Now that CD Projekt RED has confirmed that they will have something exciting to share at E3 this year for Cyberpunk 2077, fans are scrambling to find any scrap of information they can find before June rolls around. With a possible release date confirmation on the horizon, one job listing in particular may have just given us some peace of mind regarding the rumors regarding a this-year release. 

According to the recent job posting spotted, the studio is looking for a “well-organised Release Manager.” With a recent push for marketing and Community Manager roles with the company, especially state-side, it’s highly likely that this means a release date will be revealed soon. If the game is indeed coming this year, many of the rumors leading up to the big reveal later this Summer could also provide more clarity on what’s next. 

As for the job posting in question: 

Job Description

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 the CD Projekt 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.

Daily responsibilities:

  • 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.

With all of the excitement regarding a new revelation coming soon, it’s easy to get swept away in the desire for this game sooner rather than later. Still, the studio has been very careful to reveal “only when ready,” which has helped to tamper expectations down to a more realistic level to avoid too much hype too soon.
