CD Projekt revealed Cyberpunk 2077 Development Costs
The premiere of Cyberpunk 2077 is getting closer. CD Projekt reveals more information about Cyberpunk 2077 Production Budget. This time he revealed some more financial issues. Well upon rough estimate Cyberpunk 2077 production costs are between $ 120 million to $ 250 million USD.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that hundreds of thousands of players have been waiting for for many years. If everything went according to plan, we could have been wandering around Night City since May, but the subsequent slips in polishing the title meant that the premiere was finally set for November 19.
Huge Production Price of Cyberpunk 2077 [Updated 2020]
CD Projekt recently released financial reports where we can find detailed information on REDzi’s spending on Cyberpunk 2077 production and other projects that the company deals with. According to the data included in the report, so far the production of Cyberpunk and side projects has consumed $ 120 million.
CD Projekt also saw a significant increase in gaming expenses (an increase of 77%). It probably has to do with the postponed premiere of Cyberpunk. “The expenses were mainly related to Cyberpunk 2077, which entered its last, most intense (also in terms of expenses) development phase” – we learn from the report.
For comparison, the production of one of the most popular games today, i.e. Grand Theft Auto V, cost about 137.5 million dollars. It cost roughly the same cost to produce another game from the Rockstar Games studio, i.e. Red Dead Redemption 2. It is estimated that GTA V has already earned about 6 billion dollars for the entire sales period, which is an absolute record in recent years when it comes to industry gaming.
CD Projekt also confirmed that currently there are two separate teams dealing with separate franchises in the company. At the moment, it is not known what project we are talking about, but it is very likely that we are working on the next part of the game from the Witcher series. However, in order to find out the answer to this doubt, we will have to wait a little longer.
Until then, we can prepare for the premiere of Cyberpunk 2077, which will be released simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and personal computers. People who purchase the game for current generation consoles will be able to upgrade their game to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X for free when the consoles hit the market.
