CD Projekt, the Polish game developer behind the popular video game series, The Witcher, is gearing up for the launch of their highly-anticipated expansion to Cyberpunk 2077, titled Phantom Liberty. The launch is set to be one of the biggest events of the year for the company, and the game will be the last one produced on their own RED engine. CD Projekt recently reported a 66% leap in full-year net profit to 347.1 million zlotys ($81 million) and have sold over 20 million copies of Cyberpunk 2077 and 65 million copies of The Witcher trilogy.
However, the company recently posted a 33.4 million zloty write-down on project Sirius, a new game in the Witcher franchise. CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski said that the write-down was the result of the evaluation of the scope and commercial potential of the project in its original formula and that the company is currently working on defining a new framework for the project. Kicinski also said that he does not see any risk of write-downs on project Polaris, which is one of the company’s flagship internal productions.
The launch of Phantom Liberty is sure to be one of the biggest events of the year for CD Projekt, and fans of the Cyberpunk 2077 series are eagerly awaiting the expansion. With the company’s strong financials and commitment to producing quality games, it is sure to be a success.
