Not much is known about Cyberpunk 2077, the next game from the makers of The Witcher 3, but that might soon change after a mysterious tweet from the title's official Twitter account.
Gamers are now in a frenzy over what is expected to be a futuristic spiritual successor to the acclaimed The Witcher series.
Mysterious 'Cyberpunk 2077' Tweet: What Does It Mean?
It has been almost six years since CD Projekt Red announced Cyberpunk 2077, a game that the developer said would be "far, far bigger" than The Witcher 3.
However, after the game's first trailer was released five years ago, not much else has been revealed about it. Players who are looking forward to the cyberpunk open-world RPG are becoming even more restless, as the wait for new information continues.
The official Twitter account for Cyberpunk 2077, however, just came back to life.

That is certainly not much to go on, but at the very least, it is a sign of life for the highly anticipated project. Many excited gamers think that the tweet means that the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account is powering on and are expecting more information about the RPG soon.
What We Know About 'Cyberpunk 2077'
Details on Cyberpunk 2077 have been scarce, but the information has been enough to keep players tantalized over the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is primed to be "the biggest and most ambitious thing" that CD Projekt Red has ever done, which is an even bigger deal because of the success of The Witcher 3.
While the cyberpunk setting is on the other end of the spectrum compared to the fantasy world of The Witcher 3, the two games will share certain similarities. Cyberpunk 2077, based on the tabletop RPG Cyberpunk 2020 but upgraded into a more technologically advanced year, will be an open-world, sandbox-style game with fleshed out characters, just like in The Witcher series.
Players will be given the freedom to explore the game's setting, Night City, on their own terms, with advanced mechanics based on its pen-and-paper inspiration. Known features include in-game characters speaking their own languages, and players will have to purchase implants to understand what they are saying.
In November last year, CD Projekt Red said that it will "leave greed to others," hinting that Cyberpunk 2077 will not have any microtransactions. It was also teased that the game will have an online element for long-term playability.
The Cyberpunk 2077 release date is still unknown, though excited gamers are hoping that the RPG will be released this year.
