CD Projekt hopes to launch Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen update this year
CD Projekt has briefed shareholders on what's going on at the company, including Cyberpunk 2077's ongoing development and its next-gen update.
“The target is to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 late this year,” according to SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski. CD Projekt “can’t say with full certainty” that it will be done this year, though.
- Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen update might slip to next year
- Almost 200 developers working on the first expansion
- They “strongly believe in the long-term” viability of Cyberpunk 2077
- Dataminers recently found evidence that multiplayer is ‘still in works’
Maybe 2021: The non-committal tone is because CD Projekt has learned some hard lessons about giving definitive dates and would rather be vague than disappointing.
Expansion: Over a third of the studio's employees were still working on Cyberpunk 2077 at the end of June, maintaining the game and working on the next-gen update. Around 160 developers are working on the first expansion, while another 70 have started work on “unannounced projects”
