Cyberpunk 2077 Sales Expected to Be Even Bigger Than the Witcher 3
CD Projekt RED has developed a reputation for delivering some fantastic titles, like the Witcher series and as you can imagine, all eyes are on them to deliver another awesome title in Cyberpunk 2077. Earlier this month it was announced that a release date reveal is not expected until 2019! While this is quite a long time for development, in a recent interview, Adam Kiciński discusses more about the upcoming game.
CD Projekt RED is assuring fans that development is still progressing as planned, however Kiciński explained in a recent interview with Puls Biznesu, a Polish Outlet, that the budget for the title is expected to be more than the budget for The Witcher 3. CD Projekt RED wants to ensure that Cyberpunk 2077 is as polished as possible, and are therefore giving themselves more than enough time to achieve this. Kiciński stated that The Witcher 3 cost over $85 million USD (300 million PLN), $25 million (90 million PLN) of which were direct production costs. The other $60 million were related to indirect expenses. Cyberpunk is expected to be even more expensive to develop.
According to Kiciński though, CD Projekt RED believes that this cost will pay off, as Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to sell more than The Witcher 3 ever did. The Witcher 3 ended up selling over 6 million copies worldwide, so it’s clear that CD Projekt RED has some massive aspirations for their new game. Of course, if it’s anything like The Witcher 3, it isn’t hard to imagine this will happen.
