Cyberpunk 2077’s 2020 launch was a little bit of a catastrophe, however some still-hopeful followers have been trying ahead to the promised 2021 launch of the sport’s present/next-gen console replace as a relaunch of types for the sport. Properly, you may not wish to maintain your breath. Throughout a webcast detailing CDPR’s financials for the first half of 2021, SVP of enterprise growth Michal Nowakowski admitted that whereas the corporate is aiming to get PS5/XSX updates for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 out this 12 months, they will’t assure it’s going to occur (thanks to Video Games Chronicle for the transcription).
The goal is to launch the next-gen model of Cyberpunk 2077 late this 12 months. On the similar time, maintaining in thoughts the teachings we’ve discovered through the previous 12 months and considering that this challenge nonetheless stays in growth, we will’t say with full certainty that the manufacturing schedule is not going to change.
With The Witcher 3, the scenario is barely completely different in the way in which that that is being tackled by the exterior group primarily, which is Saber Interactive, the corporate that we’ve labored with earlier than on Swap and in addition with updates previously. As with Cyberpunk 2077, our aim is to launch that sport nonetheless in late 2021. Nonetheless, equally, the event course of is ongoing, and we can’t be completely lifeless sure that the discharge schedule is not going to change. However in the interim, we undoubtedly are aiming with each titles for late 2021 and I don’t wish to be extra particular at this second in time.
CD Projekt Pink has slowly been rolling out Cyberpunk 2077 updates all through 2021, with the most recent, model 1.3, including the sport’s first few scraps of free DLC. It actually doesn’t really feel like the corporate’s about to ship a next-gen replace given the variety of Cyberpunk points nonetheless on the desk, however I suppose miracles do occur. I’m extra assured about seeing the replace for The Witcher 3 this 12 months, as Saber Interactive are a group recognized for getting the job completed on time.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out there now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and The Witcher 3 is out there on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Swap. Each video games are playable through backward compatibility on Xbox Sequence X/S and PS5.
