DoubleMoose, developers of the upcoming Just Die Already, have announced a new trailer for their games that they swear any resemblance to CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is purely a coincidence, and 100% unintentional.
Just Die Already seems to be filled with elderly mayhem. The devs clearly enjoy their tongue-in-cheek humor and clearly are looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 just like many of us are. They previously released a trailer spoofing Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding.
Just Die Already will be out sometime this summer which will have to be soon, as there’s not much summer left. You can head on over to Steam right now and checkout the demo that’ll be available until tomorrow and you can also add it to your wishlist if you feel so inclined.

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Similarity “Purely Coincidental” Says ‘Just Die Already’ Devs As Fresh Trailer Hits Web
“It was all unintentional, honest. Wait, is that a dictaphone? Are you recording this?” says studio behind old people mayhem sandbox
London, UK – Monday 31st August, 2020 – Responding to suggestions that its latest trailer looks somewhat similar to Cyberpunk 2077, development studio DoubleMoose – the outfit behind forthcoming old people mayhem sandbox Just Die Already, also widely known within the industry as “DoubleWhat?” – has suggested any likeness is “err, , erm, purely coincidental.”
Hype for CD Projekt Red’s latest game is at an all time high, though DoubleMoose co-founder Armin Ibrisagic has suggested the studio was in no way influenced by endlessly re-watching Cyperpunk 2077 trailers, over and over during the development of Just Die Already’s flash new promo.
“We talk a lot about Cyberpunk 2077 at the DoubleMoose office and the trailer kind of just ended up like this unintentionally,” offers Ibrisagic, sat in a home-made replica Cyberpunk jacket, complete with light-equipped pop collar. “Be cool, CDProjectRed. Don’t sue.”
You can watch the aforementioned ode to Cyberpunk 2077 here:
Said trailer follows a similar act of deference towards Death Stranding earlier in the summer. We wish to formally ask all journalists to start asking Hideo Kojima what he thinks of the trailer.
