Michał Nowakowski, the company's senior vice president of business development, cited "lessons" learned since the game's rocky 2020 launch as the reason CDPR won't promise a 2021 release date.
"The target is to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 late this year," Nowakowski said in the call. "Keeping in mind the lessons we have learned during the past year and taking into account that this project still remains in development, we can’t say with full certainty that the production schedule will not change."
Cyberpunk 2077 Next-Gen Update Might Not Happen This Year
Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.3 only recently released and addressed some of the numerous visual problems, glitches, and other bugs which brought it close to the state CDPR promised it would originally release in.
While Saber Interactive is the group handling The Witcher 3's next-gen update, Nowakowski adopted the same open-ended answer and refused to give specifics on a launch date. The goal is a late 2021 release, but it's still an ongoing process.
