Cyberpunk 2077 will be the latest offering by renowned Polish developer, CD Projekt RED; whose claim to fame is the RPG masterpiece The Witcher 3 : Wildhunt. The developers have a lot of expectations associated with the release of Cyberpunk 2077, and one of its co-founders, Michał Kicińsk, believes they can meet and even exceed expectations.
In an interview with Polish website Gazeta he talked about how he thinks that Cyberpunk 2077 can be a bigger success than the Witcher 3
I am convinced that “Cyberpunk 2077″ may be a much greater commercial success than”The Witcher 3”. The Futuristic world of “Cyberpunk” is closer to what we know from everyday life. It is also increasingly popular as evidenced of the phenomenon’s presence in a number of films, books, comics and games. You have to remember that fantasy, is a niche topic.
Michał Kicińsk believes that Cyberpunk 2077 has the potential to be bigger and better than The Witcher 3 because although the source material was great , the entity in the start was only popular in Central-European regions, It had to built as a brand across the world and that obviously took time.While in Contrast Cyberpunk will be able to appeal to a wider audience.
I believe that in the case of “Cyberpunk” CD Projekt will be able to fight not only for the prestigious prizes and awards, but also for great commercial success. The combination of these two elements in the gaming industry is difficult but entirely possible, as the example of Rockstar today, and Blizzard before them.
The Witcher 3 pretty much racked up every other accolade that is associated with gaming , so if somehow Cyberpunk manages to top that it will indeed be a phenomenal achievement by the folks at CD Projekt RED.
