CD Projekt Says 'It's Way too Early' to Release Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox Game Pass - News

CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński during an investor Q&A earlier today that was attended by VideoGamesChronicle was asked if there were plans to release Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox Game Pass. Kiciński said it was way too early to release the game on the subscription service.

"We always consider any business opportunity, but this kind of subscription model is good at a certain moment of the lifecycle of the product, so not too early," said Kiciński.

"Witcher 3 was for some time in a subscription [Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Now], but we have to weigh the benefit and cost each time, so we have to compare it to sales, so it’s a decision based on data. It’s way too early for Cyberpunk."

Cyberpunk 2077 released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in December 2020. It is also playable on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.

It was way to early to release the game in the first place, but that didn't stop them.

Absolutely... Now they are trying to repair it and keep the games title in the news cycles to try and hopefully motivate sales. (A-la. No Mans Sky?)

It's "à la No Man's Sky" which means in the No Man's Sky way in french.

I think what they are actually saying is, "the game still needs a lot of work. Gamepass can get it when we are less ashamed."

A lot of people got the game whilst it was $9.99. But after that, sales will plummet again.

They should have put this out about 18 months ago just replacing Game pass with Gen 8 consoles and it would have saved a lot of grief .

Probably something they’ll do when they want to boost numbers for the multiplayer component.

Too early to be on Game Pass...but also too early to fix all the bugs, have the DLC or have the XSX optimized version. That makes for an easy decision.

Of course it is, the game haven't even properly launched for Series.
