“We can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of,” says CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski.
The botched launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has rightly been on the receiving end of widespread criticism, and CD Projekt RED’s reputation has taken a major hit as a result. The Polish developer has started the process of fixing the game, most significantly with the recent patch 1.2, which brought about a massive list of changes and improvements. And CDPR has no plans to stop support for the game or abandon it any time soon.
Speaking to Reuters (via GamesIndustry), CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski said that the company doesn’t see shelving Cyberpunk 2077 as an option, and plans on bringing it to a level of quality they “can be proud of”, with plans to sell the game for years to come.
“I don’t see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077,” Kicisnki said. “We are convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of it and therefore successfully sell it for years to come.”
In addition to all the patches that are bound to be coming in for the RPG in the coming months, new content is also going to be added in 2021. Free DLC is on the way, and some leaks may have potentially revealed details on what players can expect. Meanwhile, paid story expansions are also planned, while native PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions will launch later in the year. Recently, however, CDPR confirmed that the separate multiplayer Cyberpunk 2077 project had been cancelled. Read more on that through here.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The game is still delisted on the PlayStation Store, and CD Projekt RED says it will be up to Sony to decide when it gets listed again.
