Cyberpunk 2077 will release 'when it's done', says Projekt RED
Yesterday, the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED's futuristic open-world RPG, made its highly anticipated debut. The two-minute CG trailer painted a gritty, futuristic world where "psychos" -- individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body -- run rampant. Needless to say, the video lived up to the game's hype and immediately led to questions about its release.
To sum up CD Projekt RED's words, Cyberpunk 2077 will release "when it's ready." It was a pretty generic response, but Projekt RED elaborated on the game's release in a message hidden inside of the trailer. The message briefly flashes during a static scene towards the end and here's what they had to say about the release.
"You’re probably curious about the release date. It’s currently scheduled a way off in 2015 but in truth the delivery date is more like “when it’s done.”
"We will release Cyberpunk to you when we’re convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome," it continued. "We want it to be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever – OK, maybe this sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal! You judge if we deliver it!"
So why announce the game so early before the release? "The reason is that we’re still building our dev team so if you are a talented dude or dudette willing to work in a really different company (gamers rule & boring corporate stuff drools!) on a super ambitious project, send us your application right now!"

It's worth noting that the message also left a cryptic detail about another game that's "much closer to being complete." They didn't say what it was, but did hint it's another fully open-world game with an intense story that we can "probably guess." We're assuming it's The Witcher 3.
