Cyberpunk 2077 Shows Brief Sign Of Life

After years of complete silence on the subject, CD Projekt Red, developers of The Witcher series, breathes a little air in a somewhat infuriatingly concise tweet.

Despite not tweeting since December 5, 2013 (on the subject of Cyberpunk's teaser trailer), the twitter account simply said "*beep*."

That's it. Just *beep*.

Cyberpunk 2077 was announced during a livestream in May 2012, well ahead of The Witcher 3's release. The Polish developer stated that the announcement of the game, which was described as a game like The Witcher in a cyberpunk universe, was done mostly to recruit talent and that no work would earnestly start until development ceased on The Witcher 3.

In the likely event that the small tweet means anything, it is possible gears are spinning up to reintroduce the game to the public, now in development. Maybe CDPR is alerting people that it's time to pay attention to Cyberpunk 2077 again.

Or maybe someone thought it would be funny. After all, what is more cyberpunk and dystopian than confusion and anticipation?
