Most articles and news items at the moment are starting off with "tough times", formed in some capacity, and that's no different for a lot of business out there. However, in the case of CD Projekt RED, it's business as (un)usual, with the developer confirming in a company 'overview' that teams have been working from home since mid-march and that the shift to self-isolation hadn't impacted its plans to get Cyberpunk 2077 into punters' hands in the planned September release window.

Additionally, the company has seen a 44% growth in revenue against this time last year, thanks largely to the release of The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch, as well as GWENT finding its way to mobile devices. The company boasted that 2019's Q4 period was "the best final period of the year in our history".

"There is no shortage of motivation and we also possess all the tools needed to facilitate remote work," remarked Adam Kiciński, CEO of the CD Projekt RED group. "We’ve been operating in this mode for over three weeks and to-date results confirm that we can carry on with all our operations without major disruptions. Our plans haven’t changed – we’re steaming towards the September release of Cyberpunk."

News that should make everyone happy in tough times. Moreover, the continued success of The Witcher franchise is likely linked to the recently released Netflix series, and with news that CDPR had reached mutually beneficial arrangements with Mr Andrzej Sapkowski, creator of The Witcher universe, the pair are now setup for "establishing a framework for future cooperation".

Having CDPR's input on the series would be fantastic, and Henry Cavill's channeling of Doug Cockle was always a minor tease that the show had looked beyond the stories and novels, and further to the games. So watch this space.

Bottom line here, however, is that CD Projekt RED is in good stead from both a financial perspective, and from one of stability. To be honest, another delay wouldn't shake anyone's foundations and would perhaps instill a sense of relief the studio is ticking every box over a dedicated release date, but that they're confident their existing setup is flowing well and that that release date can be met within those circumstances makes this games writer an eager cyber-beaver indeed.

And now this...

I'd be playing this either right now or in hours if fate hadn't dealt such a cruel hand.
