Coming Soon reports that during the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar, CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski said that their upcoming sci-fi RPG game Cyberpunk 2017 will be the “new ‘Witcher 3,’ but more ambitious.” He also said that he wants it to be their “new blockbuster franchise.” No other details were revealed.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was developed by RED and released in 2015. It went on to win 251 Game of the Year awards and sold nearly ten million copies. The Witcher franchise has sold 25 million copies in all.

He said: “Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious. Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it’s very appealing to players, not only RPG players—but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It’s handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay. Great game, more ambitious than Witcher 3, and we believe that we can aim [at] more ambitious business goals as well—of course, still having gamer-centric focus and quality focus as a main priority.

CD Projekt RED will be at E3 this year, possibly to reveal more on this game.
