Cyberpunk 2077 E3 Demo to Be Made Public During PAX West

We’ll have to wait a bit longer before the private Cyberpunk 2077 demo shown during E3 2019 sees the light of day.

CD Projekt Red made waves during E3 2019 when Keanu Reeves revealed the release date for Cyberpunk 2077. Members of games media also had the chance to see a private, hands-off demo of Cyberpunk 2077, just like last year. The extended demo featured new gameplay that expanded upon various game mechanics and plot details. Thanks to a recent tweet, we now have a rough timeline for when to expect the Cyberpunk 2077 E3 demo to be made public.

Mark Your Calendars for PAX West 2019

Although many outlets have covered what they saw in the extended demo for Cyberpunk 2077, it seems that the public will still need to wait a few months before the footage is made public. In a response to a Twitter post from shinobi602, who stated the demo would be unleashed to the public after Gamescom, the Global Community Lead at CD Projekt Red Marcin Momot clarified that the extended gameplay demo will be made public during PAX West 2019. “It’s going to happen exactly during PAX West,” replied Momot.

No need to break out the calendar. PAX West 2019 runs from August 30 through September 2. Fans have a couple months to wait before they can feast their collective eyes on this year’s Cyberpunk 2077 E3 demo. CD Projekt Red utilized the same release pattern last year for the game’s first behind-closed-doors gameplay demo. The developer revealed hands-off gameplay during E3, then released the footage to the public a few months later.
