Investor Expects Cyberpunk 2077 To Release In Q4 2019
Cyberpunk 2077 is the next project from CD Projekt Red, the studio that gave us The Witcher video game series (The Witcher 3, the third installment in the series was named Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2015). The hype surrounding the game is pretty massive, and it got bigger with the release of new trailer at E3 2018 and then over an hour of gameplay footage a few weeks later. However, the one thing that is still kept under the wrap is the release date for the game, CD Projekt Red has said nothing on this topic, the studio has not even confirmed a year in which the game will launch.
However, if a recent report from Investor Dom Maklerski (the report was in Polish and it has been translated by Reddit user dr4kun, a native polish speaker and a translator) is anything to go by then Cyberpunk 2077 will launch in Q4 2019. As far as sales projection of Cyberpunk 2077, Dom Maklerski expects the game to sold 19 million copies in Q4 alone, and income of 1.9 billion PLN which comes to USD 525 Million.
Cyberpunk 2077 To Release In Q4 2019?
You can check out the translated text below, the source material is this report that appeared on the StockWatch.PL.
"Cyberpunk 2077 vs RDR2: We're keeping to the estimation of a debut in Q4 of 2019, with sales of 19 million copies in Q4 alone, and income of 1.9 billion PLN (about 525 million USD). During a conference call, the Board has confirmed that quality remains the absolute highest priority for CD Projekt, and Cyberpunk 2077 will be no less elaborate and polished than RDR2. For comparison, the sales of RDR2 (gross) was 725 million USD within the first three days after it shipped, 15 million copies within the first eight days, and 17 million copies within the first twelve days (data from Take Two). The game was released only on PS4 and Xbox One consoles. With that in mind, our forecasts for CP2077 seem very reserved - remember the game will be simultaneously both on the consoles [PS4 and XBO] and PC. We also believe that the world of Cyberpunk / sci-fi should be more popular among gamers than the Wild West."
The gaming community should not take this as an official confirmation because analysts are not provided with the release date details by the video game developers and publishers, and in report like these they just make a guess taking into consideration various aspects. Secondly, the translation of the report is coming from an unofficial source. In short, take this Q4 2019 with a grain of salt until and unless we can an official confirmation from CD Projekt Red.
