Cyberpunk 2077 News – Q4 Release, Video Game Awards, Tweet!


What’s up Neon Nation welcome back to the
channel for some more Cyberpunk 2077 News. In today’s episode well be looking at an
interesting little tweet sent out by the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter earlier in the week, a polish
article about a shareholders conference featuring some Cyberpunk 2077 predictions by analysts
involved, A great RedBull article pointing out some things in Cyberpunk 2077 we may have
missed and The Video Game Awards. So first up we have a polish article referencing
a CDPR conference call, where some interesting details were revealed. Now this Article is very roughly translated
using google translate so the wording may be off here and there, but you can kind of
get the gist of it based off this rudimentary translation. First up in the article, We have the fact
that CD Projekt Red wants Cyberpunk 2077 to be as detailed as Red Dead 2, something we
have mentioned in previous videos. We do also have some analyst projections and
predictions when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077. According to those involved in the conference
call, some are predicting a quarter 4 2019 release of CDPR’s new open world RPG. Just for reference quarters are as you can
imagine in 3 month cycles during the year, making a quarter 4 release sometime in either
October, November or December. It’s important to note that the analysts
have made these predictions, and it’s not something straight from CD Projekt Red. Next in analysts forecasts is how many copies
of the game will sell upon release. According to the analysts they’ve maintained
the assumption that there will be 19 million copies sold in the first quarter equating
to 525 million us dollars. For reference Red Dead 2 sold 725 USD in 3
days, 15 million copies in 8 days, and 17 million copies in 12 days, and only came out
for PS4 and Xbox 1. The analysts also mentioned that they think
the Sci-fi cyberpunk world has more mass appeal than a western setting and that their forecast
for Cyberpunk’s sales are conservative. The article then goes on to question the analysts,
as whoever wrote it doesn’t seem to think 19 million is conservative. Now again this article is very roughly translated,
but to me the fact that they believe a sci fi cyberpunk world has more mass appeal, but
sales being considereably lower than RDR2, which is not even available on PC, makes me
question these forecasts. If we are reading this right, I think Cyberpunk
should have considereably more sales than 19 million assuming it accrues sales the entire
3 months, which spans holiday seasons which will inevitably sell more games, but hey im
no analyst. Bottom line there is a Q4 Prediction for the
release, they aim for Red Dead 2 polish, and sales will be 525 Million USD in Quarter 4
according to these speculations. Next we have an interesting little tweet from
CDPR that was sent out on Cyber Monday. Now, yes it could just be because the word
Cyber is in it, but judging by how infrequently the 2077 page tweets, and their responses
to some comments, im thinking this is a more loaded tweet than it first appears to be. They did respond to a release date related
tweet with a cyberthink response, and in the original tweet there is a thinking emoji,
but I may be looking too deeply into this for what its worth at this time. Infact I got roasted pretty hard by reddit
for even suggesting it, so I’m going to leave it to less naïve minds than me to figure
this one out, if there’s even anything to figure out. Next we have an amazing article from believe
it or not, RedBull. In this article they lay out some of the details
carried over to Cyberpunk 2077 from cyberpunk media and content that has come before it. In this article it shows how the red UI and
HUD are inspired from the terminator series. Kiroshi even seems to follow the same terminator
aesthetic with its eye augmentations. Next is the Stanley Kubrick and steven Spielberg
collaboration film Artificial Intelligence and how an overpopulated earth deals with
issues stemming from the loneliness and isolation that is created as a by product of service
robots who can provide all the human essentials in love, sex and laughter. This may be something that Cyberpunk may decide
to deal with. We already see the isiolation and sadness
in V’s face upon the departure of a Joyboy prostitute from her apartment in the gameplay
demo. Next we have the themes of braindance which
exposes humans dependence on technology and cross-references that with the novel Neuromancer,
about a drug addicted computer hacker who uploads his consciousness onto the internet
to steal data. This sounds very much like netrunning, a pivotal
part in the Cyberpunk lore and world. This concept of speed hacking and web consciousness
was also made more popular by the Matrix Movies. Next we have Ghost In The Shell and its heady
questions on individuality and human existence. It deals with the transfer of consciousness
into a robotic shell, which in essence draws upon parallel concepts in Cyberpunk 2077’s
cyberpsychosis and the humanity cost associated with cyberware. Finally we have Blade Runners inspiration
for the look of the city of Cyberpunk with its neon lights, filthy dark streets and and
decrepit living conditions. Although Blade Runner is set in perpetual
darkness, the world of Night City is modelled off a very similar street aesthetic and feeling. Finally we have the Video Games Awards coming
up soon here on December 6th, so tune in and check that out because it’s the last big
event of the year, and CDPR might hit us with a trailer or some cyberpunk content like they’ve
done with the witcher in the past. I may be streaming the event to react to anything
cyberpunk that may happen so if you wanna tune in to hang out and talk cyberpunk 2077
follow my twitch at twitch.tv/theneonarcadena and let me know if that’s something you’d
be interested in. As always thanks for watching guys, and make
