Warner Bros. Interactive Will Distribute ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ in North America

Developer CD Projekt Red is partnering with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to distribute its upcoming role-playing game “Cyberpunk 2077” in North America, it announced on Wednesday.

Warner Bros. Interactive is bringing the game to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in North America and it will be responsible for distribution and promotion. It previously teamed up with CD Projekt to bring “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings” and “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” to the continent. Both releases proved to be successful, and the developer is entering this new stage of cooperation with “great confidence,” CD Projekt senior VP of business development Michał Nowakowski said in a press release.

CD Projekt Red is one of the best game development studios in the world and it’s great to be working with the team again,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, senior VP of  domestic sales for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “’Cyberpunk 2077′ is a standout title and we are expecting great things from our continued collaboration with CD Projekt Red.”

“Cyberpunk 2077” is an open-world RPG based on the 1988 tabletop game “Cyberpunk 2020.” It follows the story of V, a mercenary living in a dangerous metropolis filled with cybernetic street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners, and corporate hackers. CD Projekt recently offered a 48-minute look at its environments, storytelling, and combat. The lengthy demo takes place near the beginning of the game, as V and her friend Jackie track down a missing woman they’ve been hired to locate. The game is reportedly fully playable, but still a work-in-progress, according to CD Projekt.

There’s no word on when “Cyberpunk 2077” will release, although recent rumors point to a 2019 launch window.
