CD Projekt does not guarantee that Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 will reach PS5 and Xbox Series in 2021: “we learned our lesson last year”

CD Projekt does not guarantee that Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 will reach PS5 and Xbox Series in 2021

One of the most important objectives that remain to be fulfilled in the planning of Cyberpunk 2077 is the arrival of the work to next-gen consoles. PS5 and Xbox Series X / S are waiting to receive an improved version by 2021.

During the last call to update the results with investors, the company has questioned this objective. Thanks to the transcript made by VGC, we learned that Michael Nowakowski, CFO, has warned about this possibility.

“The goal is to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 later this year,” Nowakowski says. In fact, in the displayed results, this is revealed as intended without specifying a date. “At the same time, taking into account the lessons we have learned over the past year and taking into account that this project is still under development, we cannot say with total certainty that the production schedule will not change,” said the person in charge.

The truth is that Night City is not the only one that could change its plans regarding PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. Nowakowski has also referred to The Witcher 3, Geralt of Rivia’s adventure that also points to 2021 for its arrival on new consoles.

“With The Witcher 3, the situation is slightly different in the way that it is being approached mainly by the external team, which is Saber Interactive, the company that we have worked with before on Switch and also with updates in the past. That with Cyberpunk 2077, our goal is to release that game as late as 2021.

However, the development process is ongoing, and we cannot be sure that the release schedule will not change. But for the moment, we are targeting both titles at the end of 2021, and I don’t want to be more specific at this point. ”

In March, while redefining its long-term strategy, CD Projekt targeted the second half of 2021 as a broad framework for launching these reviews.
