You’ll be able to create your own character and… well, you’ll get to know the rest from what we show at our booth at E3. Be on the lookout for the previews!

Before we finish, you probably have some questions.

  1. When? When we told you we would only release the game when it’s ready, we meant it. We’re definitely much, much closer to a release date than we were back then :), but it’s still not the time to confirm anything, so patience is still required. Quality is the only thing that drives us – it’s the beauty of being an independent studio and your own publisher.
  2. How Big? Seriously big, but… to be honest, we have no bloody clue at this point in time. Once we put it all together, we will openly tell you what you can expect. And we promise we’ll do this before we start talking about any pre-orders or ask anything of you.
  3. Free DLC/Expansions/DRM? Expect nothing less than you got with The Witcher 3. As for DRM, CP2077 will be 100% DRM free on PC.
  4. Microtransactions? In a single player role-playing game? Are you nuts?

Once again, thank you for your patience. If you have a minute, do visit cyberpunk.net and share your opinion (about anything) with us. We read everything you post and we treat it very seriously.

Yours,

CD PROJEKT RED Team

Como pode ver, a CD Projekt RED comenta que decidiu ficar em silêncio sobre Cyberpunk 2077 até ter algo para mostrar, mas ainda assim não está pronta para falar sobre uma data de lançamento. Além disso, o jogo não terá microtransações e o esquema de DLCs gratuitos, assim como expansões, será similar à situação de The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Além desse FAQ, há um endereço “212.91.11.20” que, no momento, pede um login. Um usuário do Reddit usou a senha NC 20 CP77 que o trailer mostra na placa de um carro. Ao fazer isso, a mensagem “connection failed, password expired credential expired” aparece. É possível que um ARG esteja a caminho.

Por fim, na conferência da Microsoft, quando o trailer foi exibido, o telão pareceu que foi hackeado. Nessa parte, vários códigos de download de 25 caracteres surgiram e forneciam The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt às pessoas que fossem rápidas em descobrir isso. No momento, todos os códigos já foram usados.
