Despite woes with Cyberpunk 2077, the company saw record highs.
By this point, I imagine just about everyone reading this is familiar with the technical woes of 2020’s Cyberpunk 2077. The game was one of the most anticipated games of the last console generation and launched to some issues that are still being fixed. Despite that, the game did very well for itself, and carried its developer and publisher to a record year.
As reported by GamesIndustry, CD Projekt RED reported bringing in PLN 2.14 billion ($562 million) in consolidated sales revenues. That’s up over four times of 2019 numbers, and over double of the last record from 2015 when the company launched The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. They also reported a net profit of PLN 1.15 billion ($303 million), which is three times their previous record of 2015.
Earlier this month, the company recommitted to doing everything they could to fix the issues with Cyberpunk 2077 by saying they have no intentions of shelving the project. If you didn’t understand why that was, well, here you go. Doesn’t get more straightforward than that.
