Cyberpunk 2077 Summary
Get ready to lose another six months or so of your remaining time on Earth; The Witcher 3 may have been one of the biggest games of all time, butis looking to create something even bigger with next project Cyberpunk 2077.
“Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before. Far, far bigger,” said visual effects artist Jose Teixeira in an interview
reports that a member of the development team has contacted them to reveal that the Witcher 3 studio is in discussions with Electronic Arts regarding a potential takeover.
The employee providedas evidence of their position, though as with all reports like this it's impossible to fully confirm the veracity of the source.
CD Projekt RED "excited to switch to guns" with Cyberpunk 2077, "more and more people" moving onto project
This year was a no-show for Cyberpunk 2077 at E3, but that was by design. In fact we aren't going to be seeing anything substantial at all for about two more years. The initial reveal trailer was to 'gauge interest'.
The response "has been incredible," saidco-CEO Marcin Iwinski, and it also helped them avoid 'burning out on swords'. The studio is kept "energized with Cyberpunk."
CD Projekt says the next two years are for The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 will have to wait until 2017
Issues ofaside, I think it's fair to say the reception for CD Projekt's behemoth RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been rather positive so far. It looks like being the title that breaks the series into the mainstream.
"Sales of the third part will be many times higher than with our earlier games. Preorders indicate this," says CD Projekt's chief executive Adam Kicinski. "We broke into the mainstream. It is such a moment in our firm's history that after some years people will look differently at CD Projekt before and after this release."
CD Projekt RED "now focusing entirely" on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077's "time will come"
Withhaving pushed RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt further back into May earlier this month, the studio is "now focusing entirely" on it to ensure they have it in the best shape possible.
What about that other RPG Cyberpunk 2077? We're told "worry not" about the highly anticipated sci-fi romp, as its "time will come." There's no release schedule yet for it. Hopefully before 2077.
