In a feature from Reuters, CD Projekt Red President and Joint CEO Adam Kiciński talked a bit about the future of Cyberpunk 2077. Specifically, how CD Projekt Red has no plans to shelve the game and how they hope to sell the game for years to come.
CD Projekt Red Won’t Shelve Cyberpunk 2077, Plans to Sell The Game “For Years”
It’s no secret that Cyberpunk 2077 had… well, not the best reception following its release on December 10. Since then, CD Projekt Red has faced a number of issues including Sony pulling Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store shortly after launch.
The company also suffered a massive hack back in February that delayed the release of one of the game’s more substantial patches.
It feels weird to think all of this went down over the last four months, but here we are in April and Cyberpunk 2077 still hasn’t made its way back to the PlayStation Store, and CD Projekt Red is still working on fixing the game’s bugs and glitches.
Despite the turmoil, CD Projekt Red is committed to working on Cyberpunk 2077 as emphasized by statements made to Reuters.
“I don’t see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077. We are convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of it and therefore successfully sell it for years to come,” CD Projekt Red’s Adam Kiciński told Reuters.
Kiciński went on to talk about how the 1.2 patch for Cyberpunk 2077 was a step towards getting the game back up on the PlayStation Store. According to Kiciński, CD Projekt Red has “friendly relations” with Sony.

All in all, it’s nice to hear that CD Projekt Red isn’t giving up on Cyberpunk 2077. It's also worth noting that other games with difficult launches including No Man’s Sky and Fallout 76 have gone on to do relatively well after receiving patches and updates that fixed the issues that players were experiencing.
We imagine the same will happen with Cyberpunk 2077 and come December of this year, the game will look very different from the version released last year.
