Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED believes that the troubled sci-fi title ‘will be considered a very good game in the long run,’ as the studio continues to patch up the game with various updates.
Speaking with Rzeczpospolita, a Polish economic newspaper, Adam Kicinski, suggested the game will eventually be seen as a success due to brand awareness.
Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest, most ambitious and definitely the most complicated project in our 27-year history. In almost every aspect, we tried to take it a step further, just as we’ve done with every Witcher game we’ve released.
Releasing a game in a new franchise brings many challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex. We brought to life a huge, vibrant futuristic city called Night City, where the characters’ non-linear stories take place.
We’re proud of many aspects of the game, but as we know, not everything went our way. Nevertheless, the brand awareness of Cyberpunk that we’ve managed to build is huge, and the game universe, its characters and details have fans all over the world.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released in December 2020 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, although the console version was plagued by performance issues. You can read more details in our full review, although keep in mind this was before any improvements made via post-launch patches.
CDPR will launch the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Cyberpunk 2077 in early 2022.
