CD Projekt Red's head of studio, Adam Kicinski, told Reuters in an interview that the studio hopes to improve Cyberpunk 2077 in the future to ensure that the game sells well. The developer noted that giving up Cyberpunk is not the best option.
"We have no option to put Cyberpunk 2077 on the shelf," Kicinski said. He also spoke positively about the future of the game: "We are convinced that we can be proud of Cyberpunk 2077 and sell it for years to come."
Recall that Cyberpunk 2077 was released at the end of last year and immediately received a flurry of criticism - in particular, the version for PS4 / Xbox One platforms, in which there were many bugs. Then the problems of the game were so obvious that it was even removed from sale on the PlayStation Network - and has not been returned to this day.
As for the CD Projekt Red studio itself, the release of "the most anticipated game of the year" has influenced it too. The company promised that from now on it will test its new products on the maximum number of devices, and will also not demonstrate its developments almost until their release.
Despite the problems immediately after the release, 13 million copies of the game were sold, making it one of the most successful RPG launches of all time. After numerous bug reports, CD Projekt Red has released several major updates to address the existing issues in the game. Thus, the last update contained over 500 fixes.
The situation is still unclear, but already now the developers are reporting that the planned multiplayer game in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe may not come out at all. The studio is focusing on bug fixes right now, after which the first major expansion for the game can be expected.
