CD Projekt Red is Scaling Back Cyberpunk 2077 Support to Work On Expansion

CD Projekt Red has been gradually shifting to new projects while continuing to support Cyberpunk 2077. The studio is also allocating more resources to work on the game's expansion.

In CD Projekt Red's Q3 earnings report, it shows that the majority of the company was still supporting Cyberpunk 2077 up until the end of September this year. Now CD Projekt is focused on Cyberpunk 2077's impending expansion along with Gwent-related projects and projects involving Spokko, another studio under the CD Projekt umbrella.

Additionally, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are still on track for their respective Q1 and Q2 2022 releases. This new version of The Witcher 3 will also contain extra items inspired by the Netflix adaptation of the series. They were originally both supposed to release during the second half of this year but were delayed to 2022.

CD Projekt will further support Gwent with more regular updates and content drops. A detailed roadmap of 2022 releases will be presented during the Gwent Masters Season 3 finale on December 5. Spokko's augmented reality game, The Witcher: Monster Slayer, is being worked on to improve its retention and monetization, with a content update coming soon too.

CD Projekt also mentions its Vancouver branch as well as its recent acquisition of Molasses Flood, as they will be working on future projects for the company. Molasses Flood was acquired last month and the studio announced that it is working on its own brand new project based on one of CD Projekt's IPs.

Currently, it's unclear what Cyberpunk 2077's expansion will be and whether it could implement something like multiplayer. We'll just have to wait and see until next year.
