Well deserved, these guys have earned it. Not only by releasing a damn fine game but also because of their player-friendly approach to pretty much everything.

Agree.

Let's hope a chunk of that profit goes toward making cyberpunk as great as possible.

Off topic but I totally found a reference to Cyberpunk 2077 in The Witcher 3.
When you first talk to Ciri she mentions having been in another realm that was strange, if you ask her about the world she describes it as "people had metal in their heads, fought through lenses from far away, and travelled on flying wagons"

@wakeNbake Yeah I noticed that too. Pretty cool.

Maybe there will be a Ciri easter egg or cameo in Cyberpunk?

Lets hope their next game will be even better and they keep making more money, they deserve it.

I'd love to know how this site says they got back $200 million. That's an average of $50 back for each game sold. That's unreasonable and makes no sense.

This isn't to detract from the great success of Witcher 3, but I find it very hard to believe that they made back $200m from only 4m sold. A safe bet based on reasonable math says around $80m was made back. Which is almost 30% profit gain and all things going forward will just be even more profit.

Edit: Also, people, they don't take home the full retail price of a game. At least half of that goes to pay for the game being put out as well as retailer fees and other things. So, a $60 game sold isn't $60 in CDPR's pocket...

first you need to work your way to get 67$ Million.

Agent_00_Revan1195d ago

Hell, I'll take the measly $200 of a $67 investment.

AzubuEntus1195d ago

Almost triple the profit and still going.

Kal-V31195d ago

Damn, good work! Cyberpunk will get the ONLY budget. :)

Playing the game now and it is fantastic. Definitely this is how gaming should be done.
