CD Projekt Red has announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will be published in 24 European countries by Bandai Namco. The publisher will help distribute the game across “selected European markets,” but at the moment, there’s still no word on when that might actually happen.
To those of you who’ve been following the developer’s efforts for a while, this will come as no great surprise. Bandai Namco and CDPR have previously worked together to publish both 2011’s The Witcher 2 and 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt across Europe, but it’s only recently been confirmed that this partnership is set to continue into the futuristic new series, based off the popular Cyberpunk tabletop games.
In a press release, CDPR’s senior vice president of business development, Michał Nowakowski, said “Our current distribution partnership with Bandai Namco is built on the strong foundation and trust developed during our previous projects. We’ve successfully cooperated on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and I’m convinced Bandai Namco will take good care of Cyberpunk 2077.”
Much of Cyberpunk 2077’s release remains shrouded in mystery. The Cyberpunk 2077 release date itself still isn’t known – although many signs point towards a 2019 release – and clues about Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer are still coming to light. Sadly, the involvement of Bandai Namco does little to clue us in further on any of those details – if anything, it just tells us that CD Projekt is sticking to what it knows with the release of its next game.
