CD Projekt Red's latest financial report has revealed the studio is moving towards a "dual-franchise" business model supported by huge interest in The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077.

Spin-off games include Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and the Witcher-themed collectible card game GWENT. "In the first half of 2019 gamers actually purchased more copies of The Witcher 3 than during the first half of the previous year!" wrote Nielubowicz.

According to the financial report, in the first half of 2019, CD Projekt earned €50 million, which is 26% more than in the same period a year ago. "This further confirms our belief that investing in top quality games pays off".

Cyberpunk 2077 is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated releases on the horizon. In a recent Twitter thread, the company stated that they intend to forge ahead with both of their popular game franchises (The Witcher and Cyberpunk), alternating between them as they go along.

Elsewhere, thanks to the breathtaking publicity surrounding Cyberpunk 2077, preorders for the game are high, with one-third of digital PC preorders coming from CD Projekt's GOG platform. That's hardly a surprise, given the ongoing success of the game four years after its initial release, but the news is giving fans more to look forward to.

What this means is they will work on various projects at once as they grow in size to be able to ease the wait of game to game releases.
