Gaming-lovers have been constantly asking when Cyberpunk 2077 finally came out. The game had been one of the most popular topics for the whole video-gaming community in the last few years. Developers made the fans waiting for years to find out. Everybody had been waiting impatiently firstly, for the exact release date and then, for the arrival of the game, and now we are only a week away from the premiere of the game.
The fans of Cyberpunk 2077 will probably get even more excited when they find out the news. In fact, recently it was announced that the game developer, Polish company CD Projekt Red collaborated with Twitter, and together they are going to host a digital party to celebrate the launch. The digital launch party will take place on Twitter, on 9th December, on the eve of the game’s release. It’s the first time in the history of gaming when millions of fans have the opportunity to attend a launch party of their anticipated game.
Indeed, a digital party is an amazing way to join the celebration especially, considering the increased risks of COVID-19 which continues to prevent all types of public gatherings. However, the festive season has already started, and said no to a celebration-party of the long-awaited game, would definitely frustrate everybody who had been waiting for the game to finally arrive. This is why a twitter-based launch party attracted the attention of millions of people all over the world.
The fans had been waiting impatiently
Although now everybody is happily waiting for the final release of the game, the arrival of the game wasn’t without issues. The developers changed the release dates many times which made the fans furious. In fact, the game was delayed three times. It was initially planned to come out on April 16th, 2020 but the developers couldn’t arrange everything as this was the time when the Covid-19 pandemic hit and the first lockdown started in the world. Therefore, developers had to postpone the game to September 17th but then again, the worldwide situation worsened again and the game was delayed to November 19th. However, the game didn’t make it again, and finally, it was postponed to December 10th which is hopefully, the final release date of the game and now everybody hopes that nothing will happen in just a week that will prevent the game from coming out again.
All this process was so frustrating and what made it even more unbearable was the fact that the game was first shown to the public back in 2013 when its teaser trailer was first released. This means that we have been waiting for it for almost a decade now and this is why it was so annoying. In fact, it was so frustrating that some websites even started allowing people to bet whether or not the game would release at its appointed time or whether it would be delayed again. That’s exactly what happened in Norway.
According to this website, the gambling companies tried to make the process of waiting simpler for the fans and offered them to place bets on its release. Nowadays video gaming is very popular in Norway, especially because many popular games today are Norwegian mythology-themed which makes it even more attractive to Norwegian players. Besides, the gambling industry is pretty much thriving in the country as it’s completely legal and regulated. Therefore, Norwegians enjoyed placing bets on whether the game would be delayed again or not and had much fun. Some of them would even say that the name 2077 was a hint that the game wouldn’t come until the year 2077. However, of course, it didn’t prevent the developers from postponing Cyberpunk 2077 again and again.
The popularity of #CyberNight is growing on Twitter
The event is probably going to be one of the hottest topics in the eSports industry for the following years if we take a look at what happens on Twitter right now. The gaming community couldn’t stop tweeting about the Cyberpunk 2077 digital event since its announcement. The awesome news was announced on Twitter, and afterward, there have already been more than a million posts about it. The party is referred to as #CyberNight and fans are tweeting using this hashtag without stopping. However, the development of the game started in 2012 and after that, the waiting for the game hasn’t stopped as there have been more than 10 million tweets about the game since this time.
What makes the fans even more excited is the fact that the twitter-based launch party will feature a Livestream Q&A session with developers from the company CD Projekt Red – Patrick Mills and Miles Tost. The massive event will be hosted by content creator Parris Lilly and still, this is not everything and there will be even more surprises for the fans, which makes us think that the creators try to apologize to the fans for making them wait for so long. Currently, it’s already revealed that there will be “hashmoji”, a mix of the hashtag #CyberNight and little emojis that will appear after this special hashtag. But also, a lot more has to come.
Who will be able to attend the event?
Everybody! The creators invited every single fan who has been waiting impatiently during this time. Now the waiting process has finally stopped and if you want to attend the event all you have to do is to secure an invite by just linking the tweet posted by an official account of Twitter Gaming. The digital event will take place on December 9th, at 6 PM EST, and after that fans will finally have the opportunity to find out what it’s like to play a game for which you have been waiting for almost 9 years.
Now everybody is constantly searching for Cyberpunk 2077-related information online and the tendency will probably continue in the next few days but be careful because there are thousands of annoying people who spread the spoilers on the internet and although CDPR tries to catch them and block their spoilers, you may still get spoiled. Whether you will enjoy the digital night or not, one thing’s for sure – the waiting is over and the game is finally going to come out and after 10 December, you will have an opportunity to play Cyberpunk 2077on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia without any more doubts about the postponement.
