Expect to hear more about both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 as these two titles may change everything we know about PC games. CD Projekt RED’s CEO was interviewed by TVN CNBC and revealed that the trailer of Cyberpunk 2077 represents the level of in-game graphics that they’re aiming for. Now this could obviously mean two things: a) the visual style of the game will be similar to the trailer and b) that the overall quality of the graphics will be pretty close to the CG.
Let’s not forget that Cyberpunk 2077 is planned for a 2014/2015 release, meaning that these kind of visuals could be possible by that time. Well, not exactly THAT good but pretty close to them.
CDPR’s CEO has also revealed that the game will receive a much bigger marketing budget than any of their previous games, that they target the NA market for it, and that they’re confident it will be a commercial success comparable to the “big games”.
In other news, the company is currently planning to start talks with a lot of publishers about its second triple-A title – possibly The Witcher 3 – that will be unveiled on February 5th. As we’ve already said, this second game will be released sooner than Cyberpunk 2077. Our guess is that CDPR will aim for a 2013-2014 release for that second title.
Stay tuned for more, and special thanks to NeoGAF for spotting the interview.
