CD Projekt Red developers are working hard in remote offices to get Cyberpunk 2077 out of the gate this September. Remote work is a necessity, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To help support coronavirus relief efforts in the company’s native Poland, CDPR has donated $950,000 to WOŚP, a local charitable organization “with many years of experience,” according to a post on the CDPR Facebook page as noted by IGN. According to the posted note, the charity is working to find and send out medical supplies including masks, overalls, and other necessary equipment medical professionals need to assist those suffering from COVID-19.
“We would also like to thank the entire medical service and everyone involved in the fight against the virus. Risking your own health, you fight for ours every day – your hard work is our inspiration. We also have an appeal to everyone who reads this message: take seriously what is happening around us. Listen to the recommendations of those who know about public health. Stay at home and don’t let the virus spread further!”
The donation was split into two parts. Half of the donated money came from CD Projekt Red while the other half was “financed by the main shareholders and the management board of CDPR”.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently on schedule for release on September 17, 2020. Hopefully, the ongoing pandemic will run its course before any delays are necessary. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
