There is no doubt that CD Projekt RED did an outstanding job with The Witcher 3. It turned out to be one of the most sold action RPGs ever and the studio was quickly established at the top of the industry along with just several other companies.
Keeping that in mind, it shouldn’t surprise us that there is a lot of hype surrounding Cyberpunk 2077. This is CDPR’s next project that we should expect at some point in 2019. Apart from the fans having high hopes for the game, it seems that the industry also believes Cyberpunk 2077 will be a huge success.
The latest news coming to us from Vestor DM, a reputable brokerage company, is revealing that the game should sell in at least 19 million copies in the first three months! Although this is not the official announcement of the studio, no reputable firm would come out with this data without a good reason.
If you know Polish, you can read all about in on their Stockwatch website. In case you don’t, even the brokerage company admits that the goal is very ambitious. This objective puts CDPR at the top of the gaming industry when it comes to sales. We are talking the same category as Blizzard, Epic, or Bluehole.
Even Polish financial experts admit that Rockstar is in a league of their own with huge sales that no company could match. Regardless, their predictions for Cyberpunk 2077 are still impressive. They anticipate the release in the final quarter of 2019. Since it is a financial website, they might mean fiscal year which implies that the potential release date would be the beginning of 2020 after all.
For the first three months of selling, they should record a profit of 1.9 billion zlotys ($525 million). While they may still not be able to achieve Rockstar, the studio itself firmly believes that they will get to the level of their games.
“We are striving to create releases that are similar to Red Dead Redemption 2 in terms of quality,” said Adam Kicinski, the CEO of CD Projekt RED.
This might be an even more ambitious statement as Rockstar really took things to a whole another level. The good news is that, if anyone can match them, it is definitely CDPR.
