"You can probably guess the game we're talking about."

CD Projekt RED left a secret message in today’s Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer.

The message reveals the announcement of the studio’s “other project,” which is “much closer to being completed,” will arrive on February 5. It is a “fully open-world game with an intense story.” CD Projekt RED reckons “you can probably guess the game we’re talking about.”

The Witcher 3, anyone?

Find the full message below.

Do you like our latest creation? We certainly hope so! :) You may remember that we sometimes send you guys secret messages like this. it’s a great way for us to speak right to you instead of burying ourselves in corporate mumbo-jump. So let’s begin!

First of all—have you noticed all the details in our teaser (yes, it’s a teaser, we’ll make a proper trailer in the future)? If you know the Cyberpunk setting, there are some things you can spot, like implants—look for the weapon hands and the real skin—corporate emblems that should look familiar, and more happy hunting!

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. 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!

Ok—and you may wonder why we announced our 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: careers@cdprojektred.com

So, you want to know what kind of game Cyberpunk 2077 will be? The short description is that it will be a story-heavy, nonlinear, open world RPG based on the well known Cyberpunk pen & paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now, and we believe that properly joining nonlinear gameplay with excellent story telling will bring a totally new quality. Hmm. We’ll tell some more about it soon!

And that’s not all that’s new. We are about to reveal our other project, which is much closer to being completed. And yes, it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we’re talking about. ;-) On the 5th of February it will all be clear.

So stay tuned, as we will have quite a lot to show and tell you soon!

We are waiting for you on our newly created forum called Afterlife—what other name could we have chosen for it? :)

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    I was just fixing to post my screenshot of this. It appears so quickly around 2:14 in the video.

    This reminds me I still need to play the Witcher games. I think it’s pretty cool to hide messages in trailers though.

      Great games. Well, the 2nd one is!

  • Bloodios

    Maybe it’s finally hitting the PS3. I’m pretty sure a while back they said they were considering the possibility. But of course, The Witcher 3 would be nice, too.

    I love these guys.
    Sadly, I can’t play The Witcher 2, but I know it’s great.

    holee shit! they are really going all out. need to get that new rig soon so i can run witcher 2 :(

    • Bloodios

      Just curious but are you planning on using Ubersampling? You might need some serious rig, if that’s the case.

        not sure yet, but as of now my pc can’t even run tw2 on low smoothly. xD

    I already have Witcher 1 e 2 on Steam, I need to play this ASAP!

  • ghoti

    I hope this would be the resurrection of the abandoned project THEY, that CDPR acquired when they took over Metropolis Software (Infernal anyone?). I think the foundation of Red engine is what the Metropolis dudes brought in. Just sayin’…

  • PrinceHeir

    The Witcher 2 PS3!

  • Ichimaru

    Gotta love CD Projekt.
    I’m so hoping they release Witcher 2 for PS3, or at least Witcher 3. W3 and Cyberpunk are looking more like next gen games, though. If they remain Xbox/PC exclusives, it’s time for me to get a serious gaming Mac or PC.
    Hey, my first post here. I used to visit Andriasang not too long ago. Didn’t usually post there though, but I read it almost everyday.
    Edit: Sheesh instead of putting the picture for the avatar it ended on the comment instead, lol.
