Following the news about taking the development of The Witcher 3 next-gen upgrade in-house, CD Projekt has calmed down its investors. The company assured that the project is currently not in “development hell.”
CD Projekt senior vice president of business development Michał Nowakowski addressed the matter during the company’s conference call on April 14.
“I’ve been looking at the headlines that popped up here and there over the internet, and I’ve seen one that really drew my attention, which is, ‘Witcher 3 next-gen delayed indefinitely,’ which sounds like the game is in some sort of development hell,” Nowakowski said (via PC Gamer). “I want to state this is not the fact. There’s been a lot of insinuations that we’re going to launch, like, June next year or something like that. That’s completely not the case.”
15 people at CDPR are now working on The Witcher 3 next-gen upgrade.
Nowakowski added that CD Projekt is now evaluating the time, which requires a “bit of investigation.” He noted that there is not much work left to be done on the game, and that it won’t affect the development of the company’s next title.
Earlier this week, the Poland-based company announced its decision to finish the development of this next-gen version in-house. The game previously was in development by Saber Interactive’s studio in Russia.
CD Projekt has several games in the making right now, including a new Witcher title, a major expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, and a single-player project based on GWENT.
