CD Projekt is working on a first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077, Chief Executive Adam Kicinski said after the Polish video games maker reported a first-half beat on its net profit.
Cyberpunk 2077, featuring Hollywood star Keanu Reeves, was one of last year’s most anticipated games, but after a bug-ridden start it was kept off Sony’s PlayStation Store for six months, only returning in June.
CD Projekt did not give an update on how many units of Cyberpunk it had sold in the first half of 2021, but company officials told a conference call that the game was the leading source of revenue in the period.
Along with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk drove CD Projekt’s revenue 29% higher in the first half of the year to 470.6 million zlotys ($124 million).
CD Projekt said its net profit was 105 million zlotys, which was 28% lower compared to last year but above the 71 million expected by analysts.
The planned Cyberpunk expansion would involve a charge to gamers, similar to the ones released for The Witcher, board member Michal Nowakowski said during Wednesday’s call.
