CD Projekt Red’s earnings video suggests that Cyberpunk 2077 will not face any more delays

It would appear that the upcoming single-player (and later, multiplayer) RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is on schedule if a recent video from CD Projekt Red CFO Piotr Nielubowicz is to be believed.

The video recounts the company’s financial progress in the first half of the year and touches on the twice delayed game’s progress, noting that the game is in its final stretch of development and stating, “When we meet again in this format, Cyberpunk 2077 will have already released.” As a refresher, Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on November 19th, while multiplayer features are being pushed back in to 2022.

As one would expect from a video about finances, it also mentions CDPR’s earnings, with consolidated sales revenue reaching 364M PLN (approximately $96.3M USD), which is nearly 70% more than the year before. The company also experienced a net profit of 147M PLN ($38.8M USD), driven by sales of The Witcher 3, Gwent, and Thronebreaker. You can get the full report in the video embed below, just be sure to turn on English subtitles.

CDPR have also confirmed The Witcher 3 will get an enhanced edition for next gen consoles & pc. If you already own the game on current gen it will be a free upgrade.

It’s stuff like this that makes me not at all worried about Cyberpunk 2077 and I am content to wait until it’s ready. CDPR are probably one of the the most consumer friendly dev teams around and its one of the reasons I continue to support them.

Yea, I’ve read that, it is very nice of them to do this. CDPR are an awesome company and I will continue supporting them, including buying every game through GOG if this option is available. Hopefully they will never become corrupted by large corporation who may be willing to buy them (something like what happened to Bioware).

Personally I do not mind more delays as long as the final product will benefit from it. I played way too many unfinished and rushed games and really do not enjoy playing such games. Latest was Wasteland 3, which I actually liked in terms of story, the dialogue, the music and gameplay but which was very rushed with a lot of bugs, making things like co-op unusable or making loading times extremely slow even on very fast Samsung 970 EVO drive, with many more other bugs which broke completing some quests, and with total gameplay time being only 27h for a $60 game (only thing I did not do in that game is a single side quest).

So yea, developers should take as much time as they can afford to make the product good instead of rushing it and I do not mind waiting for a good product by good developer even if it will have to be delayed due to newly discovered issues which need fixing. I understand that no game will be perfect, including Cyberpunk 2077 which will also have plenty of bugs at release, but I’m sure it will be more enjoyable than if it would’ve been released without those delays at the original planned release date.
