Cyberpunk 2077 (or, at least, some new gameplay footage) is almost here.

CD Projekt Red made a splash at E3 this year (for reasons good and bad), showing off a behind-closed-doors demo of its upcoming open-world RPG. Since last year’s lengthy glimpse, fans have been eagerly anticipating another look at the gritty sci-fi game.

And, according to CDPR, they’ll get that look next week. Today, the developer announced it will be revealing a portion of the demo it’s been showing off at Gamescom on August 30th.


“Next week we’re going to host a stream during which we’ll unveil a 15-minute edit of what we’ve been showing to journalists and gamers here at Gamescom, and then interview devs from the studio for additional information on what you just saw. Expect a lot of insight into the thought process behind creative decisions, information about Pacifica – one of the districts of Night City – and tons of stuff on playstyles you’ll be able to adopt when you launch Cyberpunk 2077 next year,” the Polish publisher wrote on the game’s official website.

Hollie Bennett, CDPR’s UK head of communications, will be hosting the stream. She’ll be joined by a lineup of as-yet-unannounced developers.

CD Projekt Red has followed this pattern before. In 2015, the developer showed a demo of The Witcher 3 behind closed doors before releasing it to the public in August. Last year, it did the same with the much-hyped Cyberpunk 2077 demo.

Will we get a closer look at the game’s driving? A thorough look at Cyberpunk 2077’s support for distinct playstyles? More Keanu? More transphobia? Time will tell.
