Red Project CD head quarter CD Project noted that “it is far too early to [Cyberpunk 2077]”to join one of the console’s subscription services.
In a call to investors today (via VGC), the company was asked if we’re going to see Cyberpunk 2077 land on subscription services like Xbox Game Pass or PS Now anytime soon.
President Adam KiciÅski replied, âWe always consider any business opportunity, but this kind of subscription model is good at some point in the product lifecycle, so not too early.
“Wtcher 3 was for a while in [Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Now], but we have to weigh the benefits and costs each time, so we have to compare it to sales, so it’s a data-driven decision. It’s far too early for Cyberpunk. “
The Witcher 3 saw a resurgence in popularity when it arrived on Xbox Game Pass in December 2019. It was retired from service earlier this year, in March 2021, meaning it was available through the service for a while. little over a year.
This follows the developer’s announcement that the current-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 will arrive in Q1 and Q2 of 2022, respectively, as the studio undertakes “exploratory work” on new projects.
Could we see The Witcher 3 return to subscription services when it releases on both next-gen consoles? It remains to be seen. If the RPG and Cyberpunk 2077 arrive at the same time, this could be a good opportunity for CD Projekt Red to rehabilitate its image after the various controversies it courted during the launch of the game.
