Yesterday, CD Projekt Red held a presentation to summarize the financial year 2021, boasts new total sales for the Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 franchises. Included in the presentation is a full page summary of what the company will do in 2022, some of which we already know, but some new information will be gleaned from it.
Some of the first items on our 2022 to-do list are things we already know. One Cyberpunk 2077 expansion is in the works and will be in development this year, but it won’t see the bright lights of Night City until its release in 2023, as announced on the CDPR Twitter account and in the same earnings call this. In addition, the Witcher series is receiving a new item and a new tool in Unreal 5and the studio will continue work to improve Cyberpunk – no surprises there. CDPR announced this week that they will use develop the new generation upgrade of The Witcher 3: Wild Huntremove Saber Interactive collaborator from the conversion.
What is not known is that The Molasses Flood project is in the works, and while we don’t have a complete picture yet, things have become a little clearer. According to the earnings call presentation, The newly acquired Boston-based studio behind The Flame and the Flood working on a project in one of CD Projekt’s existing IPs. We’ll report on what that game is when we have more information.
And just like the first part of the slide, the rest are expected to work for CDPR this year. In January, the company announced that a a Gwent spinoff player is coming and will still be out this year, while the original standalone version of Gwent and the augmented reality mobile Witcher title The Witcher: Monster Slayer will both continue to be supported. Finally, CD Project will do “research and conceptual work on unannounced projects.”
We look forward to learning more about what the Molasses flood is doing and what CDPR IP is a part of. In which world would you like to see that team build the game? Let us know in the comments below!
