At the current time, CD Projekt RED cannot guarantee that the previously announced next-gen updates for the role-playing games The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 will be delivered this year. MichaÅ ‚Nowakowski, SVP of Business Development of the Polish studio, announced this to investors. According to the Video Games Chronicle (VGC), a key reason for a possible postponement is that it learned its lessons after the debacle surrounding the release of flawed Cyberpunk 2077.
Nevertheless, they will continue to try everything to release the update for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, at least in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, this year.
“The target is to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 late this year. At the same time, keeping in mind the lessons we have learned during the past year and taking into account that this project still remains in development, we can’t say with full certainty that the production schedule will not change.”
The situation is somewhat different with the technically upgraded implementation of The Witcher 3 for the two new consoles: Here, CD Projekt RED itself is not responsible for the development, but the external studio Saber Interactive, which had already taken care of the demanding conversion to Switch . In this regard, CD Projekt RED cannot and does not want to guarantee that the update will be completed as planned this year.
