CD Projekt Pushes Back New-Gen Cyberpunk 2077 And Witcher 3

CD Projekt has announced it’s decided to take some more time on developing new-gen versions of its two biggest games. The next year has been extended to include native versions of Cyberpunk 2077 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, as well as The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt for Xbox Series X/S.

The reveal of these delays comes as an update to investors on the CD Projekt website. Cyberpunk 2077’s upgraded version will come in Q1 2022, while Witcher 3 fans will have to wait until Q2 2022 to adventure with Geralt of Rivia on the most recent console hardware. Here’s the full quote of the delay from CDPR’s site. (Note – CDPR has translated this announcement from its original Polish-language version):

CD PROJEKT S.A. (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”) wishes to provide an update regarding its publication schedule for 2021 as concerns the release of dedicated versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for next-gen consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5). Based on the recommendations of those responsible for development, the Company’s Management Board announces it will allocate more time to the two projects. The Company plans to release Cyberpunk 2077’s next-gen version in the first quarter 2022 and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt in its second quarter 2022.

CD Projekt is no stranger to taking its time developing games. Cyberpunk 2077 has been around for many years, long before it was released last December. Awash with technical issues and player dissatisfaction of the console ports, the PlayStation 4 version was pulled from the digital PlayStation Store (it has since been restored to the PSN store) and new refunding policies had to be enacted.

It’s worth noting there are framerate enhancements when playing Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles currently, but any additional enhancements will not be available until the console native versions drop next year.
