It has previously been reported that the majority of CD Projekt Red worked on other projects, with a small part of the team left on Cyberpunk 2077. This information came directly from the study’s presentation of the financial year 2021. As it turns out, this was a mistake from CD Projekt Red’s page.
The official CD Project Red Investor Relations Twitter account has since addressed the audit and has released an updated version of its fiscal policy report. According to the report, the chart legend of the previous presentation, which showed a major investment in projects like the next The Witcher game, was wrong. In fact, the majority of the team is working on the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion.
At the time of writing, CD Projekt Red claims that it is aiming for a release window in 2023. Given the study’s history of delays, which included delays in the current gene Cyberpunk 2077 patch, it is best to keep expectations subdued. Recently, the studio has even delayed The Witcher 3’s upgrade indefinitely as it continues to improve Cyberpunk 2077’s reputation.
The vague 2023 window could be explained by previous statements from a Cyberpunk 2077 developer. According to quest director Paweł Sasko, work has not stopped on enlargement. Sasko said the team recognizes that there is still work to be done to improve the base game. While work on both the expansion and the base game support is going on at the same time, it has probably slowed down the expansion cycle of the expansion.
