CD Projekt: Witcher 3 Delay Won’t Impact Cyberpunk 2077
That’s the question posed to studio boss Marcin Iwinski by GameSpot, and here’s how he responded:
“Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by a separate team within CD Projekt Red, so the development of Cyberpunk 2077 is not really affected,” Iwinski said.
Iwinski explained that some Cyberpunk 2077 developers have been moved over to The Witcher 3 to help get it out the door and meet its new February 2015 release window. He said it won’t have any significant impact on Cyberpunk 2077′s development, but, to me at least, fewer designers = slower progress. It’s why CD Projekt added more devs to The Witcher 3 — to speed things up.
Then again, CD Projekt has never announced a release date for Cyberpunk 2077, so we’ll likely never know just how much of an impact The Witcher 3′s delay had.
For now, it’s all hands on deck for The Witcher 3.
