CDPR Are Confident 'Cyberpunk 2077' Will Sell “For Years”

Cyberpunk 2077 is here for the long haul, said CD Projekt Red in a new interview, and the intention is that the game will be defined by its long-term success and sell "for years."

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, I'd like to mention that Cyberpunk 2077 is still not available on the PlayStation Store, having been pulled from the platform eight days after its launch. The reason for this is that the game was in a sorry state, with glitches galore and crashes that would corrupt the save files beyond salvation. "SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, and we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store and want a refund," said Sony at the time. In spite of this blow, CD Projekt Red continued to update and support the game to lift it out of the doldrums, yet reports of internal mismanagement arose, and even these fixes ended up delayed.

So, where were we? Yes, Cyberpunk 2077 is back, baby, and better than ever, thanks for asking. In an interview with Reuters, co-CEO Adam Kicinski explained that the game is going to be the focus of the studio for some time in order to ensure its profitability and the longevity of the intellectual property. "I don't see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077," said Kicinski. "We are convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of it and therefore successfully sell it for years to come." All in all, more than two million copies of Cyberpunk 2077 have been refunded by the community across all platforms, yet, the modding scene is lively.

These range from improvements to the in-game radio, new cosmetics for character creation like this snazzy chrome body, tweaks to the first-person perspective, environmental additions, and "force innocent bystanders to watch ricardo dance on any screen of your choosing." Like I say, lively. There is a portion of players who are enjoying Cyberpunk 2077 and following the updates that the studio is rolling out, which address a swathe of the gameplay issues that people were struggling with.

According to Kicinski, patch 1.2 was apparently one small step towards getting Cyberpunk 2077 onto the PlayStation Store once again, and that the two companies are "friendly" with each other. It checks out that they'd be happy to work together, as the return of Cyberpunk 2077 to the store means more money for both parties. And, who isn't up for more money, in this day and age? In the meantime, the studio is said to be integrating online services into all of its games, which means that the multiplayer elements to the dystopian RPG might not be off the table after all.
