The Witcher Devs’ “Most Important” E3
Last year, CD Projekt RED confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 is ready to interface with new consoles. The Warsaw-based studio is developing the game as we speak, and part of the workflow involves future-proofing the game. Just as importantly, they’re polishing for another E3 showcase.
At a CDPR conference call, President Adam Kiciński discussed the online reception to Cyberpunk 2077. Overall, the audience response has been very positive and has aligned with studio expectations. The devs are “very much excited” by how the online sphere has received their new IP, which hasn’t made the team complacent. Even as they work to spruce up the Sci-fi world, another project courses the pipeline. One interesting detail came from the R&D department – CDPR spent 177,817 PLN ($46641.40 USD) on unreleased projects. Mind you, that’s just the amount dedicated to innovation, much more than the previous year’s 64,999 PLN.
As the presentation went on, Kiciński called E3 2019 the “most important ever.” Like last year, there’s a strong chance we’ll see the team represented at the Microsoft stage, for what will be a “strong show.” Therefore, we are liable to see another in-depth look at gameplay. Whatever the case, CDPR’s president promises a show “even stronger than the last one.”
Meanwhile, revealed earlier this month, CD Projekt has another game in development. Kiciński revealed next to nothing about their hidden project, only that it’s completely new and intends to go “beyond gamers’ expectations.” No ports or Witcher 4 in the works. However, the company recently purchased 3,000 square meters of office space, with the intention to add 250 new jobs between their development studios and the GOG PC distribution platform. Before Cyberpunk 2077 launches, there’s a chance we’ll see some preview of the unknown IP.
