Today in vague, unsubstantiated rumour: Cyberpunk 2077 might be arriving before the end of 2016. This rather large 'might' comes courtesy of Gamereactor Germany, which cites a source close to CD Projekt RED.
I'd be surprised to see it so soon given CD Projekt's reticence to so much as mutter about Cyberpunk until The Witcher 3 is put to bed. Blood and Wine, the second expansion, won't appear until early next year, although large numbers of staff have begun switching projects. Still, perhaps they've learned that too much hype time can be more hassle than it's worth—Cyberpunk 2077 was announced in 2012, you'll remember. I wouldn't blame them for wanting to pull a Bethesda and keep their progress hidden ahead of a big reveal.
I'll let you know should there be confirmation one way or the other, but CD Projekt have never been afraid to leave us guessing.
Speaking today during The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red's latest earnings briefing, management discussed upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 and did not hold back in their enthusiasm for it. According to DualShockers, studio head Adam Badowski said The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt raised the bar, meaning Cyberpunk 2077 needs to be "even better, even bigger, even more revolutionary" than what the company originally set out to do.
Badowski said the game is still "a long ways away" from launch, and further stressed that CD Projekt Red still has "a lot of work to do" to make it a "truly outstanding game."
The executive went on to say that Cyberpunk 2077 is a "huge game" that has a magnitude "much greater" than The Witcher series. Overall, CD Projekt Red has "amazingly large ambitions" for this game.
At the time, Kicinski went on to say that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a big success with 6 million copies sold against an $81 million budget. The game was a "good investment," according to CD Projekt Red management, but at the same time, The Witcher 3 was not a worldwide chart-topper for the full year.
"Sure, many people consider The Witcher 3 to be the best game in the world [in 2015], but this is not a game that broke any sales record," he explained.

That's what I'm really looking forward to. I respect The Witcher series greatly, but don't enjoy the trappings. To have that kind of talent working within a setting that is really interesting to me? Well... you saw the gif that was posted.Jez wrote:The thing with these guys is they promise a lot and hype a lot. THEN in a rather unusual move for the industy in general..actually live up to it and even surpass it.
Witcher 3 was a great game if they manage to produce something of similar quality with cp2077 I'll be more than happy.
Fans eagerly awaiting CD Projekt RED’s next large-scale RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, will be happy to hear (via NeoGAF) that the game is currently in full development.
The question regarding the sci-fi RPG was brought up during their latest shareholder meeting, where the company was asked if the remaining employees not working on Gwent were working on Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt RED confirmed that not only are the remaining employees working on the game, but they have more employees working on Cyberpunk 2077 than they did on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in its most intensive development month.
When asked about the game’s release date, they teased that “they like to surprise, so they won’t reveal it.”
