Cyberpunk 2077 Development Costs More Than The Witcher 3, Expected Sales To Be Even Bigger

It seems like they have high ambitions and aspirations for this game.

All eyes are on CD Projekt RED and their next game, the long awaited CyberPunk 2077The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was such an incredible game that players the world over are now looking forward to seeing what the studio’s next game, which was announced before even The Witcher 3 was, will be like.

It looks like CD Projekt RED themselves will be leaving no stone unturned with this game, however. Speaking to Polish outlet Puls Biznesu, Adam Kiciński of CD Projekt RED discussed the upcoming game, noting that the budget for the title is expected to be more than the budget for The Witcher 3The Witcher 3, he notes, cost well over $85 million in the end (PLN 300 million), although he also emphasizes that only $25 million (PLN 90 million) were direct production costs, with other costs showing up as indirect expenses; CyberPunk is expected to be more expensive.

However, CD Projekt RED also believes that this will pay off, because according to Kiciński, it has a higher sales potential than The Witcher 3 did. The Witcher 3 ended up selling over 6 million copies worldwide, so it is clear that CDPR’s aspirations for the new game are fairly high- and as long as it maintains the kind of quality The Witcher 3 did, I see no reason for it to not meet them.
