CD Projekt Red recently released a document on their website outlining their plans for the next few years. Along with their two RPG heavy hitters The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, the company is also planning to release two smaller titles of “chart-topping quality” by around 2014-2016. They will be developed by a new US based office while the main team works on the larger titles.
These games will be shorter in length in comparison to CD Projekt Red’s previous releases, but they will still be “approximately 20 hours,” which is longer than most games out these days. The idea is that these smaller releases will support “one of the [company's] product lines.” They might prologues to either The Witcher or Cyberpunk, or something entirely different. In addition, CD Projekt Red wants to release a “cross-platform game on mobile platforms” based on one of it’s properties.
Finally, the document reveals that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will get a “simultaneous [release] in 2014 [on] at least three strong platforms including PC hardware and PS4.” The third platform will most likely be Microsoft’s still unannounced next generation Xbox. Players will have plenty to do after release too, as the studio has promised to give the game “long-term support” by “using completely new mechanisms” to deliver content.
CD Projekt Red seems to be expanding quickly, and with their philosophy of putting fans first, this will only be good for the gaming industry.
