  • Cyberpunk 2077 May Be Ready for Late 2016 (Rumor)

    cyberpunk 2077

    German website Gamereactor.de recently revealed a rumor that suggested Cyberpunk 2077 may get released in 2016. According to a "source close to the company," CD Projekt Red is currently planning to release their next big RPG title before the end of 2016.

    It's assumed that currently Cyberpunk 2077 is only being developed for PC but we'd be surprised if CD Projekt Red doesn't also release console versions of the game, especially considering how successful The Witcher 3 was on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    Whilst it would be great to see Cyberpunk 2077 before the end of 2017 I think it's important to remember that CD Projekt Red have considered the game to be the biggest and most ambitious project from the development studio so far. We also know very little about the supposed source of this rumor.

    Chances are, CD Projekt Red could be aiming for a late 2016 release for Cyberpunk 2077 but whether they hit their target or not will depend on how smoothly development goes. For the most part, there's no way of knowing what bumps in the road occur during development, especially for such an ambitious title. As a result, we wouldn't dismiss the rumor that CD Projekt Red is planning to release Cyberpunk 2077 in late 2016 but any sort of delays could push the release into 2017, which is the publically mentioned release date for the game. It's unlikely CD Projekt Red will comment on these rumors so for now we can only speculate.

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Will be Next CD Projekt Red Game

    cyberpunk 2077

    After the huge success of The Witcher 3, there is no doubt that a lot of Witcher fans are wondering exactly what developer and publisher CD Projekt Red will be planning next. Well, the next game that CD Projekt Red will be putting their effort into once The Witcher 3 is all done and dusted is Cyberpunk 2077, another huge RPG title that's set in a futuristic environment instead of a fantasy one.

    In fact, as it currently stands, most of the staff at CD Projekt Red are now working on Cyberpunk 2077 - this information was recently revealed by the development team themselves.

    The Witcher 3 was a huge project in itself, but it already had it's own lore and world to be based upon. With Cyberpunk 2077, a lot of it is being created from the ground up, and despite that, it sounds like it could be at least as big as The Witcher 3.

    "We are focusing on Cyberpunk 2077. It is a very ambitious and big project, and we need all the people we can get to finish it. A lot of the people in the company are working on it, and more and more are getting involved in it. Most people from the company are involved with it."

    Whilst we don't know much about Cyberpunk 2077 just yet, CD Projekt Red has previously suggested that the game will be far, far bigger than The Witcher 3. Hopefully we'll hear more progress on Cyberpunk 2077 in the near future.

  • Don't Worry, CD Projekt Red is Not Being Bought Out by EA

    Recently a rumor has spread. The rumor has caused a lot of panic in the gaming community and there is a good reason for it. CD Projekt Red has been praised for being such a community driven development studio, especially since the release of The Witcher 3, but according to a rumor, EA were looking into buying out the entire CD Projekt Red team.

    If this plan were to go ahead, EA would essentially have full control over all of CD Projekt Red's future content, which, as you can imagine, has struck fear in a lot of Witcher fan hearts.

    Fortunately, the rumors have now been dismissed and absolutely 100% denied by CD Project Red. Below, a translated version of CD Projekt's chief executive Adam Kicinski's statement on the rumor has been posted.

    "Usually we don't comment on rumors, but it's time to deny the one about takeover because it spread too far. In the name of the board, I would like to state: No, we are not in any talks about the sale of CD PROJEKT RED or GOG. Also, the document verifying the identity/credentials of the source is not real."

    So, there's two important pieces of information to take from the latest announcement from Kicinski. Firstly, you should always take rumors with a pinch of salt - there is always the chance that a rumor may be completely faked simply to gain some internet attention.

    Secondly, CD Projekt Red is definitely not being purchased by EA so there's nothing to worry about there. We'll be able to enjoy The Witcher 3 and all of Cd Projekt Red's future games without any interruption by other third party publishers.

  • Witcher 3 1.08 Patch Incoming

    witcher 3 1.08

    The Witcher 3 will be getting another large patch in the near future and it will include a number of gameplay changes. The latest upcoming update is patch 1.08 and CD Projekt Red has talked a little bit about what the patch will consist of.

    Whilst CD Projekt Red hasn't yet given a release date, the developer has mentioned that the update is "coming soon." Whilst all platforms are getting the same treatment in terms of new patches, the newest updates often make their way to PC first, and are then released on console after they go through an approval process.

    Perhaps the most exciting change in patch 1.08 is the inclusion of "preparatory changes" for the New Game Plus mode. Whilst New Game Plus won't be added in 1.08, CD Projekt Red are leading up to releasing it.

    Other than various fixes and tweaks, the mean changes are within the gameplay section of the patch notes and they can be read below.

    GAMEPLAY:

    • Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
    • Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
    • The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
    • Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
    • Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
    • Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    • We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer.
    • In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour. This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.
  • More The Witcher 3 Free DLC Revealed

    the witcher 3 dlc

    The next free The Witcher 3 DLC has been revealed and unlike most of the previously released content, this new DLC will feature an extra quest that adds extra playtime to the game. Whilst CD Projekt Red usually release two DLC items per week, there will only be one DLC item this week.

    The DLC in question is a side quest called Where the Cat and Wolf Play... and it is the penultimate free DLC available to all The Witcher 3 players. Next week we will see the last DLC item from CD Projekt Red before they start to work on full blown expansions, so let's hope we get something special to go out with a bang.

     

    If we don't get anything particularly special next week, we do still have the side quest this week to look forward to. CD Projekt Red has described the side quest a little, explaining that players will be able to explore an abandoned village as they try to understand the village's history.

    Players will be able to find a new witcher contract in Oreton village once the DLC has been released. The description below is what CD Projekt Red has provided their fans.

    "Explore a forgotten village and discover its terrifying secret. Find out who or what slaughtered its inhabitants and use all your witcher skills to confront this mysterious force."

    Are you looking forward to checking out the latest DLC quest for The Witcher 3? I can imagine it will be just as decent as the other DLC side quests that have been added in the past.
