Cyberpunk 2077 is another highly anticipated CD Projekt Red title which has not caught the headline very often these days. It might be because earlier the title was confirmed not be release for a couple of years. Previously, the CEO of CD Projekt Red confirmed in an interview that Cyberpunk 2077 will be a 2017 release. He confirmed that the CD Projekt Red team was completely focused on the Witcher 3 for now and will start working on Cyberpunk once the launch for Witcher 3 is over with. He said:
“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.”
As a result of this confirmation, Cyberpunk has avoided the headlines up until now that we have further news to share about the game with our readers.
CD Projekt Red Team is Moving Towards Cyberpunk 2077
According to CD Projekt Co-founder Marcin Iwinski, part of the development team has already moved onto Cyberpunk 2077. In an interview to IGN, he said:
“The core team is working The Witcher 3′s expansions, but more and more people are moving over onto Cyberpunk."
That is good news to hear but if Cyberpunk 2077 is still a 2017 release, why did they announce it?
"We released the Cyberpunk teaser trailer because we wanted to see how gamers felt about it," Iwinski explained. "We were super excited about the project internally, but what if it wasn't the right thing [for us]? But the response has been incredible. Now it's just up to us to deliver. We're hard at work on it."
They also praised Fallout 4 adding that:
"We're impressed with Fallout 4's rollout. They came on stage and said 'It's here, it's real, and it's coming out on this date.' We're going to do something similar. We're going to wait [to reveal the game] until we can show off a very meaningful piece of it."
So again, it might be some time before you hear about CD Projekt Red's upcoming title but after the superb release of Witcher 3,the expectation are sky-high from the gaming community and it will be some time before we actually know how to channel those expectations as no further information will be surfacing any time soon.
