CD Projekt Red had quite the 2015 with Witcher III taking awards left and right, and now they have announced quite a bit of news for their future project, Cyberpunk 2077. During the company’s latest earnings meeting, the top brass talked a little bit about their high expectations for their future title. To this end, studio head Adam Badowski said that Cyberpunk 2077 needs to be “even better, even bigger, even more revolutionary” than initially intended in order for the company to successfully surpass Witcher III.
That is a massive undertaking indeed, but if there’s any company that can pull it off, CD Projekt Red is the one. As shown with their production of Witcher III, they know when a game is ready to be released and will keep it as long as they need to until they’re happy with it. This most likely means that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to take a while to show off its specs and then it will give us a distant release date. Oh, don’t forget to add a couple delays just so you don’t get your hopes up foolishly.
Nonetheless, as CD Projekt Red has made it clear that they plan to release Cyberpunk 2077 as well as another game, which they have kept under wraps, between 2017-2021, they intend to double the staff from 400 developers to 800 developers. Hopefully, this new workforce will allow them to keep within that timeframe while creating projects that change the boundaries of video games.
