CD PROJEKT RED announced today that the next-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not be released this year as originally intended. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are now planned for release next year; Cyberpunk 2077’s new target is the first quarter of 2022, while The Witcher 3’s new target is the second quarter of 2022. CD PROJEKT RED opted to push its next-gen ports of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 back because it felt that they required more development time.

From CD PROJEKT:

CD PROJEKT S.A. (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”) wishes to provide an update regarding its publication schedule for 2021 as concerns the release of dedicated versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for next-gen consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5). The Management Board of the Company hereby announces that, based on recommendations supplied by persons supervising development, it has decided to allocate additional time to both projects. The Company currently intends to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 in the first quarter of 2022, and the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the second quarter of 2022.

A slide deck that CD PROJEKT RED shared as part of its H1 2021 earnings confirms that the company was originally targeting a late 2021 release for its next-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3. Cyberpunk 2077 has not received a patch since August 28, 2021.
