Cyberpunk 2077's E3 2018 gameplay trailer hides a neat The Shining Easter egg

Cyberpunk 2077 fans have only just discovered a callback to The Shining in the game's first trailer.

It's been a while since we got treated to new Cyberpunk 2077 footage, so those of us who can't wait to get their hands on it have been spending their time going through existing footage.

Twitter user @Black_Chamber_ recently spotted an Easter egg in the first gameplay demo shown for Cyberpunk 2077. In the E3 2018 footage, the main character enters a room with the number 1237 to find a dead, naked woman in the bathtub.

This may not look like anything special, until you remember that room 237 in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining also had a dead old woman, where she, too, was found naked in the bathtub. There's likely nothing more to it than being a simple callback, but it's a neat addition nonetheless.

CD Projekt Red level designer, Miles Tost, had a very telling reply to Black_Chamber's discovery, saying, "Doesn't look like anything to me." In case you're unfamiliar, this is the line Hosts in Westworld say when they witness something outside their programming that doesn't belong in the park.

Perhaps Cyberpunk 2077 is hiding many more Easter eggs, which we'll get to discover on September 17.
