And the release date is. The game's trade show presence includes behind-closed-doors gameplay presentations for media and business representatives in West Exhibit Hall, as well as presentations for all E3 attendees held at the Cyberpunk 2077 booth in South Exhibit Hall. Keanu Reeves, from the memes!

The cinematic trailer features the protagonist V heading to a secret meeting and meeting various characters to collect his reward for completing a mission. After describing the studio's sales pitch about a massive quest, Reeves explained why he joined the project: "I'm always drawn to fascinating stories". Putting Keanu Reeves on stage to announce the release date of one of next year's biggest games, amid a new and frenzied renaissance of Keanu Reeves popularity, is an act of PR dick-waggling that will likely not be topped this year.
"I gotta talk to you about something", Reeves said. "We have a city to burn".
Cyberpunk 2077 is unlike The Witcher in pretty much every way imaginable: The fantasy worlds of The Northern Kingdoms are replaced with the simultaneously refined and rusted free state of Northern California, a remnant of a collapsed America.
