Among the many rumors about Cyberpunk 2077 release date, there’s one more news we hadn’t hear anything about yet and it comes from the CD Projekt RED CEO Adam Kicinski: we’ll have more news about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2016, as there are more “ideas” other than the DLC Blood and Wine.
According to Kicinski, the Polish studio will still be focusing on the latest Geralt of Rivia adventure next year, even after Blood and Wine gets released, as there are other ideas in the works for the title that of course can’t be shared at this moment.
”This and the next year will be devoted to The Witcher. Apart from the second expansion we have some additional ideas. They should help us animate sales in 2016. The game is selling so well, that we are convinced there are still many people who will buy it if we promote it further.”
The great news about Cyberpunk 2077 is there’s already a release date planned, but the developer isn’t willing to show it up until its marketing engine starts.
”Life after The Witcher exists. We’ve been working on Cyberpunk 2077 for a long time. It’s a completely different reality, set in the future, with corporations and morally grey world. Just to be clear: We already have the release date for Cyberpunk 2077 planned, but we won’t announce it until we are ready to start the marketing campaign. At the moment we’re concentrating on The Witcher and don’t want to distract users from that product, which we are still monetizing.”
Kicinski clarified he used words such as “monetizing” and somewhere else “clients” since he was talking to the business TV Money, but internally the studio never talks about the gamers with such terms.
“I know we are on a business TV, so I am going to use the word “Client”, however internally we don’t use such nomenclature. They are gamers to us. We are trying to quickly fix any wrongs/problems and want players to talk to us as equals. And that’s how we really look at things – I’m not saying it just because I’m in TV. We don’t want to exploit gamers for their money (which is what many other gaming companies do) and that’s why we don’t want to become a part of a larger structure.”
Love is the only feeling we have for these guys. Do whatever it takes for you to make Cyberpunk 2077 the great game it deservers to be, same as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and all of its additional contents.
