CD Projekt Red has announced a Cyberpunk 2077 news stream tomorrow, airing on Twitch.
The announcement came by way of the game’s Twitter account, and while there is some speculation as to what it could be, the general consensus seems to be that we’ll be hearing about the title’s next-gen upgrades sooner than later.
So, choom, how 'bout a date? We'll talk things, y'know.
You're in? Preem!
Let's meet tomorrow, Feb 15th, at 4PM CET, at the usual place: https://t.co/y8iUIM0gBv.

At the time of writing, in fact, it appears that Cyberpunk 2077 has appeared on the Microsoft Store with Xbox Series X and Series S enhanced branding, indicating that next-gen game binaries are likely already loaded and ready to go.
With the launch issues that CD Projekt Red saw, not to mention the numerous delays ahead of the game’s launch, it would be a great strategy to win back some goodwill from fans if they release the update immediately following their announcement. A shadow drop, as the kids say nowadays. We think.
We’re hoping for a short demo of the game, probably a few comparisons, and likely a show off of some ray tracing tech.
We don’t think CDPR would host an entire stream just for the enhanced versions of the game, so we’re also expecting there to be at least a small announcement about some plans for DLC or potentially some additional goodwill-buying in the form of cosmetic upgrades or other in-game gifts.
The Cyberpunk 2077 stream is live on Twitch on February 15 at 10 am Eastern / 7am Pacific.
