Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest and most anticipated releases of its generation, but its horribly botched launch came as a huge shock to the industry as a whole, with CD Projekt RED’s stock taking a huge hit. The Polish developer has been working on fixes and updates for the game since its release a year ago however, and remains confident that in the long run, the action RPG will deliver on its promises.
Speaking in an interview with a Polish outlet Rzeczpospolita, CD Projekt President Adam KiciÅski spoke about the studio’s ambitions for Cyberpunk 2077. While the game fell short of expectations in many ways, KiciÅski insists it will continue to sell for many years to come, and as the developer makes constant improvements to the product – especially as the game progresses. that better hardware and technology will be available – it will continue to “be seen as a very good game in the long run.”
“Cyberpunk 2077 is the largest, most ambitious and by far the most complex project in our 27-year history, âsaid KiciÅski. “We have tried to go further in almost every aspect, as we have done with each new witcher game we released.
âReleasing a game under a new franchise comes with a lot of challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex. We’ve brought the huge, futuristic, vibrant night city to life in which non-linear hero stories unfold. We are proud of many aspects of the game, but – as we know – not everything turned out the way we wanted it to. “
KiciÅski continued: âNevertheless, the awareness of the Cyberpunk The brand that we have managed to build is huge, and the game universe, its characters and its details have fans all over the world. We believe that in the long run Cyberpunk 2077 will be seen as a really good game and like our other titles it will sell for years – especially as the hardware is more efficient and the game is improved by us all the time.
Elsewhere in the interview, KiciÅski also reiterated that Cyberpunk 2077 Native PS5 and Xbox Series X / S versions are expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022. Action RPG patch 1.5 will arrive in that same window, and KiciÅski says no further updates are planned for the game. for 2021. Native PS5. and Xbox Series X / S versions for The Witcher 3 are also scheduled for 2022.
