    It seems like you need at least a release window timing for an "official" thread. In the meantime this title holds most of my hope for happy gaming in the (I'm hopeful) not too distant future so I figured those of like mind might want a thread where we can all talk about the latest rumors, hopes, fears, etc.

    I imagine most who clicked this thread have already read the E3 coverage of the live play demo and watched the trailer so rather than discuss that I'll assume knowledge of it and just say that my biggest concern is the multi-player component they are working on. I really hate loot crates and DLC that should be part of a game for which I have already paid full price. I'd hate to see this game and this developer come to that; it would be a real bummer for me.

    E3 demo was running at 4K 30 FPS on an i7-8700K and GTX 1080 Ti: https://www.dsogaming.com/news/cybe...tel-i7-8700-with-an-nvidia-geforce-gtx1080ti/

    (Digital Foundry confirmed the resolution and frame rate):


    Unless an immense amount of optimization/downgradation takes place, I expect it to be a cross-gen game coming out in the 2020 time frame, perhaps a PS5/Scarlett launch title? (As well as 1080p 30 FPS on PS4 Pro and 1440p 30 FPS on XB1X).

    This is pretty exciting given the most probably unoptimized state of the game engine at this early stage. I'm sure my 1080 will be fine for it when it releases. 1080p mind, not 4K.. lol

    I, on the other hand, will definitely be getting a new GPU to enjoy CP2077 in all of its glory!

    Should be fine for 30 FPS like the E3 demo. :p

    Not planning on 4k ;)
    1080p, or rather 1920*1200 is fine by me.

    Yup I know, talking about frame rate and CPU bottlenecking, mate, not your GPU and rendering resolution. Stock clocked quad-core i5 getting long in the tooth these days. i7 or hexacore i5 is needed to maintain stable 60+ FPS in today's games (PUBG, AC:O, WD2, BF1, DX:MD, RotTR, TW3, Crysis 3, etc.). A game of tomorrow like Cyberpunk 2077 with that massive open world, long draw distance, high NPC and object count, complex simulation looks like it's gonna be a CPU monster, like Novigrad on steroids.
