CD Projekt RED’s Adam Kicinski revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 is currently in a pre-alpha stage. This was revealed during a new closed show in Warsaw where CD Projekt presented the same demo that was shown at E3 2018.
According to Kicinski, the E3 2018 demo was the most polished part of the game that CD Projekt currently has and its pre-alpha stage is one of the main reasons they’ve decided to showcase the game behind closed doors.
“This is the most polished part of the game we have now, prepared in some sense to show it to people outside the company”
This obviously does not surprise us as most of those who saw Cyberpunk 2077’s E3 demo claimed the very same thing; that while it was mind-blowing, it still had some placeholders here and there and that performance was not really great, though a GTX1080Ti was able to offer 30fps most of the time in – presumably – 4K.
CD Projekt RED has also claimed that the E3 2018 demo was an actual build of the game, something that has become quite obvious by Kicinski’s latest statement.
CD Projekt RED will be present at Gamescom 2018 though, and since the game is in a pre-alpha stage, we are not certain whether the team will showcase its Gamecom 2018 demo to the public or not.
