Despite its troubled launch and technical controversies, Cyberpunk 2077 will eventually be hailed by the gaming community as a very good game. That’s according to CD PROJEKT RED president Adam Kiciński, who recently shared his thoughts with Polish economic newspaper Rzeczpospolita in a new interview. Kiciński expressed that he still has plenty of faith in the sci-fi RPG, noting the strength of the brand and the potential of its universe.
“Releasing a game in a new franchise brings many challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex,” Kiciński said. “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.
“We believe that in the long run Cyberpunk 2077 will be perceived as a very good game, and like our other titles, it will sell for years – especially as the hardware gets more powerful over time and we improve the game.
“We’re working on updates all the time, and we’re also working on a version for the latest generation of consoles. Of course, the original release taught us a lot. It gave us a kick and motivated us to make changes that will make us better in the future.”
CD PROJEKT RED shared an updated roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077 in October that revealed players would not be getting additional updates and DLC until 2022. Cyberpunk 2077’s most recent update, Patch 1.31, was rolled out on September 14.
