Next-gen Versions Of CD Projekt RED Games Delayed!

The CD Projekt RED Polish team has done what they should have done for Cyberpunk 2077 in the first place: they should not have had a bittersweet release in December…


So, it’s been official for a long time that Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series (and the latter will also get a PC update with next-gen innovations). So far, CD Projekt RED planned that the next-generation version of Geralt and V would launch in the second half of this year (the latter being a joke because the PlayStation 5/Xbox Series releases won’t be at their maximum due to the technical limitations of PlayStation 4/Xbox One).

The Polish company has announced on its website that they’ve accepted the suggestion of the people overseeing the development, so they’re giving the two next-gen versions more time to develop, so both games for new consoles will be bidding farewell to 2021 (and thus joining a ton of games that have been similarly delayed, and there could be a whole paragraph here just with them…), so look for them in 2022.

First up is Cyberpunk 2077, coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series (meaning the native next-gen versions, not the backwards-supported, previous-gen, and therefore limited versions) in the first quarter of 2022. So by the end of March at the latest, V will make the transition to next-generation hardware. The Witcher will follow at a slightly slower pace, with Geralt coming only in the second quarter, meaning that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will arrive between April and June for consoles (which launched last November) and PC.

This, of course, begs the obvious question of whether the content for Cyberpunk 2077 will also be delayed because if they stick to a schedule, they might not want to repeat the “we’re releasing something half-finished” scenario that got the CD Projekt RED Polish team burned at the end of last year…
