CD Projekt RED has previously announced that they will be bringing Cyberpunk 2077 to E3 2019. But it turns out, they will be discussing the game before that as well. In a recent tweet by the official E3 Twitter account, CD Projekt RED CEO Marcin Iwiński will also be attending a separate event, an E3 Coliseum panel, where he’ll be discussing Cyberpunk 2077 among other things.
CD Projekt RED has already made a huge deal of its upcoming E3 event. They have actually said it will be the “the most important (event) ever in their history as a studio”. But fans who have been dying to hear more about the hugely anticipated RPG will be hearing about it sooner. The E3 Coliseum panel will take place between Jun 11 and 13 at Los Angeles. It has been announced that CEO Iwiński will be discussing “the past, present, and future of CD Projekt RED including Cyberpunk 2077“. Fans who are dying for some actual gameplay footage will possibly have to wait till the actual E3 event, as coliseum panels don’t usually feature gameplay footage or trailers. We can however expect to hear about the development process, other behind-the-scenes details and who knows, maybe even a date.
Here is the exact tweet by E3:

The Development Process Has Been Rocky!
Cyberpunk 2077 is easily one of the most highly anticipated games right now. But rumors have been floating around about the the development going through a bit of a rough patch. Cyberpunk 2077 was announced back in 2013. But the development only started two years later in 2015. And if the rumors are to be trusted, the development process has been far from smooth.
In the most recent revelation, a former employee of CD Projekt RED gave an anonymous interview to Kotaku, where he drew comparisons between the rocky development of Cyberpunk 2077 and the famously messy development of another game, Anthem.
“I’ve felt that there are hundreds of parallels that could be drawn between the story of the rocky development of Anthem and the story of the rocky and even-more-rocky-to-become development of Cyberpunk 2077. At times, I’ve felt I could just replace the studio name and the game title, and it would all look so similar, almost identical.”
Some analysts have pegged this problem to the financial trouble that CD Projekt RED are supposedly going through. There have been rumors floating around about CDPR struggling financially. This is supposedly because their last major title Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales failed to do well in the market. Studio heads have however denied these rumors, with CEO Marcin Iwiński claiming that the company has a “big war chest” for development.
CD Projekt RED have also recently revealed that they actually have a different team working on a whole different game. They have revealed that the game is relatively smaller than Cyberpunk 2077, as one would expect. But they’ve also added that the game is unlike anything we’ve seen until now, calling it a “stellar” concept.
CD Projekt RED have also announced that they will be revealing two AAA games by the end of 2021. Those are Cyberpunk 2077 and this other game. We can expect to hear more about this mysterious “other game” during the E3 event.
