For CD Projekt Red, 2020 has been a very successful year in terms of revenue and profits, thanks in part to the launch of Cyberpunk late last year. The company recently released its financials for the past year, which turned out to be big numbers.
CD Projekt Red received over PLN 1.154 billion in net profit. The company said these figures have not been verified, so figures in the full report may differ.
These results demonstrate the impact that Cyberpunk 2077 sales will have on CD Projekt Red's annual revenue. For comparison, in 2019 CD Projekt Red earned 175 million PLN in net profit, and in turn the figures for the last 2020 were already several times higher.
As a reminder, Cyberpunk 2077 has become the most successful RPG in the history of video games. Despite this, the game received a flurry of criticism due to numerous errors, including the removal of the game from the PlayStation Store.
In response to the criticism, the company began extensive bug-fixing efforts. CEO Adam Kicinski said giving up the game is not an option. So, recently there was a large-scale update with more than 500 fixes, and at the beginning of the month - a large patch.
Although the future of the game is not yet entirely clear, the developers are already saying that a multiplayer game based on the Cyberpunk 2077 universe may not take place at all. CD Projekt Red is focused on fixing bugs, and then the first expansion for the game can be expected.
