One of the most anticipated RPG titles that have been making noise over the past two months is "Cyberpunk 2077." Though the game has yet to receive an official launching date, the latest details to come out may be enough to get gamers excited as they patiently wait for the game's arrival.

According to a report from PCGamesN, game developer CD Project Red confirmed that "Cyberpunk 2077" will be coming to digital distribution platform Steam. The announcement came in a presentation by CEO Adam Kiciński during the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar. The CD Project Red boss confirmed that the game will not be exclusive to GOG.

"Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious," said Kiciński during the presentation. "Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it's very appealing to players, not only RPG players — but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It's handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay," he explained.

According to TrustedReviews, "Cyberpunk 2077" has been relatively silent the past few years until January of this year, when the game's official Twitter account posted a single word that sent the gaming community abuzz. The account posted the word "*beep*" and left gamers and observers wondering what the message could be all about. Moreover, the tweet boosted life among fans who are close to giving up on the prospects of having the game see the day of light.

As for the gameplay, "Cyberpunk 2077" will be wider than "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," with its main backdrop called the Night City offering a huge place for exploration and a myriad of quests. Players will learn different skills and abilities, which they will use in combat that is deemed to be violent, the report noted.

TrustedReviews also said that though there is no specific release date as of the moment, the developer said that they are looking at 2019 to be the earliest, as far as the game's launching is concerned.
