Warner Bros distributing Cyberpunk 2077 in North America

Partnership with developer CD Projekt Red continues after publisher distributed past Witcher games in the region

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced today that it will distribute Cyberpunk 2077 in North America across all three platforms: PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

Developer CD Projekt Red has worked with WBIE before to distribute both The Witcher 2 and 3 in North America. Its European partner for The Witcher 3 was Bandai Namco, though the publisher had recently been in a spat with CD Projekt Red over publishing rights due to a mix of partners between the Xbox 360 and PC versions in different regions. It has not yet been announced who will handle distribution for Cyberpunk in other areas.

"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," said CD Projekt Red SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski.

"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."

Update: A previous version of this article erroneously stated that Cyberpunk 2077 is being developed by CD Projekt Red's Wrocław studio. In actuality, it is being developed in tandem by three CD Projekt Red studios: Warsaw, Kraków, and Wrocław.
