Hopefully, the wait will be worth it.

In October, we reported that CD Projekt Red announced a live-action adaptation of Cyberpunk 2077, which is promised to be a hit since the producer of True Detective and Mr. Robot will be working on it. The company didn't provide many details, so it's not clear if the adaptation will be fully based on the game or just take a few narratives out of it, as well as whether this live-action project will be a movie or a TV series.
During the latest earnings call, Michał Nowakowski, CD Projekt Red's Chief Commercial Officer, shared more details on the upcoming yet secretive project. Nowakowski stated, "In terms of promotional activities, there is the Ultimate Edition launching soon, but when it comes to the Cyberpunk IP we're going to be nurturing it and developing it through activities going outside of the game as well."
Nowakowski didn't disclose any information on the adaptation's date of release but said that we shouldn't expect it in the coming year.
"We're not really discussing specifics here but one of the obvious things that we have announced, not happening next year, but going to be developed or moved in the direction next year, is the project we have announced with Anonymous Content," said Nowakowski.
The company also shared its financial results for Q3 2023, disclosing that Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has sold 4.3 million copies within its first two months of release. The game has also achieved an impressive attachment rate of approximately 20%, indicating a significant number of players purchasing both the game and the DLC.
The Q3 2023 earnings also shared some information on The Witcher 4's state. According to the document, more than 300 developers are working on the project, which is half of CDPR's staff.
