CD Projekt says it’s ‘way too early’ for Cyberpunk 2077 to come to Xbox Game Pass
The title won’t be joining console subscription services in the near future
CD Projekt has said it’s way too soon for Cyberpunk 2077 to join any console subscription services.
During an investor Q&A on Monday, the company was asked if it has considered bringing the game to subscriptions services like Xbox Game Pass.
“We always consider any business opportunity, but this kind of subscription model is good at a certain moment of the lifecycle of the product, so not too early,” president Adam Kiciński responded.

“Witcher 3 was for some time in a subscription [Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Now], but we have to weigh the benefit and cost each time, so we have to compare it to sales, so it’s a decision based on data. It’s way too early for Cyberpunk.”
Earlier this month, a CD Projekt Red spokesperson told VGC “there are no Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077” after footage of the title was included in a marketing video for the Xbox service.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released in December 2020 and was available for as little as $9.99 over the Black Friday period.
CD Projekt said on Monday that the new-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 are “on track” to meet their recently delayed launch windows.
During the investor Q&A, Kiciński also reiterated plans to “gradually” introduce multiplayer functionality for both the Cyberpunk and Witcher franchises.
