Witcher 3 Developer CD Projekt Red to Focus on Witcher This and Next Year; No Cyberpunk 2077 until 2017
CD Projekt Red’s CEO Adam Kicinski recently spoke with Reuters to talk about Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and the studio’s other endeavors, including their previously announced title, Cyberpunk 2077.
Kicinski went into the studio’s expectations for the next few years saying that this year and the next would be “years of the Witcher” and that it’s too early to talk about Cyberpunk 2077, though he believes the title has “even bigger commercial potential” than The Witcher.
We hope and we are certain that Cyberpunk has even bigger commercial potential. It is too early to talk about it, though. This year, and the next one will be the years of the Witcher.
He also spoke about the studios plans and expectations for Witcher 3, mentioning two planned add-ons for the game as well as sales expectations.
Sales of the third part will be many times higher than with our earlier games. Preorders indicate this.
We’ll just have to wait and see Witcher 3’s sales to see if he’s correct, and it looks like we’ll have to wait until 2017 before Cyberpunk 2077 sees the light of day again.
