Good for those guys and gals. They turned a fairly obscure Polish folk-hero into an International video game super-star in fairly short order and every single game in The Witcher series is better than the one that came before it. The Witcher 3 is definitely in my top 10 games, ever, and I have played A LOT of games.

I hope their level of excellence does not diminish and I wish them every success in the world.

Does that time span for Cyberpunk mean the game comes out and will be supported that long starting in 2017?

well deserved. There are very few corporations that seems to understand their consumers but I'd say CDPR is at the top of the list of those that do, which is why I will continue to support them. Bought Witcher 3 and the expansion pack directly off GOG for full price, which I never do (it's just too easy to get sale prices on PC games), in order to put my money where my mouth is. I wish them continued success as long as they don't change their ways.

Well deserved , a developer that cares for the final user , one of the little that still offers a decent retail/Physical box with map on standard edition.

Hope they keep the good work , specially with Cyberpunk

My guess is that Witcher 3 has got to be close to 10 million.

Nah it will be totally white. Mike Pondsmith says so.

Digital sales of the Witcher 3 - 31.6% representing 50.2% of the revenue

Not surprising yet still notable. Happy to see some success for CPR and I hope its shared by all its employees.

Well, they said 690k copies were activated through GOG as there is no Steam retail key. Steamspy shows 1.6 million owners. I don't know if GOG has release sales figures for GOG alone.

But it definitely did NOT happen with The Witcher 3. I've never seen anyone talk shit about it, ever. I really need to get around to trying it out.

Also, whatever Cyberpunk 2077 ends up as, I definitely need it.

The you haven't been paying attention. Plenty of people ripped the game because of the combat system.

Misc:
- Share price increased by 353% in the last 4 years
- CDPR to buy back shares in the future

Now this is probably the ost important piece of information we got out of this whole presentation, and it is information that makes me pretty happy. Publicly traded companies that don't have enough control and too much responsibility to their shareholders already plague this industry. Good to see one company go the other way.

Did that seriously bother someone here? I fully expect C2077 to feature a wide range of ethnic groups, given the setting. But that insistance on fulfilling some racial minority quotas in every game is so backwards and pointless. Terrible new wave of SJW and other freaks with too much time I've seen lately.

That's the dream. It's based on a PnP RPG system, right? I'd love for this game to have a ton more character customization stuff than Witcher did.

Which, since you don't have to be Geralt this go-round, seems like it would be feasible.

I've been patiently waiting for Cyberpunk for years now and I'll keep waiting, I have a feeling it'll be my game of the generation.

CDPR is one of the few studio who I can say that they have a flawless track record, all their games are great and they're getting better and better as time goes on. I'm happy to see that things are working for them.

Digital future indeed.

Or just buy a digital and physical copy! I gave the cd keys to a friend.


Glad CDPR is in a position to buy back their shares. I want them to remain autonomous as long as possible. Still hoping for a Dune or Bladerunner RPG from them. If only.

Its a game that takes place in America based on a IP created by an American, we can't isolate everything. Just because they are situated more to the east doesn't mean they are outside the bubble other Europeans making games about the US like Rockstar are.

I agreed with everything you said until you unironically used SJW as an insult..... you essentially pull your pants down and shit on your credibility when you do that :/. Shame, as I agreed with the general sentiment you were trying to convey but the gater lingo just forces the cringe.

I don't know if they did it because of the feedback, but Heart of Stone has a couple of Indian looking characters (from a country called Ofir).

I don't think we have to worry about diversity in Cyberpunk.

Also TW has always been a very "Eurocentric" franchise. Non-white people exist in other parts of the world but are rarely encountered. TW1 has Azar Javed from Zerrikania (which sounds like a fantastical version of North Africa/the Middle East, just like the Northern Kingdoms are a fantastical version of Europe) and TW3 has the aforementioned Ofieri guys after the first DLC. Now, I think that there definitely was some space in the vanilla version of TW3 to have a couple of travelling merchants from one of those countries but the game shouldn't have tons of those characters if it took place in the northern kingdoms.

This is one the dumbest things I've read in regards to this game. People used 'source material' to justify the lack of diversity in the Witcher. Fine. But you can't now ignore source material when it comes to Diversity in Cyberpunk, a game that was centered around future America.
