Cyberpunk 2077 “most probably will” come to next-gen, but there’s nothing to announce yet says CDP

Saturday, 12th October 2013 21:41 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

CD Projekt RED has expanded its team in order to facilitate all the work going into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077.

Speaking with Polygon, CDP’s business development manager Rafal Jaki said there around 210 staffers working between the two projects.

The red team, which has over 100 people on it, is focusing on The Witcher 3. The black team, is smaller and working solely on Cyberpunk.

Meanwhile, a third, “sizable” team, is working on the game engine powering both titles.

Jaki said things are going “really, really well” at the development house and the teams are doing some amazing work, apparently.

“I don’t want to brag or anything, but really the stuff they’ve come up with is mind-blowing,” said Jaki adding that while Cyberpunk is definitely coming to PC, it “most probably will” also come to next-gen consoles.

“But we can’t confirm or deny because it’s too early for that,” he added.

A release date for Cyberpunk 2077 has not provided beyond 2015, and The Witcher 3 hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One sometime next year.

    You’d rather they POLISH (yeah) the product, take their time, and deliver a truly well developed game in 2015 OR maybe you’d prefer they annualize it like Ubisoft or Activision? Or release a game every other year? Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t announced that long ago. What’s more I seem to remember that some reports at the start of 2013 were saying, that basically maybe two dozen or so developers were working on the game at that time since 2011 (I haven’t checked, so maybe I’m wrong on this one). That gives us probably around 3, 4 years of development time, with a rather slow start. I think that’s optimal for a videogame. 2015 sounds very reasonable.

    Hoping it does get a console release. I really enjoyed The Witcher 2, very talented devs.

    Dont mind a bit it takes them so long to create. But cant understand how it benefits anyone knowing about a game until 3 months prior to release. I dont buy the 8 to 12 month constant feed of pr.

    I personally prefer 1-2 years of dev time from the announcement till we get to play the game. Sort of what Naughty Dog have been doing.

    Naughty Dog does not make such complicated games as CD Projekt does, so it’s impossible to do at the rate of 1-2 years.

    ND makes linear third person games that are not open world and are not at the same quality as CD Projekt Red games that has a lot of dialogs, consequences, giant maps, complex AI, RPG elements and stuff.

    @6- It’s a next gen game for sure. They just haven’t announced it for any next gen consoles yet.

    i need a tiem mashin (just kidding)

    it’s good they take their time with the game, but i really hope they stay true to their words about free DLC

    unlike 90% of the gamecompnaies out there who sell you a half finished product (rockstar’s is in that list)

    Absolutely, CD Projekt need to take all the time they need. Obviously they have Cyberpunk on the backburner, doing preproduction stuff. And that’s great, they’ll be able to fire it up once they finish The Witcher 3.

    @7 Yeah, that’s a bit weird, but it could very well be that they’re looking for investors, so they want to build up a bit of hype.

    Obviously everybody’s excited to hear about a new CD Projekt game, and you can bank on that sort of thing.

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, WORK LESS EARN MORE Exit35com
