Cyberpunk 2077 fans have received a surprise update ahead of the highly anticipated release date for CD PROJEKT RED’s next game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated games on the horizon.
The next title from Witcher 3 makers CD PROJEKT RED has generated a huge amount of hype after stealing the show at the past two E3 expos.
It will undoubtedly be one of the biggest games of next year, and could end up scooping up plenty of Game of the Year awards by the time 2020 is over.
That would be quite an achievement considering the stunning amount of high quality games that are set to release in 2020.
Last of Us 2, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Halo Infinite, Persona 5 Royal, Animal Crossing New Horizons and Marvel’s Avengers are all set to launch in 2020.
While Ghost of Tsushima and Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 could also have release dates next year.
It looks like 2020 will be a vintage year for gaming, and Cyberpunk 2077 could be the pick of the bunch for many gamers.
And ahead of the highly anticipated release of Cyberpunk 2077 fans have been delivered a surprise update.
Despite the huge amount of hype surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 it’s been claimed that some members in the industry are predicting a big sales shock.
The news comes courtesy of Dr Serkan Toto, who is the CEO of Tokyo-based games industry consultancy Kantan Games.
Toto has claimed some investors who have been following CD PROJEKT RED’s stock market performance have made big claims about Cyberpunk’s future sales.
He tweeted: “The dev behind Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red, is listed at the stock exchange in Poland under CDR (WSE).
“There is a group of investors out there that bets their next game (Cyberpunk 2077) is overhyped and won’t reach the 25-30 million sales threshold some people in finance project.”
Toto then added: “I thought that is interesting.
“By comparison (apples vs oranges – useful for reference to some extent).
“RDR 2: 25 million across all platforms.
“Witcher 3: 20 million (ditto)”.
It remains to be seen whether Cyberpunk 2077 does end up hitting the predicted sales figures or falling short of the alleged targets.
But one thing worth pointing out is that Cyberpunk 2077 is launching on more formats than the two games Toto used as a comparison.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has so far only been released on the PS4 and Xbox One, while Witcher 3 is out at the moment on PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
Cyberpunk 2077, meanwhile, will be launching on the PS4, Xbox One, PCs and Google Stadia in 2020.
Cyberpunk 2077 has a release date of April 16 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PCs. It will be out on Stadia later next year.
