Update: A Polish website claims Cyberpunk 2077 is much further along than we think, with a playable version reportedly coming to E3 2018 alongside a debut trailer according to GamePressure.
An announcement regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 video game may be coming soon. The long-awaited game from CD Projekt Red - the developers behind the critically-acclaimed Witcher series - has been in development for several years, but little to nothing is actually known about the title. It was first announced in May 2012, but it wasn't until the following January that the first teaser trailer released, showcasing the open-world setting as well as potentially the main characters in a highly stylized fashion.
Unfortunately, that was the extent of any official details regarding the game. CD Projekt Red was busy developing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at the time, which is why little information was ever revealed about Cyberpunk 2077. But since The Witcher 3 released in May 2015, the studio has presumably kicked development of Cyberpunk 2077 into high gear. And that's evident by the game's official Twitter account becoming active for the first time in several years.
The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account made its first post today after many years, on the anniversary of the game's first teaser trailer release five years ago. All the tweet says is "*beep*", which means virtually nothing except, but it could be an indicator that CD Projekt Red may be gearing up to start marketing (and actually discussing) the highly-anticipated video game.

The last time the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter posted anything was in December 2013, which is why CD Projekt fans and cyberpunk enthusiasts are excited about a potential announcement coming soon. What that announcement will be, however, remains to be seen. Given that the Game Developers Conference (GDC), the first major video game event of the year, is right around the corner, perhaps the developer will make their announcement then. It's also possible that they'll reveal more background information about the game and its world via Game Informer, as they've done with their past titles.
So far, all that's known about Cyberpunk 2077 is that it's a follow-up of sorts to Mike Pondsmith's 1988 game, Cyberpunk 2020 (Pondsmith is also consulting on the new title), and that it's a non-linear role-playing game built on CD Projekt Red's newly-constructed REDengine 4. The game will have a multiplayer component in addition to its single-player campaign, which takes place in the metropolis known as Night City - a city in which a Psycho Squad hunts down "psychos," people who've abused the use of cybernetic implants to enhance themselves or others.
As a consolation for the long wait for Cyberpunk 2077, fans can rest assured knowing that the developer promises not to be greedy with the title, and that people should expect the game to be much bigger in scope than The Witcher 3, which is an ambitious task in and of itself.
