Last week at the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar, CD Projekt talked a little about its latest project Cyberpunk 2077, describing it as a true RPG set in an open-ended world which is even more ambitious than Witcher 3.
CD Projekt’s presentation starts at 3:16:00.
CD Projekt Red briefly discussed Cyberpunk 2077, comparing it to the company’s critically acclaimed RPG from 2015 The Witcher 3, in a video during Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar.
Here is what CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski has to say regarding Cyberpunk 2077:
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious. Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work in a new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it’s very appealing to players, not only RPG players—but this is a true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It’s handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay.[/quote]
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]Great game, more ambitious than Witcher 3, and we believe that we can aim [at] more ambitious business goals as well of course, still having gamer-centric focus and quality focus as a main priority.[/quote]
Kicinski confirms that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on Steam when the game is launched. He also shot down any hopes for a Witcher 4 as the studio is mainly focusing on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent:
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]We can’t create Witcher 4, because that was a trilogy from the beginning. No one said that one day we won’t decide to develop something in the Witcher universe. But now we’re focusing on Cyberpunk and Gwent.[/quote]
Fans could obtain more details of Cyberpunk 2077 at this year’s E3 in June.
