CD Project announced on the 29th (local time) that it is developing a new expansion pack for its flagship Cyberpunk 2077 through its company’s third quarter 2021 earnings announcement.
Previously, CD Project had announced that it was preparing the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion pack, and this time, it was mentioned again and said that there is no change in the plan. The specific content included in the expansion pack and the release date have not been announced, but the manpower distribution graph released this time shows that the number of manpower invested in the expansion pack is increasing from the end of last year to September 30 of this year.
In addition, it can be seen that a considerable amount of manpower was put into the support of Cyberpunk 2077 and the production of the current-generation console version. The CD Project will release the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion pack through the earnings announcement and release the PS5 in the first quarter of next year. The Xbox Series X/S version and major updates will be made for all platforms, he said. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are also in development and will be released in the second quarter of next year.
Finally, CD Project said that The Molasses Flood, which was acquired in October, is developing a new project based on its own IP. The Boston-based developer has made a name for itself as a producer of survival games such as Drake Hollow, which was released last year. After the acquisition of the CD Project, information on new titles under development was not disclosed.
Meanwhile, in the third quarter of this year, the CD Project recorded sales of 144.46 million Zloty (about 41.4 billion won), up 38% from the same period of the previous year, but its net profit decreased by 30% to 16.34 million Zloty (about 4.7 billion won). It stopped. As for the reason why the profit decreased despite the increase in sales, the CD Project explained that the Cyberpunk 2077 update and improvement and the increase in costs caused by the creation of new projects had an impact.
