Cyberpunk 2077 development unaffected by Witcher 3 delay

Posted on March 13, 2014 AT 03:49am

The recently announced delay of The Witcher 3 will not have any affect on the development of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has confirmed.

The developer announced earlier this week that The Witcher 3 had been pushed back from its original 2014 release window and will now launch in February 2015 to ensure that it is the best game that it can be.

Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by a separate team within CD Projekt Red, so the development of Cyberpunk 2077 is not really affected,” CEO Marcin Iwinski told GameSpot.

However, due to the large scale of The Witcher 3 some Cyberpunk 2077 developers have been moved over to help out with the RPG. ”In order to ship a huge RPG we do use help of certain team members between teams. It works this way between Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3,” he said. “So no harm done here.”

“We are working hard to deliver an outstanding RPG and rest assured, that all the learnings on The Witcher 3 are being applied to the Cyberpunk 2077 development.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release in 2015. The game has only been confirmed for PC, but previous rumors have stated that a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release is also planned.
