During its investor presentation, CD Projekt Red revealed that both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive releases for next-generation consoles before the end of 2021. Or at least that’s their plan.
Cyberpunk 2077: PowerPoint Edition
It must be said clearly – an update for new generation consoles may be the last resort for the latest CD Projekt Red game. The situation is slightly different in the case of The Witcher – it is definitely a brand beloved by gamers. I recently purchased Wild Hunt for PlayStation 4 with the upcoming free PlayStation 5 update in mind.
Looks like we won’t have to wait long for both spots. From a recent investor presentation ResultsCyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive them later this year. However, I was interested in a completely different topic, namely the division of work on projects in CD Projekt RED.
Slow cutting the umbilical cord?
At first, looking at the chart above, I was horrified. Less than half of CD Projekt is already working on improving the studio’s latest production. Combine this with the fact that working on the game The Polish manufacturer hired famous designers, It can be concluded that CD Projekt wants to leave fixing the game to its community.
In this way, CD Projekt can redirect more powers to the story expansions for Cyberpunk 2077 and other projects. Take a look at how a surprisingly large part of the graph looks like, say, Gwent. Interestingly enough, the graph does not include the team working on the next generation release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Is an external studio involved in this project?
I’m very curious if CD Projekt will deliver next-gen versions of games to the date you set this time around. I’m not hiding, I’d love to play Witcher III on PS5 in reasonable quality, not to mention Cyberpunk 2077. Who knows, maybe the holiday window and sales records will belong to the Polish manufacturer.
