In a press announcement, CD Projekt Red announced that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment would distribute Cyberpunk 2077 in North America. Many of CD Projekt Red’s past games were distributed by different publishers in different regions, instead of being self-published.
More information on how Warner Bros. will distribute Cyberpunk 2077 in North America:
Michał Nowakowski, CD Projekt’s SVP of Business Development, said that “We’ve worked with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and both releases turned out to be really successful, so we’re entering this new stage of our cooperation with great confidence,” adding that “Cyberpunk 2077 is our biggest and most ambitious project to date, and I’m really looking forward to all the amazing things we can achieve together.”
Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President of Sales in the Americas for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, stated that “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,” adding “Cyberpunk 2077 is a standout title and we are expecting great things from our continued collaboration with CD PROJEKT RED.”
With the relationship these companies have previously established, continuing that relationship through this massive upcoming game makes sense. For more information on Cyberpunk 2077, be sure to check out the gameplay that was released.
Update: Originally, the title for this article indicated that Warner Bros. was publishing Cyberpunk 2077 as well as distributing. This was incorrect, CD Projekt is the publisher and as such the title has been adjusted.
