It was already announced that Warner Bros. would handle distribution of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 in North America and now it has been confirmed that Bandai Namco will handle its distribution in most of Europe (incl. major markets like the UK, Germany, France, and Spain). It would seem CD Projekt will handle certain parts of Europe themselves, namely the Eastern section where they have a distribution business set up already. Bandai Namco previously handled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in a similar sort of deal, so this was hardly surprising. We still don't have a release date for the game or even a release year for that matter, but the fact that distribution deals are in place for both Europe and North America is a good sign for those hoping to see the game released next year.
"Our current distribution partnership with Bandai Namco is built on the strong foundation and trust developed during our previous projects," said CD Projekt's Michał Nowakowski. "We've successfully cooperated on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and I'm convinced Bandai Namco will take good care of Cyberpunk 2077."
If you're curious about Cyberpunk 2077 we'd like to direct your attention to our preview from E3 this summer, and you can also check out the lengthy gameplay demo below.
Now does this mean we'll see V in the next Tekken?
