In a recent video that detailed the financial results of the company, CFO Piotr Nielubowicz himself confirms that “When we meet again in this format, Cyberpunk 2077 will have already been released” at around the 3:15 mark. In context, these reports come out at the end of every quarter, meaning the next report should release by December.
Also in a recent Q&A session which sees top executives such as Adam Kicinski (President), Piotr Nielubowicz (CFO) and Michal Nowakowski (VP of BizDev), it was quoted that “Cyberpunk is in its final stage and all our forces are preparing a global release on the 19th of November” thus reinforcing the belief that everything is on track, unless some sort of unforeseen circumstance happens, which is hopefully not the case.
During the Q&A session, it was also confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will contain microtransactions, but CDPR insists that it won’t be aggressive.
“it’s about creating a feeling of value. Same as with our single-player games: we want gamers to be happy while spending money on our products. The same is true for microtransactions: you can expect them, of course, and CP is a great setting for selling things, but it won’t be aggressive; it won’t upset gamers but it’ll make them happy – that’s our goal at least.”
To be clear, the microtransactions will NOT be in the single player campaign but on a separate online / multiplayer project, as reiterated by CDPR.
CD Projekt Red have also confirmed that players will be receiving free DLC as well, which “will be at parity or even have more DLC that what the Witcher 3 received.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled for a November 19 release date for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with next-gen versions to follow.
