With just three months left in 2021, developer CD Projekt Red has big plans to cap off what has been a difficult year for the company. In its latest financial report, the company revealed that it still plans to release two games this year, both next-gen updates. According to the report, the previously announced next-generation versions of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 are still on track to arrive “at the end of 2021”.

Details on what players can expect from new versions of both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt are rare. The financial report itself makes no mention of what will be included in the next generation version of Cyberpunk 2077. The Witcher 3: The Wild HuntOn the other hand, the next-gen version of will come with all of the game’s expansions and “visual upgrades”, as well as “additional elements inspired by the Netflix series”.

While both games are slated for release later this year, CD Projekt Red has also blocked some of its staff from working on the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077. A graph included in the report shows that more than half of the company’s development staff were focused on supporting the game, as well as developing its next-gen version. However, as of June 30, that number has dropped significantly.

With 2021 almost over, CD Projekt Red is quickly running out of time to ship next-gen versions of its last two – and best-selling – titles. The case is doubly true for Cyberpunk 2077, which is still plagued with bugs and issues requiring massive fixes almost a year after its original release.
