CDPR Game Coming This Year; Not Cyberpunk 2077

There were indications at the end of last year that CD Projekt RED was planning to release Cyberpunk 2077 by the end of this year, but a new strategy roadmap from the developer says their cyberpunk RPG will come next year at the soonest, listing it under "later years (2017-2021). That part of the roadmap also says to expect another AAA RPG in that same period, while as for 2016, they promise a second expansion for The Witcher 3 along with "a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the Studio." Here's word:
Plans
In order to preserve our competitive advantage, this public version of the Group’s plans only lists selected components of our strategic agenda. For the same reasons, the descriptions of certain projects are necessarily terse. Plans have been divided into two periods: the current year (2016) and the following five-year period (2017-2021). Within each period individual .items are not arranged in chronological order.

  • Release of the second expansion pack for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine.

How long have they been working on it? Because it seems to me that they must have restarted it a couple of times, or they haven't really been putting any real resources into development. Now that I think about it, I'm more inclined to believe the latter is the case since the Witcher3 is such a huge and detailed world I doubt they did any real asset development until it was completed.
I have a nifty blue line!
