CD Projekt RED Plans/Rumors

The Witcher Forums have some tidbits from Piotr Gnyp's Twitter Feed with some tidbits from an upcoming interview with CD Projekt RED that reveal some of their plans (thanks Gamer's Hell). Here's their summary:

  • Unnanounced dark fantasy title (Witcher 3?) is in more advanced stages than Cyberpunk 2077.
  • Cyberpunk 2077 is the first in a series, both games are larger than The Witcher, both are multiplaform
  • 2013 will be smaller stuff for CDP RED, no Witcher-caliber release
  • Witcher for iPhone - too early to say anything, but not impossible

EDIT: missed some stuff:

  • no Witcher for PS3 next year, they want TW on Playstation, but not current gen
  • both TW3 and CP2077 will appear on next gen consoles

Diversification sends them packing. It's better to bet on 3 or 4 massive 'AAA' titles a year, rather than to have 3 or 4 times that number of mid-budget titles across several genres. If it's not selling like CoD, it's not selling.
It's not like they do not want that. The majors cant go back anymore.

They have to deliver a huge revenue growth or else ... the investors will pull out. Which they will do anyway because the near hysterical growth rates of the recent decade cant be reproduced anymore. The market is saturated and no new console can change that. Sure, you can still make millions of dollars with console games, make a hefty profit, but there is no more additional growth. And therefore consoles are dead to them.

Do they want that? I have never gotten that impression. I also don't get how consoles are dead to them. It's all they ever talk about. They pay good lip service to the PC when it makes them look benevolent but that's it.

Some of the other stuff you are saying may well be true, but I don't think they got into this position entirely by accident and the big, bad investors are all to blame. When you create unrealistic expectations and pass them off to people, they will expect what you say you can deliver.

The big publishers are the ones who continually burned the bridges behind them. I don't think they want to go back.

Edit: And let's not forget those developers who were doing perfectly well producing their own games and then sold out to those same publishers. Here's looking at you Bioware.
