The developer now plans to release console and computer upgrades for Cyberpunk 2077 in the first quarter of 2022 (ie by the end of March) and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the second quarter (between March and June).
"Based on the recommendations provided by teams overseeing the development of both games, we decided to postpone their releases until 2022," the CDPR wrote on Twitter.
In a Cyberpunk 2077 roadmap released in January after the game's disastrous debut last December, the CDPR said the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S versions would be released in the second half of 2021. The studio revealed to WitcherCon in July that current general information about The Witcher 3 was scheduled to come later in the year.
In its financial report for the first half of 2021, the CDPR included a graph indicating that about one-third of its development staff worked in support of Cyberpunk 2077 and the current version as of June 30, although the team is gradually moving to new projects. .
