CD Projekt Red will release two AAA games by 2021, employee confirms

  1. Even with CDPR's bold nature in mind, though, few people truly expected them to deliver on their intent to release not one, but two AAA titles by 2021.

    If you have no idea what "intent" we're referring to, we'll start with a little background information: on CDPR's Capital Group investment page, they lay out their strategy for the coming years regarding game releases (among other things).

    In the section marked "2017-2021," they've always stated that they plan to launch two AAA titles in that time frame.

    Obviously, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of those games, but the other has always been a mystery (and no, it isn't Gwent: Thronebreaker).

    Given that 2020 is just around the corner -- comparatively speaking, anyway -- it seemed impossible that another title could be released in such a short time frame; especially since 2077 will likely get the same post-launch DLC and support that The Witcher 3 did.

    However, it's clear that the company has some sort of trick up its sleeve, because they've just confirmed on their official forums that their plans have not changed. If you can't read Polish, the English translation is as follows (via ResetEra):

    As far as the strategy of the CD PROJEKT Capital Group for 2016-2021 is concerned, its plans to release the second AAA game by 2021 remain unchanged. We are currently focusing on the production and promotion of Cyberpunk, so we do not want to comment on further projects.

    Perhaps this second AAA RPG will be an online version of Cyberpunk? Regardless, we wouldn't be surprised if the studio revealed this mystery game at this year's E3; perhaps alongside a release date for Cyberpunk 2077.

    Not expecting to see 2077 this year, that's for sure.

    You're complaining or hoping?
    They are owners of GOG so if They decide to make a deal with Epic it won't be exclusive for sure...

    Fortunately, they confirmed on Twitter that this won't be the case. But that would indeed suck.

    Never going to happen given they pay 0 in fees on GOG.
