Although this stunning reimagining is only a fan-made demo and will unfortunately never see an official release, CD Projekt Red recently announced his move to Unreal Engine 5 for its upcoming title The Witcher 4. If the studio’s work with Unreal goes well, perhaps it will part ways with REDengine 4, which was used for Cyberpunk 2077, making way for other projects that might look alike to the beautiful demo of Enfant Terrible.

Despite the bug-ridden gameplay of the original Cyberpunk 2077, we gave it a 9, praising its “beautiful cityscape” setting and impressive amount of player freedom. The game recently received a next-gen upgrade and is due for an expansion at some point in 2023.
