CD Projekt Red fans will be able to get their hands on Cyberpunk 2077, at least for a moment, if they attend PAX West 2019.
The extended gameplay demo for the upcoming title was made available behind closed doors during this year's E3. But it will be made public during the aforementioned event, with confirmation coming from CD Projekt Red community leader Marcin Momot.
Momot announced as much on Twitter earlier this month, following gaming industry insider Shinobi602 posting: "Cyberpunk 2077 extended gameplay demo won’t be made public until after Gamescom 2019 (August 20-24)."
Momot would respond by tweeting: "It's going to happen exactly during PAX West. :)"

Momot's web popularity nearly took a hit after he announced that a collector's edition of Cyberpunk 2077 won't be making it to the US when the game is released next year. Fans were none too pleased over the revelation and their backlash saw to it that CDPR experienced a change of heart.
It has since been confirmed that, due to the outcry from the fans, the game will be available in collector's edition form in the States. So players will be able to buy the game in a box along with various collector's items (game in a box meaning a downloadable code).
As it pertains to the demo, it's said to contain around 50 minutes of gameplay and offers the same mission through two perspectives. One is through a male version of protagonist V and the other through a female version of V that boasts more action. Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves, is in there as well, but as a ghost-like companion.
The demo was hands-off during E3 and will probably be the same at PAX West but his mode of revealing games - showing behind closed doors at E3 then later revealing it to the public - has become quotidian for CDPR.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set for launch on April 16, 2020, and will be available for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
