Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be The Most Expensive Game Of All Time
According to information provided by a Polish analytics company, the combined cost of development, advertising and marketing will cause the Cyberpunk 2077 to be the most expensive video game of all time. Despite this, the game will have a similar price tag to the video games currently in the market. A surprising claim has been made about Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red‘s yet to be released game. However, the game will be “the most expensive game of all time“, according to the Polish analytics company Dimboss.
Do not get it wrong; Cyberpunk 2077 will be the most expensive game for developers, not gamers. Because according to Dimboss‘s calculations, Cyberpunk 2077 will cost $ 314 million for CD Projekt Red. Although the game will not come out with a price increase for gamers, it will be a rather “expensive” game for the studio. The data announced by Dimboss is not yet officially confirmed. Therefore, there is a possibility that the cost will be lower or higher. The game was announced in 2013. It is safe to assume that it cost the studio a lot, due to the development process that has been going on for the last 7 years. However, we can say that it is not difficult to guess that it is one of the most expensive games.
The Best is Yet to Come.
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, one of CD Projekt Red‘s most popular games, had a high cost as well. No matter how high the cost, Dimboss does not expect Cyberpunk 2077 to be a game that will surprise the developer by not selling enough copies. Cyberpunk 2077 will have sold 21 million copies by the end of 2020, and a total of 34 million copies within a year after its release, according to analysts. If these predictions become reality, CD Projekt Red is said to have generate over $ 2 billion in revenue.
