Cyberpunk 2077 is in the final stretch of development, The Witcher series surpasses 50 million sales

CD Projekt RED announced in its financial report that Cyberpunk 2077 has entered its final stretch of development. The game will come out on September 17th, 2020, and this development/status update more or less confirms that the game will meet that release date deadline.

As CD Projekt RED stated:

“CD Project Red is carrying out with the final stage of development of its most expansive RPG to-date, Cyberpunk 2077. The game features a vibrant, high-tech open world, where players assume the role of V; a cyberpunk who has recently migrated to the most dangerous metropolis of the future: Night City. Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay follows the rules of the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG system created by Mike Pondsmith.”

Moreover, CD Projekt RED announced that The Witcher series has sold more than 50 million units. The first The Witcher game came out in 2007. Thus, it took the franchise around 13 years in order to surpass its 50 million milestone.

CD Projekt RED has also released a sales infograph for The Witcher series. As we can clearly see, the release of The Witcher 3 gave the team a big boost.

Lastly, and as we’ve already reported, the PC version of The Witcher 3 is selling great. According to CD Projekt RED, most of the game’s sales these days come from the PC version. Additionally, The Witcher 3 has sold around 28 million copies, accounting of more than a half of the series’ total sales.

Since The Witcher games were a huge commercial hit for CD Projekt RED, it will be interesting to see whether we’ll get another one. CD Projekt RED claimed that it may, one day, return to this franchise. However, don’t expect a new game with Geralt. After all, Geralt’s story has ended.

Stay tuned for more!
