CD Projekt Wants Cyberpunk 2077 to Become a Blockbuster Franchise

CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski said in a presentation at the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar that the studio's upcoming sci-fi roleplaying video game Cyberpunk 2077 will be their "new 'Witcher 3, ' but more ambitious". "We believe it's very appealing to players, not only RPG players but this is a true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences". Due to a decision made by the studio's management, the staff originally designated to work on the futuristic title were reassigned to work on the in-house REDengine 3 alongside the third installment of the Witcher series.

This isn't just about the game's scale, it also refers to having more ambitious business goals for Cyberpunk 2077. "It's handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay", he added.

In relation to the possibility of The Witcher 4, it looks sounds unlikely.


'We can't create Witcher 4, because that was a trilogy from the beginning, ' explained Kicinski. No one said that one day we won't decide to develop something in the Witcher universe.

We're expecting an official reveal at this year's E3, they've already confirmed that they have something planned for the event. "But now we're focusing on Cyberpunk and Gwent". "A big part of that was coming from the Gwent project", as pointed out by Kicinski.

Here's what I'm curious to see, and I'll probably get some hate for it: I want Cyberpunk 2077 to have some decent combat. For those excited about what's next, all of that patience is about to pay off. Stay tuned for more Cyberpunk goodness in the months to come!
