With the rebound of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt achieves a record quarter – News

Present in Netflix’s top 10 across 19 countries the week of its release last September, the 10-episode animated series produced with studio Trigger exceeded the group’s expectations and helped boost sales of Cyberpunk 2077especially since the game inherited at the same time a 1.6 update in connection with the anime as well as new information concerning its future paid extension, phantom freedom. It is also during this big activity in September that Cyberpunk 2077 sold over 20 million worldwide. A colossal success and a muscular recovery, despite all the torment the game went through at the time of its calamitous release on PS4 and Xbox One.

For CD Projekt, the quarter was not limited to the return to form of Cyberpunk 2077. On October 4, the studio took stock with great transparency of its long-term strategy by revealing all its future projects, not without announcing the opening of a new studio in North America and confirming its desire to introduce multiplayer in most of its future titles (which should already be the case at the start for Cyberpunk 2077but circumstances have changed).

While the Polish studio Fool’s Theory is working on a complete open-world remake of the first The Witcher and its subsidiary The Molasses Flood is working on another version of the franchise, CD Projekt has started to distribute its workforce on the next the witchertitle which will mark to recall the beginning of a new trilogy. Polaris, codenamed, already monopolizes a generous section of developers, as can be seen in this graph. However, the studio’s current priority remains to finish phantom freedomthe extension of Cyberpunk 2077 which will be released in 2023.

Of course, the successor to Cyberpunk 2077 is also in the cards even if the production of this title whose code name is Orion hasn’t started yet. It’s the same for Hadar, the code name of what is to become the 3rd major pillar of CD Projekt. Contrary to the witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 whose universe comes from literature or paper role-playing games, this time it will be an original license entirely owned by the studio.
