CD Projekt Red has revealed that it intends to devote the remainder of this year and next to The Witcher 3, as it looks to “animate sales” with the launch of the Blood and Wine expansion.
Upon appearing on Polish business show Money, the studio’s CEO Adam Kicinski touched base with the developer’s content rollout for The Witcher, even hinting that the team is cooking up “some additional ideas” beyond Blood and Wine.
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.
But Kicinski is also relishing the opportunity to venture beyond The Witcher 3 to pastures anew and, in particular, Cyberpunk 2077, the long-awaited sci-fi RPG that the developer has been working on “for a long time.”
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 monetising.
Last we reported, Cyberpunk 2077 was allegedly targeting a late 2016 launch. The Witcher 3‘s Blood and Wine expansion, meanwhile, is due to land in mid-2016.
