Is Cyberpunk 2077’s Release Less Than Several Years Away?

A Polish analyst firm believes CD Projekt RED‘s next game is closer to launch than we would think…

Vestor Dom Maklerski‘s analysis can be found here, but Reddit has translated the part of the analysis that is important. A quote follows:

Cyberpunk 2077 vs. Red Dead Redemption 2: We’re keeping to the estimation of a debut in Q4 of 2019 [January-March 2020!], with sales of 19 million copies in Q4 alone, and income of 1.9 billion PLN (about 525 million USD). During a conference call, the Board has confirmed that quality remains the absolute highest priority for CD Projekt RED, and Cyberpunk 2077 will be no less elaborate and polished than Red Dead Redemption 2. For comparison, the sales of RDR2 (gross) was 725 million USD within the first three days after it shipped, 15 million copies within the first eight days, and 17 million copies within the first twelve days (data from Take-Two). The game was released only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. With that in mind, our forecasts for Cyberpunk 2077 seem very reserved – remember the game will be simultaneously both on the consoles [PS4 and X1] and PC. We also believe that the world of Cyberpunk / sci-fi should be more popular among gamers than the Wild West.”

However, it is just a financial analysis/forecast, which means we have to take it with a grain of salt, but they think Cyberpunk 2077’s launch is 1.5 years away (!). It means the next-gen versions, namely the „PlayStation 5” / „Xbox Scarlett” ports (they aren’t announced yet, these are unofficial names!) would come at a later date. (It worked for Grand Theft Auto V, too…)
