While E3 2019 is still about two months away, a recent job listing on developer CD Projekt RED's site has somewhat inadvertently revealed new information regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s release.

"We’re looking for a quality-focused and well-organized Release Manager to support us on our current and upcoming projects and to take part in coordination of all global product releases. As release manager you will cooperate and communicate with all stakeholders from CD Projekt RED involved in the release and take active part in organizing whole process. It includes submissions to first party console manufacturers, oversee compliance certification process and working with partners on publishing process on multiple platforms."

The job listing specifically calls for a Release Manager, a title for someone who coordinates game launches between different partners. In addition to this, a recent investors’ call also revealed that the game is in its final stages. All of this information could point to a release sometime this 2019, possibly during Q4, something they may very well address during their E3 panel this year.

The listing also states several key responsibilities for the Release Manager position:

  • Active part of overall product launch process.
  • Interface with global release manager to ensure successful product release.
  • Coordinate communication and key dates between various development and publishing groups.
  • Ensure communication between external partners and the development team, coordinating and negotiating development plans, exceptions, sales/mktg/publishing content, as well as releases.
  • Scheduling, coordination, quality control and external certification process across multiple platforms and products.
  • Submitting builds to external partners inside and out, and overseeing all aspects of external build certification.
  • Create and manage the release checklist.
  • Assist with submissions to age rating agencies.
  • Provide reports on release progress.
  • Working closely with dev team, production, QA, and Live Ops teams on identifying and resolving risk related to releases.
  • Working closely with Live Ops team to coordinate and publish frequent builds, hotfixes, and patches.
  • Help coordinate project teams involved in the product development process.

CD Projekt RED is expected to reveal a whole lot more slew of information during E3 this year, in which their panel is one of the most anticipated. Cyberpunk 2077 has been years in the making, and following the considerable critical and commercial success of their last title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it’s no surprise that CD Projekt RED and their future endeavors are watched closely.
