Below is an official statement from CD Projekt Red’s Member of the Board and SVP of Business Development Michael Nowakowski regarding this ongoing collaboration.
“We’ve worked with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and both releases turned out to be really successful, so we’re entering this new stage of our cooperation with great confidence. Cyberpunk 2077 is our biggest and most ambitious project to date, and I’m really looking forward to all the amazing things we can achieve together.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has been described as a narrative-driven open-world RPG set within the same universe as the 1988 pen and paper RPG titled Cyberpunk 2020.
