Cyberpunk 2077 has turned around, CD Projekt RED looks to the future and “dances alone”

CD Projekt RED is not for sale. Speaking to the economic newspaper Pospolita of RzeczThe Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 software president Adam Kiciński discussed the future and confirmed the group’s desire to stay independent.

“We have said for years that we intend to remain independent and we don’t intend to be part of a big company“, said Kiciński. “Also, we are not looking for a strategic investor”. The executive rules out the possibility of someone carrying out a hostile takeover and, indeed, says he is ready increase on acquisitionsafter buying small development teams like The Molasses Flood and Digital Scapes, now CD Projekt Red Vancouver.

We do not rule out other operations of this type in the future.. The objective of our acquisitions is to strengthen our development teams and to be supported in the implementation of our strategy. In this type of investment, we favor experience and expertise and attach great importance to integrating the team into our group culture.”

Kicinski stays confident also concerning Cyberpunk 2077. “The biggest, most ambitious and most complicated game in our 27-year history. In almost every aspect we have tried to go the extra mile, as we have with every game in The series. Witcher they released.”

Releasing a game that opens up a new franchise comes with many challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex. We have created a huge and dynamic futuristic city called Night City, where the characters’ non-linear stories take place. We’re proud of many aspects of the game, but as you know, not everything went smoothly. Nevertheless, Cyberpunk brand awareness that we managed to build huge and the universe of the game, with its characters, won over fans all over the world”.

“We believe that eventually Cyberpunk 2077 will be perceived as a very good game and, like our other titles, sell for years, especially as the hardware becomes more powerful over time and we improve the game. We are constantly working on updates and also developing a version for the latest generation of consoles. Naturally, the original version taught us a lot. It gave us a slap in the face and motivated us to make changes that will make us better in the future.”

50% off on Steam In these days of sales (it costs 29.99), it seems that gamers’ “feeling” towards Cyberpunk 2077 has definitely changed, turning for the better after a year of patches and fixes. Steam user reviews have improved significantly and are now “mostly positive”. In recent days, thanks to the discount, many players have decided to buy the title and give it a chance.

The game’s quest director Paweł Sasko took to Twitter to thank those who left a positive review in the past few days. A sign that at CD Projekt RED it was a very difficult year after the controversies of the launch, especially with regard to the versions intended for “old gen” consoles.
