CD Projekt shared a couple of interesting news about Cyberpunk 2077 during the conversation with investors. There are three main points:
First, it seems that the release date is really final. Cyberpunk 2077 got age ratings in most countries of the world, including Japan. The country of the rising sun is mentioned separately for a reason: the local agency temporarily closed due to the epidemic, which could affect the release date. So, be ready for September 17 – we are going to get it this time!
Second: as Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt, promises, Cyberpunk 2077 will receive as many DLCs as The Witcher 3 had. And they will be announced before the game’s release.
The developers are going to announce add-ons for Cyberpunk 2077 on just like they did with Wild Hunt. The big DLCs for The Witcher 3 were presented a few weeks before the release. Probably, we can expect DLC announcement for Cyberpunk closer to the end of summer. The Witcher 3 has two paid addons and 16 small free addons, including new quests, weapons and armour sets, cosmetic items and New Game + mode. If CD Projekt are really going to do the same quality stuff, Season Pass purchase might worth it!
Third and the saddest: Michał Nowakowski, senior vice president of business development, said that home-based work and the closure of recording studios due to the pandemic has delayed some of Cyberpunk 2077 localizations. It will be released in the first day patch.
“However, we have managed to record the vast majority of the voice overs, but there are always some last pick-up sessions, and we’re not very worried about that because that’s something we can record even later and add in the form of a digital patch, so by the moment the customers will actually buy the game and in September they would just download a file which would add the missing pieces of recordings, but that process has been hampered a little bit.”
Nevertheless, the job is about to be finished and this is awesome. Recall that the game will be released on all current-gen consoles (except Nintendo Switch) including Google Stadia and even Xbox Series X. It is quite possible that Playstation 5 will also get into the list. But first, we need to wait for the Sony’s word.
