CD Projekt Red has really made its mark with the Witcher series. The latest game launched with great critical acclaim and has already garnered up quite a few sales. However, what about CD Projekt Red’s other announced title? Back in 2013, the developer revealed Cyberpunk 2077, its next big RPG franchise, unfortunately though, we won’t be hearing much about it until 2017.
Speaking with Reuters, CD Projekt Red CEO, Adam Kicinski, said that while the studio expects Cyberpunk 2077 to be a success, it isn’t ready to be talked about as this year and apparently next year will be focusing on The Witcher: “We broke into the mainstream. It is such a moment in our firm’s history that after some years people will look differently at CD Projekt before and after this release. ”
Due to the studio’s growing reputation and the mainstream success of The Witcher, CD Projekt Red is hoping that its next release, Cyberpunk 2077 will also be a big success: “We hope and we are certain that Cyberpunk has even bigger commercial potential. It is too early to talk about it, though. This year, and the next one will be the years of the Witcher.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was first revealed at the start of 2013 but so far, not much is known about the game. The studio still has plenty of work to do on The Witcher: Wild Hunt, with 16 free DLCs planned and two big expansions, the last of which is due to launch early next year. However, beyond that, it is not known what else the studio will do with the franchise.

KitGuru Says: Nobody really knows much about Cyberpunk 2077 but it sounds like it will need to be revealed all over again by the time CD Projekt Red is ready to talk about it properly.
