With the release of the company’s latest quarterly financial report, CD Projekt has assured investors and the gaming community that the next-gen updates for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher III: Wild Hunt are on track. They are set to be released in the first quarter of 2023 for Cyberpunk 2077 and the second quarter of The Witcher III, respectively. Initially, the CD Projekt RED studio had promised these upgrades for last year, but postponed their launches until next year.
The successful launch of Cyberpunk 2077 is notorious, with only the PC version of this first-person RPG being released in a somewhat acceptable state at the end of last year. Since then, CD Projekt RED has released numerous updates and hotfixes for the game, in an attempt to correct as many of its problems as possible.
And the results are starting to show: Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the best-selling games on Steam during the fall discounts, helped by the attractive price, 50% lower than the original one. Moreover, according to user reviews published on Steam, many of the new owners of the game described it as a positive experience.
