Cyberpunk 2077 has a lot to live up to.
We called its grand E3 2018 reveal “the most mind-blowing demo we’ve ever seen.” Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red’s previous game, earned a prime spot as one of our favorite games of this generation. Witcher 3 actually usurped Deus Ex as my personal favorite game of all time, so CD Projekt Red working on a first-person cyberpunk role-playing game is as close to a “dream game” as I could envision. Add in Keanu Reeves and a star-studded custom soundtrack that includes a banger from Run The Jewels—my favorite musicians of this millennium—and this hype train couldn’t possibly be more stoked. There’s almost no way a game could live up to this level of expectation.
