While a lot of the stuff is boring businessy stuff, there are a good amount of interesting highlights. They talk about GWENT and how it’s doing well. Witcher: Monster Slayer also performing well. A lot of the news-worthy stuff came during the Q&A section towards the end.

A question was asked regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s depreciation, waning interest, pricing, and stuff like that. We get his response from Adam Kiciński, President of CD Projekt Red.

“The nextgen update will be for free for all who had already bought the game on lastgens. The price of the nextgen version will be the same as the price of the current version, as this update is for free.”

Then, later, while discussing what these updates will involve, Kiciński offers this:


“This requires substantial effort since the nextgen version includes graphical updates includes graphics upgrades that exploit the potential of the new consoles, along with a set of systemlevel improvements.”

Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen upgrade has a planned release of Q1 2022. The Witcher 3 update is set for Q2 2022, and will include some free DLC inspired by the Netflix series. Both will be free for existing owners.
