Many gaming fans caught a glimpse of our hidden message in one frame of our most recent Cyberpunk 2077
“Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t of course the only title we are working on, and we have been quite open about that for a while now. Now, if you watched that teaser very carefully, and by ‘very’ I really mean frame by frame, you may have noticed our hint at something big coming up on the 5th of February. On that day we will reveal something really cool, which we trust will make a lot of gamers seriously happy. For now, I can only repeat what we teased at in that hidden frame, that is for the first time in our studio’s history we are going out there into big wide open world. Just like with Cyberpunk 2077 but in a totally different setting. And if you just missed a heartbeat reading this thinking we may be moving away from our focus on story telling, you can start smiling again. We are and will be into good old story telling. Only this time, the story will be told within an open world environment, and with this we are planning to deliver the most exciting RPG experience to date. Keep your eyes open, and hopefully on the 5th of February you will be as excited as the whole CDP RED studio is. Be with us for that moment!” comments Badowski
