CD Projekt wants to release games more frequently

Polish games firm CD Projekt has said it intends to release titles more often. 

Speaking to investors for its quarterly earnings call – as reported by VGC – joint CEO Michał Nowakowski was asked whether the company had the development bandwidth to work on a number of large games simultaneously.

Until now, CD Projekt has predominantly been focused on one title at a time, though Nowakowski pointed to the company being able to work on Cyberpunk 2077 DLC Phantom Liberty and its upcoming Witcher game at the same time. 

“We already worked on two projects at the same time when we worked on Phantom Liberty because that was a game-sized project with almost 300 people working on it, and at the same time we have already been working on Polaris, so we’ve had an experience of working on more than one project,” he said.

“And we are working on more than one project at this time as well. There is Cyberpunk 2 being developed in Boston, there is Polaris being developed predominantly here in Europe, and obviously we have other projects, with other teams like Project Sirius, also in Boston with The Molasses Flood.

“And there is The Witcher 1 remake done in cooperation with Canis Majoris, so you can definitely expect us to release more titles and the cadence of launches is something we definitely plan to increase, although I will obviously not comment on what is the space between the projects time wise.”

In its financial presentation, CD Projekt revealed it is primarily focused on Polaris – the first in a new trilogy of Witcher games – and that no one was working on Cyberpunk 2077 now.
