CD Projekt Red Has Spent Over $121 Million Developing Cyberpunk 2077
We all knew that the development of Cyberpunk 2077 was going to be big, so this should come as no surprise to many of you.
We all know how big Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be. From all of the different customization options, the interweaving decisions that will be tracked throughout the game, and developing a living city people actually believe they are at, CD Projekt Red was going to drop some big bucks on this games development. And so they have.
In a new corporate report (via Tweak Town), the development studio stated that they have spent over 448.513 PLN ($121 million) developing Cyberpunk 2077 as well as some other unannounced projects. This also includes the development of a multiplayer mode that is coming to Cyberpunk 2077 as well as the new Witcher game that was sort of announced.
On top of that, spending on game projects has gone up 77% to 111 million PLN in the first half of 2020 mainly due to the delay of the game.
“Expenditures on development projects (114 274 thousand PLN), mainly related to Cyberpunk 2077, which has entered its final, most intensive (in terms of expenditures) phase of development, along with other projects underway at CD PROJEKT RED and development of new technologies in the GOG.com segment.”
It was also stated that there are currently two separate teams at CD Projekt Red. One is finishing up Cyberpunk while the other is on The Witcher Series which is made up of Gwent, Thronebreaker, and that new mobile title that was announced a few weeks ago. However, it is stated that a new singleplayer Witcher title is in the works.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release later this year on November 19 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will also be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X as free upgrades for those who bought the current-gen versions.
