Despite Cyberpunk 2077's launch issues, the game has performed well for developer CD Projekt Red. In fact, the company just posted a new company record for sales and revenue in 2020 thanks to Cyberpunk's commercial reception.

According to Games Industry, CDPR announced that it brought in a record $562 million, which is two-and-a-half times its previous record of $210 million in 2015 - the year The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched.

Games Industry also reports that the company's bottom-line hit a new record, too, with a net profit of $303 million - more than triple the $89.8 million record from, you guessed it, 2015.

The news comes the same day as another 4Chan 'leak', and this time the infamous message board is discussing CDPR's intention to 'redesign' the game.

Honestly, we usually say "take with a fistful of salt" for these kinds of things, but this sounds more like a fan's wishlist than anything else, so don't get too excited.

The anonymous post alleges that CDPR has a two-year plan to 'redesign' the game, with the intention of making it a new experience for anyone returning.

According to the post, the revamped game will focus more on role-playing elements a la the E3 2018 build, and CDPR is expected to offer a "long pre-recorded apology" to fans and investors.

Given the aforementioned commercial performance of the game despite its issues, it seems highly unlikely that this is on the cards.

This week saw a hotfix for the game released, version 1.21. Check out the patch notes here.
