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."
The next big title the company has in the production line is Cyberpunk 2077, a "futuristic, story-driven RPG" with mixed third and first-person elements. An intriguing sneak peek trailer for the game dropped in 2013, but interested gamers will have to wait a while longer to see what the Polish studio has in store.
"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," Kicinski revealed.
I'm still not entirely sure I'll actually have finished exploring The Witcher 3's gargantuan world map by 2017 (not to mention the two lengthyon the way), so while it's a shame we won't be hearing much more about Cyberpunk for a couple of years, I think I'll be able to console myself.
