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

I look forward to Cyberpunk a really unhealthy amount. A mature RPG set in that kind of world would blow my goddamn mind.
Pretty much a winning formula no matter how they do it. With the all the game developer talent in the world, I just don't understand how we don't get more games of the scifi/cyberpunk variety like CDP RED are promising. The Witcher reskinned and restorylined into cyberpunk would be GoTY for a lot of people just on paper, with the depth the developers put into that game.

With how well the Shadowrun Returns kickstarter did without even a glimpse of what the game looked like (which we're now seeing is looking very, very good), the genre is an untapped goldmine.
Over a year to wait for this. Probably two. Painful

The problem is that publishers, shareholders, venture capitalists etc. no longer associate things like deep/complex RPGs with earning potential.

They abandon games that don't appeal to the twitch/cover-shooter/QTE crowd. They can't make money. They can't sell 8 million copies. Therefore they are irrelevant.

As well as Xcom EU did and appears to still be doing, I don't see big publishers rushing to make more games like it. 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.
