If you’re anxiously waiting for a current-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 or The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, you may come home from a rude awakening. Developer CD Projekt has announced in an official statement that the new editions of the games will not see the light of day in 2021. Cyberpunk 2077 will also be released for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S before The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.
The studio is aiming for a first quarter 2022 release for Cyberpunk 2077. Let’s hope that release goes a lot smoother than the original release of the game. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, which is significantly older than Cyberpunk 2077, should be released for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in Q2 2022. So it is still a bit of a bite to eat.
CD PROJEKT S.A. (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”) wishes to provide an update regarding its publication schedule for 2021 as concerns the release of dedicated versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for next-gen consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5). The Management Board of the Company hereby announces that, based on recommendations supplied by persons supervising development, it has decided to allocate additional time to both projects. The Company currently intends to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 in the first quarter of 2022, and the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the second quarter of 2022.
