Cyberpunk 2077 sequel tease confirms release date is a long, long way away

Cyberpunk 2077 sequel tease confirms release date is a long, long way away

It’s going to be a long wait for the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel

By now, we all likely know about the troublesome launch that was Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A time that developer CD Projekt RED will never want to repeat.

While the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 was by no means perfect, it was a darn sight better than the absolute mess that was the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports. In hindsight, it’s painfully obvious that CDPR should have released Cyberpunk 2077 exclusively on PC and new-gen consoles.

Thankfully, despite the studio's name being somewhat tarnished at the time, CDPR worked tirelessly to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to the standard that fans were led to expect when the sci-fi RPG was announced all those years ago. Well, at least on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

The fortunes of Cyberpunk 2077 took an upward trajectory with the release of the free new-gen update and since that time, the CDPR title has steadily become one of the best RPGs in recent times. Then in September 2023, the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 expansion, Phantom Liberty was the cherry on top of CDPR's road to redemption.

Yet, just this week, we learned that CDPR has now ended its major update and content support for Cyberpunk 2077 with much of the studio's focus being on its sequel. However, for those who are eagerly awaiting the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, you better be prepared for a long wait.

In a recent financial report, CDPR re-confirmed that the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel is currently in its “early stages of development”. So, what does this mean exactly and when can we expect the sequel to arrive?

At this time, there’s no way of knowing and it’s likely that not even CDPR has a release date in mind, perhaps just a year's release window at best. It’s perhaps worth keeping in mind that Cyberpunk 2077 was first announced in 2012 and from that time, it had taken eight years to be released in 2020.

Hopefully, we won't be waiting nearly a decade for the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel to arrive but given that, CDPR likes to take its time developing games (and rightly so) not to mention not wanting to report those launch woes of 2020, we shouldn’t expect the sequel to arrive anytime soon.
