The game was first announced all the way back in 2012, and interest has only grown over the past eight years.At Microsoft's E3 press conference in June 2018, fans finally got a first look at the new game. Then, one year later at another Microsoft E3 press conference, Keanu Reeves showed up to announce that he would play a character in the game - and, more importantly, that "Cyberpunk 2077" would finally come out in April 2020. April 2020 came and went, as did two subsequent launch dates.
Those delays don't appear to have decreased interest, as "Cyberpunk 2077" is clearly off to a huge start.Got a tip?
