Cyberpunk 2077 fans have been given a fresh update on the game’s release date.

Industry insider Jason Schreier recently told Twitter followers that Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn’t launch in 2019.

It was in response to a rumour that Cyberpunk 2077 would launch in November. Addressing the rumour, he said: “Idk where you saw that rumor but Cyberpunk is absolutely not coming out this year.”

In a follow-up tweet, Schreier would once again suggest that the game will launch in 2020, but not without giving fans fresh hope of a 2019 release date.

“This has gotten a lot of Reddit attention so some clarity,” he said. “I’ve heard from three sources that Cyberpunk was aiming for 2019, but belief around the studio was that it was an unrealistic target.

“I expect first half 2020 or maybe even an E3 announcement of 2019, then a delay to 2020.”

Of course, CD Projekt’s hiring of a release manager would suggest that the end is in sight and the launch is closer than you might think.

According to the job listing, the successful candidate will be responsible for liaising with publishing partners and for organising submissions to console manufacturers.

“We’re looking for a quality-focused and well-organised Release Manager to support us on our current and upcoming projects and to take part in coordination of all global product releases,” reads a CD Projekt job ad.

“As release manager you will cooperate and communicate with all stakeholders from the CD Projekt involved in the release and take active part in organising whole process.

“It includes submissions to first party console manufacturers, oversee compliance certification process and working with partners on publishing process on multiple platforms.”

Fans should find out more at E3 2019, although the good news ends there.

After impressing fans during last year’s E3 gaming expo, fans were hoping to get some hands-on time with the game at this year’s event.

But in a disappointing turn of events, CD Projekt has told fans that the hugely anticipated game won’t be playable at the event.

That’s according to CD Projekt global community lead Marcin Momot, who said: “To answer many questions about the demo and whether or not @CyberpunkGame will be playable at E3 – we are going to be hosting gameplay presentations (game played by us) in that cinema.”
