There have been some rumors making rounds on the internet about The Witcher developer, CD Projekt Red, suggesting a troubled development of the upcoming title Cyberpunk 2077. Now, the studio has come forward and have addressed these rumors in a statement assuring that development on Cyberpunk 2077 is going fine.
CD Projekt Red said in a statement that since the launch of The Witcher 3 the developers working at the studio has been doubled and there certainly have been some high-profile departures at the studio but, by no means, these departures have affected the development on Cyberpunk 2077. You can read the full statement here.
Also, the studio is going strong in terms of finance as the studio totaled $33 million in profits in the first half of 2017 and the studio itself is worth $2.2 Billion.
In related news, Netflix is developing The Witcher series in partnership with Polish production and visual effects studio Platige Image and Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of The Witcher novels, will serve as creative consultant.
However, the studio CD Projekt Red, who is partly responsible for the mass popularity of The Witcher, is not involved with the upcoming Netflix series.
CD Projekt Red’s Radek Grabowski explained that the studio will not be involved with The Witcher Netflix series in any capacity but added that the team “wish this project all the best and are looking forward to watching the series on Netflix”.
Gamers are certainly happy with The Witcher franchise coming to video games but, author Andrzej Sapkowski is not happy with The Witcher games and believes that the games have spoiled his market.
According to Sapkowski himself, he has nothing against the game industry and the benefits that CD Projekt Red is receiving from the game are well deserved, but the games began to spoil my market.
